I originally started with a brokerage who gave me no support, but when I checked out Keller Wiliams, I immediately wanted a change. They really do give the support and training you need to become successful in the business. You get so much knowledge for the cost of a slight commission, and you'll be making money in no time.

The support, training, and entire atmosphere are phenomenal. They even prepared how everything was going to run with everything going on right now. We have weekly meetings and online question forms if we ever need anything. They are always available, and we are never alone, that's for sure.

I really like being a part of this brokerage. The fact that the office is close to where I live is a plus. They offer great support, training, and make sure you have the right tools to jump-start your career. Their brokerage is so large that there are so many opportunities for open houses and also phone time to get potential buyers.

I really like being a part of this brokerage. They have low fees, many tools, and the great support from agents and the broker. There are many trainings they provide to agents as well. They really make sure that you learn the whole selling process. I highly recommend this for new agents.

The reason I joined Keller Williams was the brand name and technology. They are extremely helpful. Unfortunately, I will be switching brokerages soon. I came to this decision because I don't think that everything promised to me was provided, like the training class and agent support.

I think they're just amazing. They have unlimited training classes available, and they have an extensive amount of free resources. The environment is also family-friendly. Everybody acts like they're all a big team, and they are always available for any kind of assistance you may need. Although I've been with them for a little while, I highly recommend this brokerage because they really have been good to my fellow agents and me.

I like the additional training they provide for new agents, it is very helpful. If you think you need additional training, I definitely recommend Keller Williams. The only con about it is that it's very pricey with all their fees.

I ❤️The character and the heart of Keller Williams. This is what captured my interest over 20 years ago! I do wish there was a way we could terminate the ability to have profit share or at least significantly reduce profit share for those who leave KW for another company. If not retroactively maybe for future agents.

I know of no other company that has the benefit of your own business but the support of being a part of a large firm. We have an on site broker, a team leader, office support and equipment, being a part of a real estate family. I wish new agents thought about "Branding". Big companies pay millions for it and we have that through KW. This is why I personally use our KW signs.

The support you get from everyone is amazing which makes you feel like you’re never alone. Everyone is always open to help you in everything. Keller Williams is also always coming up with new things for us so nothing at all that I can think of.

Keller Williams has been the best decision I’ve made. I’ve learned EVERYTHING from them and they always make sure to help you become a better agent and person

I like the culture, education, and pride in accomplishments. It's a great company. I'm proud to affiliate myself.

However, the leadership could improve and costs associated with carrying my license here are a little high. Just small nitpicks though.

I really like the training aspect they offer that will help new agents succeed. The technology they have surpasses anything that anyone else does. You will meet a lot of people that will become good friends with and help you on your journey. The culture that Keller Williams have at each market center is really good and I would say learn everything you can from everyone.

I believe some things to improve would be following up with newer agents that may have a harder time to grasp things. Also having more people to be there to answer your questions rather than ignore your text when you need help. Also have to really help the people that are Dual Career that can’t focus 100% full time on real estate and not be left out in the cold to fend for themselves.

I like how we are not in competition with our broker. I like how we are an actual family and not against each other. I like how our agents teach classes and share their knowledge. I like how we are growing. I like how our offices truly care about each of our successes! I like how KW teaches us to build our own business.

Just when I think we are spoiled with all of the cool technology, they come out with more new cool stuff! I don’t know of anywhere to improve. The support at our KW offices is a 10! I feel so lucky to be a part of our group!

The people I work with are very caring. They are interested in my success. Each office reflects the KW desire for it’s agents to find their success. My current office has team meetings twice a month. We start the meeting with prayer requests and prayer. I think this helps every agent become closer together. Prayer helps us see ourselves as family, a family that cares for each other instead of competitors in the real estate market.

KW provides excellent training. They offer CE classes regularly which help with license renewal. They work to develop vendor resources such as title companies, inspectors, mortgage companies and insurance companies. Those relationships are a great source of information. Keller Williams is a great company to work with because your success is their success. They work hard to help the agent be successful.

Keller Williams was a terrible experience. The “senior agents” seemed to be forced into communication with the rookie agents they were assigned. That led to massive amounts of automated texts and emails that basically had no content. I would suggest either improving the mentor system, or abandoning it all together. Having one senior agent forced to mentor 10-12 rookie agents is pointless.

