Keller Williams Reigns as #1
Keller Williams is the #1 Training Organization in the World! - Keller Williams has been recognized for the growth, productivity and profitability gains resulting from its world-class education and training programs.
A Titan of Real Estate
Keller Williams has surged past all of the competition to become the number one real estate brokerage in the U.S.. KW now leads the charge in everything from agent count to closed sales volume, and in 2017 alone, generated $300 billion in U.S. sales revenue.
KW started in Austin, Texas in 1983, and has grown from just 32 agents to global real estate brand with offices across the world. Keller Williams is now #1 in agents globally, #1 in total volume, and #1 unit sold in the US. Over 165,000 agents have found success with the company. (This number is growing so fast that it's probably outdated as you're reading this.)
Training and Coaching
“Training fuels all of our success,” said KW MAPS Coaching CEO Dianna Kokoszka.
Providing education to associates is a core belief of Keller Williams that drives the success of the company and its associates. Keller Williams has more than 160,000 real estate agents, operating in over 800 offices across the globe and is now the #1 Real Estate company in the US in Agent Count, Units Closed and Closed Volume. To ensure that the most effective models and systems are included in training materials, Keller Williams constantly renews its training programs. Information compiled from the proven models and systems of top agents and leaders in the field are incorporated into training programs.
“Because of our focus on training, we attract more agents than any other real estate franchise,” President John Davis said. “As a commissioned-based industry, our challenge is to guide thousands of associates through our training programs so they can get into production quickly and build their businesses. This creates more opportunities for them and more opportunities for their families.”
In 2015, Training Magazine named Keller Williams Realty the No. 1 training company across all industries.
Excellence Through Training
In 2012, Keller Williams now-CEO, John Davis, began expanding a new model he'd developed as a Team Leader to hold powerful conversations with all agents and market center leadership. In 2016, the company launched the Career Growth Initiative (CGI), using these proven systems, models, and conversations to boost production and energize agents' businesses. The results, as they say, speak for themselves.
A Culture of Shared Prosperity
With a blend of a top-down business model, and a bottom-up approach to decision making, Keller Williams Realty will always separate itself from the competition. So much so, that Stanford Business school has completed two case studies on KW, one in 2007 and the other in 2011 all around their unique approach to building and creating their culture.
According to Vice Chairman Mo Anderson, the culture is “the glue that holds it all together.” In the words of the former executive, “It's very difficult to separate the culture and the systems, because the systems are written for the culture and the culture exists for the systems.”
Leading with Technology
In order to lead the industry in developing a real estate platform which buyers and sellers prefer, Keller Williams plans to invest over $1 billion in technology. By introducing real estate platforms that utilize cutting-edge technology, KW provides agents with data, consumer insights, as well as preferred platforms to build real estate businesses without boundaries.
Technology is continuing to transform the ways in which real estate professionals communicate with their clients and how buyers search for homes. The agents at Keller Williams Realty, are driving technology development groups that are on the forefront of advances and will continue to sharpen their competitive edge. In 2011, eEdge, the real estates industry's first and only complete lead-to-close agent business solution, won the Inman Innovation Award! “Keller Williams is determined to stay ahead of the curve to provide the most services and support in the industry to our entire network – especially in today’s real estate climate.” -Mark Willis, former CEO of Keller Williams Realty
Since the agents are the partners and stakeholders, Keller Williams Realty created a unique wealth building platform that rewards associates who contribute to the growth and profitability of each market center. In the United States and Canada it's called profit share; and across the world it's called, growth share.
Since profit share began in 1989, Keller Williams has shared more than half a billion dollars to it's associates. In 2015, the company had it's largest year to date, at nearly $130M shared.
