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.

Economic Model

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!  

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.