Keller Williams is very clique oriented. I wouldn’t recommend getting too friendly with anyone outside of work. A minor disagreement can lead to the termination of your employment over things not related to work.

Keller Williams has been my brokerage for 3 years now and I love the company all around. Culture runs deep and it feels good to be a part of a company that shares the same values as me. We are now a tech company and moving in the direction we are going in, I believe that was the best move we could make! We are by agents for agents, always opportunities to put my input on things going on, there are committees, leadership, monthly meetings, etc... Training started and never stopped since day one! There’s a monthly calendar full of classes, masterminds, panels, etc most available in both person and online. There’s a sense of connectivity that I really enjoy.

Of course Keller Williams isn’t the cheapest brokerage. With all of the support and tech it makes sense but a lower monthly fee would make anyone happy I think. There’s so many more opportunities within the company I think it would be more than worth while to interview more than one brokerage but definitely have a KW or 2 on your list.

KW offers excellent training and they have a wonderful support system. They also have a great positive culture and friendly environment. I can’t think of any areas they need to improve upon although I wish the cap was lower. Keller Williams is definitely a great place to start your career. You’ll be trained better than most and have all the support you need.

I liked the training and my sponsor and a few other agents who became my friends.

However, brokerage costs could be lower. I was also not allowed a desk even when willing to pay for one, and broker availability was limited. There was also a sense of favoritism in the office. Make sure you’re comfortable with being constantly inundated with information and expectations.

They are giving you the tools and resources to be successful. They are not competing with you, but helping you and I love that environment.

Sometimes when one thing goes wrong it negatively affects a few other items. so having a wider variety of input prior to rolling out items is key. And also the feedback from the KW ideas is vitally important. some of those things that are done on a daily basis are key to improving the workload and increasing productivity on a level that would not be felt unless done on a daily basis. BASIC intro training (maybe video link directly where the item is) so that they can see exactly what to do with a pop up video when they are in need of assistance.

We do need to understand that back office part before going out and getting business. If you don't understand WHY your Admin or TC needs a certain document, then you'll think "Oh I'll just get these documents later from my clients". No, please get those documents up-front. Set the expectation early that you'll need these items as when things are done out of order, it can cause chaos for those helping and in the minds of your clients that you aren't organized.

I like the accommodated office space. I was really attracted to the beautiful office. I did appreciate the organized mailroom. The front desk was friendly. The back offices with more important persons would pass you in the hall quietly. This is a horrible display of customer service. There needs to be better communication, faster response to emails from the Broker to the sponsor, more attention to dual- career agents, more assistance for agents renewing license for first time, and encouragement for ALL agents NOT just the ones at the TOP!

Hang in there. DO NOT give up despite the lack of assistance. Utilize ALL the resources made available to agents. Take as many classes as you can and ACT on what you learn. Make everything you learn a daily ritual. Most importantly, share the knowledge and experience with others. There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.

I liked the idea of a program for extra training but have not received much help or training. The meetings are unprofessional and don't teach much. They seem to assume everyone knows what they know. They have pets or favorites. It's VERY disorganized and even when I asked for help I was ignored. There seems to be a culture of superiority and intolerance for those who are "different". I have seen some disregard for ethics in order to earn more money. Some agents are wonderful, ethical and care though.

The support system and training are great. Fill it is a good broker for new agents! Loved working with such great people. However, I do feel you pay a lot the brokerage when you can go to others and get the same tools. I feel this is the right fit for new agents but for seasoned agents you can join somewhere else and not pay in as much

My broker is the reason I stay with Keller William's. KW offers top notch education in all areas needed to make you a top producer...an agent only needs to express interest. KW is a team oriented company with agents who help other agents. Education is the reason most turn to KW. I would recommend checking with agents before making any brokerage selection and interview all brokers.

The Command platform used for transaction management is intense and not as user friendly as could be, however, staff is readily available for guidance. The platform provides for any marketing, transaction or contact data needs.

