When I affiliated with an offer it was like a zoo of wild animals ... agents in cubicles having conversations on speaking phones, agents talking (yelling) across the room to each other rather than getting up and having a conversation ... (think conference room).... and why I could never work in the office environment.  TOO MANY DISTRACTIONS.   Yes, music was playing, fingernails were being painted, the list goes on and on.

Our office does not play background music. However, they do allow agents to have music in their offices, though it's rare anyone takes advantage of that. If someone wants to listen to music, they usually just plug headphones into their phones.

Good question. I would think ear phones are the way to go. What if everyone plays their own music, or does someone choose? The antique store under my office sometimes puts her BBC news on pretty loud and it comes up through the wall. But then, I have people sitting in the courtyard below having a good time, and it just becomes white noise. But to have someone come into my office and start playing music? Not big enough of a space.

I walk into my office maybe once or twice a month and have never paid attention... but I don't think so. And I have no idea about what agents can or can't do in their private offices, as I don't keep one at my brokerage (we have no cubicles). Considering what they pay to have a private office, I would think they can do whatever they wish in them with respect to music.
