A global real estate franchise, Keller Williams Realty, Inc. has more than 1,000 locations and 180,000 associates throughout the United States, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Keller Williams is the world’s most prominent real estate franchise by agent count. Founded in 1983, the company has evolved tremendously since its inception. It continues to build an agent-centric, education-based, and technology-driven culture that rewards colleagues as shareholders.
As of 2015, Keller Williams has transformed itself into a digital firm. Their developers are constantly improving a platform that agents’ buyers and sellers prefer. Agents are rewarded for their contributions to its success via a culture that values technology, education, and training. They were once again crowned the world’s best training organization by Training Magazine in 2017. As co-founder and chairman Gary Keller often puts it: “a training and coaching organization that just happens to be in the real estate business.”
When it comes to Keller Williams, the company’s goal is simple. They want to assist real estate agents in doing the jobs they love. They also want to help them build companies they’ll be proud of and lives they’ll be proud of. The company’s expansion is fueled by a revolutionary profit-sharing scheme that turns all employees into shareholders. One of the organization’s aims is to establish jobs worth having and enterprises with a long-term impact.