I like how agents are willing to help other agents. Most everyone will share marketing and business ideas if asked. But we need more agents in the office. Before Covid we had more agents coming in. It would be great to get back to that. Overall KW is a great place to hang your license. Great camaraderie and we are always learning and growing

Our systems online need updating. I'd also like to see lower office fees and lower split amounts. Make sure you understand how much you pay in office fees and association dues your first few years of being an agent.

I really like all the support that has been offered since I joined the KW team. The education that’s constantly offered has also been extremely helpful as a new agent. Very thankful for our broker and the rest of the KW team that continues to help others succeed.

This is a great brokerage to work with, especially coming in as a new agent. KW gives you the tools and training to help you succeed and constantly giving you support through the process.

I like the continuing education provided and unlimited support. There is a difference in attitude and atmosphere here that I notice others didn't have. I joined a different brokerage when I first received my license and spent a couple of month interviewing and engaging in "day in the life" visits with my potential sponsors. In every brokerage there was one thing that they didn't have that I saw from day one upon visiting my current brokerage. At Keller Williams, EVERYONE, has a vested interest in seeing you succeed. The masterminds and willingness to share ideas, models, tools as well as support others in the building of their businesses is what I believe makes this brokerage so successful. The key is, you have to stay engaged and do the work and you will have people beside you every step of the way.

There are always things that we can improve on but as an agent thinking about my brokerage, I can't really think of anything off the top of my head. Keller Williams always has a pulse on the trends, new information, resources regarding real estate so there is always an evolution to match the changes in the industry. With that evolution a lot of innovation that aids in resetting the standard to keep Keller Williams as the top brokerage of choice.

Something to think about when entering the world of Real Estate is you just invested a lot of time just to get your license, but it doesn't stop there. Once you decide on a brokerage to hang your license you are going to have to learn how to become a Realtor, it's not just about the transaction or money, it's about the people you serve. If you can start out in that mindset then you are on your way. Don't pay attention to the splits and caps as much as you should pay attention to your continued education and personal growth. You may not understand in now but you stand to lose a lot more overall if that is what you are most concerned about. It has been my observation that to who invest their time and efforts in service, education and personal growth are the ones that have a higher Net Sales, Gross Commission Income and usually cap so fast they really don't miss it compared to others with lower splits.

I don't like the pricing for a family reunion that prices out the new agents. It is celebrational no one should not have the opportunity to go because a price.

Love the strong culture & family environment with a lot of sharing of ideas between top agents. Profit share and teaching agents how to have multiple streams of income and investments is a plus. Learning-based which is great for new agents. Huge referral network. Gary Keller is the rebel of real estate and keeps pushing the envelope to ensure the company is the best place for agents to run a business.

I'd like to see more females in executive positions and more streamlined marketing services would be a plus.

I like the tech package, I wish dotloop would stay . Team spirit, legal support if needed , so much knowledge, classes, brand name was also nice. I think pricing is competitive and attractive overall. But they need to have people to hire to help with command , people that actually do the command for me. I wish we had assistants ready to be hired, I believe I’m missing out big by not having that ready to go.

I really liked the proximity and professional look of the Spring Cypress location. Having a front office staff to answer calls during regular business hours was also a plus.

That said, it was a little hard to get help. I know that onboarding staff’s positions change staffing frequently, I had someone in the beginning, but as a new agent, I needed help after she moved on.
Also I felt like management there didn’t really know me because they kept calling me by my license name, not my common name. Lastly, the fees were expensive. There should be a sliding scale rather than an overall monthly fee, especially during a Covid year when no one could go into the office

If you choose KW be prepared to spend money. Again having to pay fees for an office that was frequently closed during the pandemic, was not financially beneficial.

Great people, great environment, great training. The staff does great job at making you feel welcomed.

I will say, as a new agent coming into the business I spent way too much on lead generation. Id suggest a new agent stepping stone program where they help you generate or direct you to warm leads up to maybe $500k in production at a 60/40 split. This will help build up a new agents name as well as their confidence.

Other than that, I have no complaints or bad experiences with KW. I think it’s a place for more schooled agents. As a new agent research sponsorships that will allow you to shadow experienced agents to get a first hand look at the realities of being an agent. Also research sponsorships with low out of pockets expenses and better percentage splits.

