SAN FRANCISCO/ February 09, 2018 (STLRealEstate.News) –On Monday, Jan. 29, associates at Keller Williams Realty offices across the country celebrated the announcement of an enormous milestone in company history. The real estate franchise surged past industry giants like RE/MAX, Coldwell Banker, and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices to become the number one real estate franchise in the United States. The company leads all others in agent count, units closed, and closed sales volume in the United States*. In 2017, the company’s 155,000 U.S. agents closed more than 1 million units, generating more than $300 billion in sales revenue.
Locally, the San Francisco branch of Keller Williams Realty has seen significant growth as well. Over the course of 2017, the real estate brokerage opened a new state-of-the-art office, its third in the city, and saw its total agent count grow to more than 150 agents who closed over 700 units. That equates to an 80 percent increase over last year’s closed units, leading to a sales volume of $808.2 million.
“It’s so exciting to be part of the company at a time of historic success like this,” said Wendy Davis, Team Leader of Keller Williams San Francisco. “The fact that KW is now the number one real estate franchise speaks volumes about our company and shows that our financial, team building, and business coaching models are backed by true statistical facts.”
Riding the momentum of the company’s local and national growth, Keller Williams San Francisco announced today the launch of http://www.RealEstateCareersSF.com, a new website focused on informing the public about career opportunities at the brokerage. The website offers access to comprehensive information about the benefits of working with Keller Williams San Francisco for real estate agents at all levels as well as those interested in obtaining their real estate license.
Through the interactive site, visitors can explore information regarding Keller Williams’ profit share model, training and productivity coaching programs, company culture, marketing services, and the technology platforms available to Keller Williams agents. Additionally, visitors can explore a calendar of training events, scroll through agent success stories, sign up for classes to obtain a real estate license, schedule a consultation, and more.
“Keller Williams brings a lot of value to our agents and anyone interested in getting a real estate licence, but until now, there has not been a place for the public to get the full scope of what we offer on a local level,” said Jon Banasky, Marketing Director at Keller Williams San Francisco. “Our goal for our new site is to present our value and illustrate what life is like at KWSF in an engaging way.”
The new careers website will also serve as a portal for prospective students to learn about Keller Williams San Francisco’s partnership with CA Realty Training. Through the partnership, Keller Williams hosts weekly real estate license training and test prep courses led by Sales Manager, Blanca Aguirre. Prospective students can visit RealEstateCareersSF.com to sign up for a free introductory class or purchase the full curriculum.
“Lots of people are interested in getting a real estate license but they don’t know where to begin or who to talk to about it,” said Blanca Aguirre. “The programs that we offer through CA Realty Training give students a hands-on approach and the opportunity to seek advice from seasoned real estate agents–something you can’t get through the standard online training. We’re excited for this new website to help us get the word out about our programs and to get more people started on a career path in real estate.”
