Keller Williams Realty Tops 100,000

1-in-the-world

Personal Take:  It has been amazing to see and be part of the growth of the company.  Since joining in 2004 it has definitely been a rocket ride to the top.  The biggest accomplishment in my opinion?  Being able, as a company, to keep our culture and value system intact.

Keller Williams, the largest real estate franchise in North America by associate count, announced that as of the end of April, 2014, its worldwide associate count has broken the 100,000 mark at 100,575.

“One hundred thousand is such an important milestone for us because it signals that we are on the verge of becoming the largest real estate company in the world!” said Vice President of Growth John Davis. “Of all the numbers we track, associate count is by far the most important to our model, and we can clearly see that our growth trajectory far surpasses the industry and what any other company in our industry is doing. It’s this growth that has driven our offices to record-breaking profitability and massive productivity gains for our agents.”

During the first quarter of 2014, Keller Williams has already grown by 2.8 percent while membership in the National Association of REALTORS® has shrunk by 2.4 percent. The company’s growth has now outpaced the growth of NAR for 21 consecutive months (every month since July 2012), according to membership numbers on NAR’s Website.

In 2013, NAR as a whole grew by 5 percent. According to public filings by the other major franchises in the industry, RE/MAX grew by 4.7 percent, Century 21 by 3.5 percent and Coldwell Banker by 3.3 percent. During the same time period, Keller Williams experienced 18 percent associate growth.

“Our leadership team and our entire associate base are fired up right now,” said Keller Williams CEO Mark Willis. “Our continued growth over the last few years proves that our models, systems and people are unmatched in the industry. Our leaders are proving that if you believe in a goal and work relentlessly toward it – you can make it happen!”

Last year, Keller Williams announced that it had become the largest real estate franchise by associate count in North America, as well as its intention to grow to No. 1 in the world by associate count, followed by closed units, and then by closed sales volume.

At the end of 2013, KW also announced:

KW Honolulu Officially Opens

Young couple looking for real estate with female realtorPersonal note: I had the opportunity to come out and train the core group of agents on eEdge technology in January, 2014.  What a smart, motivated group of agents and the leadership/ownership at the office/regional level is amazing.    They will have tremendous success in helping their clients and achieving their personal/office goals.  I look forward to coming out and training again in the near future.

Keller Williams Realty is opening a full-service franchise in Honolulu this week, with Kevin Miyama, the immediate past president of the Honolulu Board of Realtors, leading a group of 140 agents he and co-leader Colette Ching have been quietly recruiting for the past eight months.

Miyama and Ching, a Hawaii native who started her career here and has spent more than 25 years in California with Coldwell Banker and Keller Williams, will open a 7,000-square- foot office at 1347 Kapiolani Blvd., on Wednesday.

“We kept it on the down low for quite some time,” Ching said. “We basically do all of our reruiting before we open our offices.”

Miyama has has spent the past two-and-a-half years with Prudential Locations, where he was a business coach. Before that, he spent nine years at Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties as an assistant area office manager.

Miyama said that his former boss, Prudential Locations CEO Bill Chee, knew about his plans to leave, but Miyama said that he did not recruit from Prudential because of a non-compete clause.

“I just respected Bill and what he had done for me, and I stayed within the confines of my non-compete clause,” Miyama said.

Keller Williams already has an office on Maui. It had a satellite office on Oahu that closed last August, Miyama said, adding the new office is the company’s first full-service franchise on Oahu.

The franchise now has 114 listings. About 35 of its agents are newly licensed, Ching said.

KW Technology

One of the greatest expenses real estate agents can face in their real estate career, is the ongoing costs of utilizing the essential technologies for effectively running a successful real estate business.   These real estate technology tools can range from online lead generation to database management to real estate transaction management.   A recent poll revealed that the average real estate associate pays approximately $315+ a month for technology tools. On the other hand, Keller Williams real estate associates pay only $15 a month for KW eEdge and $10 a month for KW eAgentC.  Get an inside look below at the breadth of KW | Technology available to KW associates versus industry standards.