Keller Williams provides a lot of training and technology which is great when you’re new! There are always other agents available to ask questions when they come up and the training is wonderful. Broker splits are high, but not surprisingly so given the education and technology available. It is a great company with Christian values and a focus on family - lots if support from all the agents in my market center.

I liked the training at KW. I liked the huge base of knowledge to draw from, and liked that it was like a career in a box. I also liked the onboard process. Try to get on a team. Make sure you are firm with who ever is giving you guidance that if you schedule a meeting you would like that person’s undivided attention for X amount of minutes otherwise it's easy to get lost.

Other tips I'd give: answer emails. Get the agents last name correct. Follow up on stand alone agents. It seemed like if you weren’t on a team you didn’t have any sort of support and you definitely were not a priority at all. I had meetings were I was trying to get help only to be interrupted about 10 times in 15 minutes that the meeting lasted. I left that meeting feeling like I needed to go to another broker ASAP!

I like the structure and feelings of stability the culture provides! I liked the feelings of belonging and the opportunity to grow as a coach. However, I left KW as Productivity Coach and went to EXP for flexibility on how I run my business, being able to offer lower splits, having only one cap fee no matter how many states I’m able to operate in, and the rev share is huge.

I will say I hated that command doesn’t work well, it’s very clunky. Office fee is too high, splits are too high, compliance requirements (mc87) are also ridiculous

I've always like the reputation KW has. The length of time the company has been in business tells me they know what they're doing. Having legal staff available to answer questions readily is nice, and the Amount of training that is available really helped me.

However, they need to reevaluate the commission structure. The way small agents are treated versus high volume producers. The amount of money the company spends on agents from one office versus another. BIG ISSUE - The company has a habit of rolling out new things before they are ready. This is seriously irritating - if something isn’t ready, don’t bother agents with it while They are trying to work and grow their businesses. The company needs to get their stuff in one sock and then roll out products/tools that work. Command was a disaster!!! Tired of wasting my time on things that are half baked… this has been happening since I became an agent seven years ago. The company is worried about being the first to come out with everything regardless of whether it works or not. Grrrr!

I love the people, the culture, and the environment at Keller Williams! First, the people in my office always greet me with a smile, I’ve never had a problem with any person in my office. Next, the Culture in my opinion is like non other, I e never been turned down, if I need some help. Finally the environment is an atmosphere I can be productive in, so many smiles and laughter spread about…… it’s calming! KW is a A+ place to be, believe in and your business and your business will believe in you!

The downside though is the transaction system. I don’t think that everybody should be on the same system when it comes to contracts and etc. IJS what works for you might not work for me we all different. Commission splits is something else that can be improved on. I get what’s trying to be accomplished , but in all fairness 30+% debited from your commission check, before you meet cap of course, Is a bit excessive compared to who actually did the work. My suggestions, because we should not present a problem without solutions. First, Agents should be paired with top performers at conception to the company, to insure transaction compliance. Secondly Commission splits, 70/30 split would not be overwhelming if your paired with top agents exceeding cap each year. Without being paired with other agents the split should be a lot less, because on top of that your paying desk fees if you never use a desk. With higher splits more realtors come to the company, the more experience, the more desk fees, the more diverse, everybody wins……. That’s my 2 cents. Im a KW fan, all great companies make improvements and they will!

I absolutely love the culture and the technology KW offers. It has been a game changer for my business. They are vested in each agents growth. They are now even offering free real estate classes to anyone who is interested in becoming a realtor. If you are considering Keller Williams take a look at different market centers. They are all uniquely different in their own way. I’ve had the privilege of being apart of 2 and they are completely different from each other.

One negative I've noticed is retention. I think it’s hard for a new agent who is just starting off to see the companies value when they are only looking at spilts verses a transaction fee based brokerage.

Even though Keller Williams as a whole is extremely unorganized, they do have great training material. Everyone I've met is always positive too which is nice.

If I had to improve one thing, it'd be new agent hire and training. New agents right out of real estate school easily get lost especially in large market centers. Unless you’re a seasoned agent most market centers are large and you’ll really have to work hard on your own. Be careful about joining a team and make sure to read the fine print when you do. Also make sure they have all their process and procedures in place in case you want to leave the team.

