Let’s take a look at the advantages of choosing a local Keller Williams Realty affiliate like us to work with over other Rhode Island real estate agencies.
Who Is Keller Williams Realty?
Keller Williams Realty was founded in 1983 by Gary Keller and Joe Williams. They began with a single office selling local residential real estate in the Austin, Texas area. After only a couple of years in business, they grew to become the largest single-office residential real estate firm in Austin.
In the early 1990s, Keller Williams expanded outside of the state of Texas, opening up its business model to franchising beginning in 1991. After that, they expanded quickly throughout the United States to approximately 940+ offices with over 180,000 associates worldwide as of May 2018. They are an Inc. 5000 company and have been recognized as one of the highest-rated real estate companies in the US.
Today, Keller Williams Realty is an American technology leader and international real estate franchise leading the way in the real estate industry with unmatched productivity-enhancing tools. They are the largest real estate franchise in the world, holding the top spot in agent count, units, and sales volume. Home to the Tech-Enabled Agent, their business model equips agents with a technological edge over the competition and the ability to offer clients everything they need to make informed real estate decisions.
As big as they have become, Keller Williams Realty has never lost sight of the fact that real estate is a local business driven by individual associates and their presence in the community. At Keller Williams, their agents’ brands always come first. Another thing that separates Keller Williams Realty from the competition is the culture and belief system that drives everything they and their local agents do.
Culture and Belief System
Keller Williams believes that who you are in business with matters. Their mission is to help their agents build careers worth having, businesses worth owning, lives worth living, experiences worth giving, and legacies worth leaving. This is the guiding principle of how they do business.
Because of this, they have become a technology company that provides the real estate platform their agents’ clients prefer. They think like a top producer, act like a trainer-consultant, and focus all of their activities on service and productivity.
Their belief system is summarized like this:
- It must be a win-win for all parties of a transaction, or there’s no deal
- Act with integrity because doing the right thing matters
- The clients always come first
- Have the utmost level of commitment to all things
- Good communication is based on seeking first to understand
- Be creative and put ideas before results
- With teamwork everyone achieves more
- Trust starts with honesty
- Equity leads to opportunities for all
- Success is defined as results through people
The Keller Williams Realty Advantage for You
At Keller Williams, the defining culture and belief systems focus on their associates’ win-win, integrity, commitment, trust, and teamwork. As a result, their best-in-class service upends the old way of buying and selling houses.
Real estate is about relationships – but when technology began to take over the industry, nourishing the quality of those relationships became more difficult. So, they turned in the direction of co-developing technology with their real estate agents, which gives precedence to the connections they’ve created with their clients.
At Keller Williams, they believe technology exists to simplify everyday life,
making room for what truly matters This led to the development of the Keller Cloud, a complete set of tools that work together to supply smarter business solutions for agents and smoother experiences for clients.
Another facet of the Keller Williams Realty difference for their clients is the world-class training and coaching they provide, which keeps the local agents at the top of their game. They support their local agents every step of the way.
Their commitment to education is unrivaled. From classroom training, and on-demand videos, to online education and award-winning coaching programs, they provide the most advanced and comprehensive learning environment in real estate for their local agents. In turn, this allows the local agents to always provide their clients with the highest level of service and expertise.
