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 (This number is growing so fast that it's probably outdated as you're reading this.)
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
The most valuable asset in the real estate business is its people. More than 30 years ago, KW made it a commitment to share its profits with its associates. Keller Williams has distributed more than $1 billion in total, and more than $174 million just in 2017 alone.
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.
