The Success of a Real Estate Firm Depends on the Success of its Agents
All good real estate firms have well-run business offices, solid training programs and experienced agents. What distinguishes an outstanding firm from a good one is the quality of the realtors. Potential clients frequently choose agents based on word-of-mouth. After asking friends, coworkers and neighbors about agents, they choose one based on the agent’s reputation and track record. Therefore, a successful real estate firm is one that is home to highly skilled, motivated and experienced agents. At Keller Williams®, real estate agents are valuable not only for the properties they sell, but also for their client base. They generate future business with the long-standing relationships they create and sustain over time.
Design Training to Meet the Needs of the Agent and the Company
Most training programs teach agents the mechanics of the real estate business. While firm managers want well-trained agents, they also fear that agents will leave if they gain too many valuable skills. This fear leads to mediocrity and dissatisfied agents. Technology, social media and a struggling economy have all affected the real estate industry and many companies’ training programs have not kept pace with these changes.
At Keller Williams®, we view training as an investment in the company. Highly trained and proficient real estate professionals are valuable assets to our company and we provide the infrastructure so that they can become successful within the company instead of having to go elsewhere. Now, more than ever, training is essential for our agents to remain on the cutting edge.
Success Comes to Companies that Empower and Encourage Agents and Strive for a Winning Team
To be successful, agents need to work with a firm that puts their success first. If they work for a firm that puts limits on their advancement, they won’t reach their full potential. Keller Williams® is built on the success of motivated and committed real estate agents. With our Agent Leadership Council, we encourage everyone to actively participate in the company and we’ve created a structure where this can take place.
Teamwork Helps Everyone Achieve Their Career Goals
In traditional real estate companies, realtors work in a group, but they don’t work as a team. In a firm filled with high achievers who have a strong desire to succeed, the potential for unhealthy competitiveness is always present. At Keller Williams®, we welcome agents with energy, drive, and the will to succeed. We also want agents who understand that the success of one depends on the success of many. The combined strengths, mutual support and shared knowledge of a team will put everyone over the top. For us, TEAM means Together Everyone Achieves More. Because of our teamwork, we all are successful. We measure this with more listings, closings and earnings, as well as the satisfaction of a job well done.
Open Doors and Open Books Equal Incredible Success
At Keller WilliamsÂ®, our business is your business. We believe in transparency. We have nothing to hide from our associates. The better educated our associates are in the business of managing real estate, the more we all gain. Our agents bring substantial experience to the business and we all benefit from their contributions.
Financial Planning Tools are Part of a Real Estate Career with Keller Williams®
Successful agents know how to run their business and actively map out their future. To achieve and sustain long-term financial success, they need to understand financial planning and wealth-building strategies. At Keller Williams® we take our responsibility seriously to provide you with the knowledge and tools to build and manage your financial portfolio wisely. Since agents are active participants of our company, their financial success reflects and impacts our financial success.
Successful Real Estate Agents Share in the Financial Profits of the Company
Keller Williams® has designed a creative unique profit-sharing system. Our bottom line is dependent on the achievements of successful real estate agents, so we believe that everyone should benefit from the profits. It’s possible to be a “100% real estate agent” at Keller Williams®. Simply put, your earnings can exceed your commissions. That fact alone makes our career compensation program the best one out there.
Warning: Exposure to the Keller Williams® Business Model may be Dangerous to the Status quo
Our way of doing business is quite different from that of other real estate companies. We are aware of the vast changes taking place within the real estate business and recognize the urgency and necessity to reinvent the way real estate companies are run. While other companies are struggling to maintain the status quo, Keller Williams® is embracing change and growing rapidly.
We place great value on agents who continuously work at improving their base of knowledge and their skill sets. Our role is to empower agents and remove obstacles to their success. There has never been a better time to ramp up your career and join forces with Keller Williams®.