I love the all inclusive culture, the learning based environment, staff who are on sight and always available to support, local broker support, always striving to support agent’s business, coaching for growth and Team structures, spirit to help agents build their personal wealth. There are way too many agents who produce very little or nothing at all. They seem like dead weight and create expense to provide for them but no return on that investment. Agents don’t take advantage of profit share and it’s a gift that needs to be understood and that is real

I'm not getting the support I was told I would be getting. This is the 2nd chance I have given to Keller Williams. I left them early on and they convinced me to re-join when they had a new manager. But the promise of training and support just isn't delivered on and I'm very frustrated with that.

I really enjoy the amenities of the office and the things available in house. Being able to use things like a printer or copiers at any time is really nice and helps me get my job done.

That being said, the culture and the “KW is holier than thou” mindset is really off putting. It’s almost like a cult. My word of advice: don’t necessarily just believe the stuff that KW recruits are going to tell you about how much greater it is than everywhere else. It’s not. It’s a great place but it isn’t anything that you can’t find elsewhere.

I chose Keller Williams because they have so much to offer:
The Training is Phenomenal.
The staff is very Professional.
The Office is a place where you Love to bring clients.
The Team Leader/CEO Veronica Barefield is Awesome.
For all these reasons & more I will select this office again.

If you want to stay on top of all the changes in real estate it’s no office like KellerWilliams office, they will make sure that when you are ready to approach clients that you know what you’re doing.

I love the culture of KW and their ability to have a contagious hunger for growth. The coaching is superb and the ability to allow agents to develop a platform to lead is a rare find.

Not sure I can pinpoint an area of improvement. KW has created a standard in the business that is hard to beat.

Training is unparalleled and coaching is worth every penny and minute!

I liked the culture, as well as their great reputation compared to the other brokerages. They provided all the guidance and support at the beginning of my career as well as 4 years later. KW is a great company truly interested in providing high values to clients, agents and partners. They have a great platform that eliminated the multiple tools I was previously using. I chose KW after I visited a number of KW brokerages as well as other companies before deciding on KW Dallas Preston Rd because it felt more comfortable to me and was close to my house.

While, the training is good, some of the extra programs are costly for new agents.

What do you like about Keller Williams?
I absolutely love the people! The veteran agents are so helpful! I also appreciate the constant rotation of classes, it's spectacular and I can attend as I’m able. I like being part of a company that has a positive reputation, and KW is all about giving back to the community as well - that is big.

However, I don’t like the pressure to be at the office every time the doors are open. I really don’t like the coaching fee …. Brokers already get a cut (that’s fair) and we pay $75 a month (that’s fair), but then they take more $$ out for “coaching”! There really is no “coaching”. There are helpful classes and I get help when I need it. Most of the time I received (and still receive) help from other agents not my “coach”. When there was a “coach” it was a rah rah session and all about filling out forms for productivity tracking. It was very cookie cutter, not individualized.

The culture is incredible. The training is phenomenal. The support is immeasurable. The brand recognition is amazing . The agents are helpful and encouraging. The excitement and energy are contagious.

Spending some more time helping agents find their niche.

KW Heritage is the best brokerage around, but not for everyone. Find out if it is a good fit for you.

I like the Training, as well as building a down line . With the down line you’re able to retire and have a income., as well as leaving a inheritance for your family.

I feel franchise fee it’s too much maybe you would consider reducing that.

You won’t find a better company to work with.

I love that the KW contract hotline is open 24/7. There are also a lot of agents so it’s been easier to get open houses scheduled with listing agents in the brokerage. That being said, it should be able to provide more competitive splits like many of the smaller or medium sized brokerages. KW seems to take the most despite its size and I’m not really finding any major differences when comparing it to the others in the market.

In talking with agents at other brokerages, specifically many of the medium sized ones, they offer all of the same features as KW, but have better split ratios. A few of them also offer free business cards and the staff are easier to work with when needing technical help. Plus they don’t have a monthly office fee. I’m in my first year and I will brake my first million before the end of the year and what I have noticed mostly is that KW seems to care more about it’s self image than the agents themselves. The agents that get the most attractive attention are the more established agents who can afford all of the office fees and new ‘features’ to go with. Not to mention, I had to file a complaint on a well established agent for how he treated one of my clients because she chose a newbie over him and he couldn’t handle it maturely. I feel like my complaint wasn’t taken seriously because the established agent brings in more money than I do. I haven’t heard anything back about it and it’s been a few days.

