Keller Williams is more than a name over the door. Our company, our offices and our teams are powered by passionate associates who have a mutual interest in succeeding and changing the real estate industry. In the early days of Keller Williams, Gary Keller asked his top associates a simple question: “How can we build a company that everyone will want to join, and no one will want to leave?” Thirty-plus years later, the guiding practices and principles they agreed to have reshaped an entire industry.
An Interdependent Company Built By Agents, For Agents.
Our mission to build careers worth having, business worth owning and lives worth living means that we must work together to ensure productivity, profitability and wealth building opportunities for our associates. We understand that the purpose of business is to fund the perfect life for our associates – and to do that we focus on what we call our 25 Economic Fundamentals for running profitable, highly functioning offices. And these models work. 98 percent of Keller Williams offices were profitable in 2015.
And it doesn’t just work when the market is good. Our economic model provided a platform for KW offices to not only survive the real estate crash in the early-2000’s – they thrived.
We believe that our models and systems can provide an unprecedented economic opportunity to owners, investors and associates around the world.
Through our unique organizational model, we help our franchisees build a business that builds itself. Our proprietary recruiting program provides proven, time-tested systems for finding and selecting the greatest talent for a specific role, for efficiently directing your talented hire into productivity, and for leading your talented team member to the greatest profitability.
We provide an organizational framework for each level of the organization – from master franchise to franchise to agent teams, we have more than 30 years of best practices, job aides and resources available for you to ensure you have the right people, in the right roles, doing the right things.
Gary Keller has always said that Keller Williams is “a training and coaching company that also happens to be in the business of real estate.” That why the center of our progressive, learning-based culture is Keller Williams University, or KWU.

And that’s not all.
