Keller Williams Celebrates Record Setting Expansion

Source: Keller Williams Celebrates Record Setting Expansion

In early 2015 we announced that Keller Williams was the largest real estate franchise by agent count in the world. Guess what? They are still the reigning champ, but now there is even more to the story.

Since Jan. 1, 2015, KW has increased its agent base by 17%, meaning a growth of more than 125,000 associates! Monthly records were crushed in the first half of this year, with transactions up 20% to almost 400,000 units and sales volume up 26% to $100 billion (yes, with a B). Even agents earned $3 billion in gross commission income. Franchise owners faired well too with an increased profit of 37%.

In addition, the company’s profit share and growth share program that rewards associates who help the growth of the company, gave back $98 million in 2014, and has surpassed $650 million since the program’s creation.

Chris Heller, CEO of Keller Williams, explained the reasons behind the expansion best, “We’re focusing on innovation and providing top-notch real estate business training and coaching to our agents. It’s the reason we’re outpacing the market and providing more opportunities for our associates and their families.”

Clearly, it’s never been a better time to be a member of the Keller Williams family! Join now and become a real estate agent with the best brokerage in the business, the opportunity is perfectly ripe for success.

Mortgage rates drop to lowest level since June

share this

Rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages dropped to their lowest level since the end of June, amid speculation that the Fed would delay winding down its stimulus program.
“Mortgage rates slid this week as the partial government shutdown led to market speculation that the Federal Reserve will not alter its bond purchases this year,” said Frank Nothaft, vice president and chief economist at Freddie Mac. “The weak employment report for September added to this expectation.”
“The economy added just 148,000 jobs, which was below the market consensus forecast and less than the 193,000 jobs increase in August,” he added.
Rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 4.13 percent with an average point of 0.8 for the week ending Oct. 24, down from 4.28 percent last week but up from 3.41 percent a year ago, according to Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey.
Rates on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages, five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) loans and one-year Treasury-indexed ARMs also all fell.
