Are you considering a career in real estate or assessing taking your current real estate business to the next level? Let’s chat. First, my story.
I started in RE in 1999 with a tiny brokerage with 2 close friends. It was a good start … and I outgrew them quickly. I needed more. I wanted a professional environment. I wanted leading technology. I wanted to surround myself with Realtors who were better than I was. I wanted a nice conference room. I got all of that.
What I also got that I did not anticipate was a business model, the best training in the industry and top agents sharing their best practices. That last one blew me away … agents, not just the broker, really cared about my success and helped me in any way I needed. Another surprise was it felt like a close-knit community … it really did not feel big at all, I loved the environment … it felt good and my business grew quickly.
The difference maker for me came when I started a team and doubled my business. And then doubled it again. And then I was Agent Leadership Council, then Education Chair, then in 2010 asked to become part of leadership as the Career Development Director in the largest market center in the world, the largest new agent training program in any KW office. What a ride … it’s been amazing. I love these people and the proven models for agent success. As a trainer and coach within KW, I get to help change the world one successful agent at a time.
So many businesses out there think a 10-20% profit is exceptional. With the Keller Williams model, profit under 50% is a problem or “out of model” and needs tweaking. The top successful KW teams run profit margins over 60% and there are many KW agents who netted over a million dollars last year with teams and expansion.
Gary Keller and Joe Williams started Keller Williams in 1983 in Austin, TX. Watch a video on our history here. KW has become the largest and fastest growing real estate franchise in the world with over 800 offices. The culture, training (#1 training organization in the world across all industries), technology, belief system, model, profit share … all provide a roadmap for success, a roadmap to building a life by design, and delivering cutting edge client service.