They teach how to run a business not just play in the real estate game. Love this mentality! I had left for 5 years and one of my biggest regrets! Thankful to call KW my FAMILY AND HOME!

They are doing great! Always ahead of the curve when helping agents so nothing come to mind of improvements.

How you participate is how your business shows up!

Great education.. The win win attitude. Many good systems and a brick and mortar location.

They could improve on having so much emphasis on recruiting that it looses the value of keeping producing agents.

If you are new you need a lot of quality education and guidance. KW gives you that.

Keller Williams allows me to practice real estate at a high-level the way I like to practice. The fact that we cap is very important to me. I enjoy the atmosphere at my office. We do help each other. I’ve been in this office since 2009 and I enjoy teaching as well as mentoring other agents. Keller Williams Dallas Metro North an Dallas me to do that. I am part of the support team at our office and it’s also nice to know that the new ages have someone to reach out to when they need somebody to answer a question.

Command is horrible, I still don’t use it, and because of the rollout and the lack of clear instruction or easy access to instruction I don’t use it. I have a team and they did not start making it work for teams until recently. They never should’ve rolled it out when it did not work. To me that was an ego thing for those that developed it and those That wanted it implemented. Many agents left our office because of the crossroads of learning a new system that wasn’t working or going to another brokerage where they had a smooth polish system. Talk about a plan of failure. You asked

I am glad to see that new and experienced agents have a place in our market center. Keller Williams helps keep us in tune with the latest trends and changes in the industry.

What I like about Keller Williams Realty is All the Available training and all the vendor introduction

Some things that I think can be improved on, would be not so much pressure on trying to get other agents to join

You have to feel comfortable with the company you go with, learning everything you can and contribute when you can.

I like the flexibility. At KW they don't try and fit us all into the same mold. They find out what our strengths and weaknesses are and assist our growth.

They could work on better communication. Most communication is last minute. Major events should be planned enough in advance you could let the rest of the company know more than a week ahead of time.

We are a family. Back stabbers don't last long here. We work together to help each other excel.

I like the size of the company structure. Tools for education, networking. Having Gary Keller fight for us as agents is very rewarding and becoming for us in the industry.

They could improve on overwhelming the accounting department. Hold agents accountable for not turning in their docs on time.

Learn from those who are successful don't try to be John Wayne and figure it out on your own

I don't like anything about Keller Williams. I was a new agent and stayed there 8 months. In all that time, no one would help me get anything done. My "mentor" had 100+ mentees and never returned my calls or texts. I would constantly ask for an open house I could do and was told yes but then no one ever gave me one or invited me to join in on one with them. I was ready to give up real estate entirely but, thankfully, met an agent at another brokerage who got me signed on with them and their awesome mentor program.

They don't help new agents. Their classes are terrible in comparison to where I am now. Their mentor program is terrible. And the advanced agents only care about themselves. It's literally "dog eat dog" there.

Don't sign on with KW. You will be miserable! We have ex-KW agents joined us in droves!

The culture is for real. The training is great for newbies, especially Ignote. Command gives us a great tool to know where we are all the time and customize it for our own growth.

The recruiting platform leaves too many holes for folks to step in at the last minute and "intercept" people we have recruited and take them as their own. I have had at least 4.

Look in your own office listings first when looking for homes or properties for sale. It makes the potential for commission on both ends of the deal and that helps for there to be profit to share in our Profit Share program!

The training is excellent. Great place to start out and learn from the best. Great referral system.

Acknowledging individual agents even if they are on a team. At month end, if the office doesn’t get closing docs before they transmit they will adjust the amount the agent owes if cap or royalty started that next month and then tell them agent they now owe the office money. Even when they do get the CD and it shows it closed the previous month. This is why agents leave after they know what they are doing. There are too many options for agents to keep more of their money now. KW needs to make some changes.

Research your options.
