Why Keller Williams?

Keller Williams Prairie Village Real Estate Agents VolunteeringKansas City has been home to one of the hottest real estate markets in the country for the past two years. Once the underdog of the local real estate community, Keller Williams has competed with other well-known names to rise to the top of the market.

As of October 2017, Keller Williams is nearly tied for first place in Kansas City in sales and agent count.  So how has this Texas transplant not only made a name for itself in this market, but also earned the opportunity to serve a majority of buyers and sellers? The list of reasons is extensive, from our culture to our customer service to our agent-centric business model, and here are just a few:

  1. Keller Williams Gives Back: More than profits, sales or agent count, the thing Keller Williams cares about most is our culture. We are so much more than a company; we are family. Not only do we pride ourselves on offering unmatched service and skill to our clients, but we care equally as much about the well-being of our agents and community. One great example of our commitment to giving back is our charity, KW Cares. Through KW Cares, Keller Williams provides financial relief to those in need, whether they are right here in our office or the hurricane victims in Texas. As Maya Angelou wisely said, “When we give cheerfully and accept gracefully, everyone is blessed.”
  2. Keller Williams Educates: One of the primary tenets of the Keller Williams philosophy is education. From Keller Williams Realty International all the way down to each individual franchise, our agents regularly participate in trainings and seminars to ensure they are the best at what they do. Buyers and sellers want to work with agents who are continually acquiring new knowledge and skills because they know they will have informed, capable representation throughout the intricate transaction process.
  3. Keller Williams Prioritizes:  Keller Williams agents, and Key Partners agents in particular, have some of the highest sales per agent records in Kansas City. That’s because our agents work incredibly hard, but not just for the sake of hitting numbers or big sales goals. We exist to build careers worth having, businesses worth owning and lives worth living; that is achieved not by putting work above all else, but by following or company values of God first, family second, and then business. By creating a culture that prioritizes the things that are most important in life, we have happier, more successful agents, which results in happy clients and successful transactions. That way, everybody wins.
