In what has been a historically tough year in the real estate industry, Keller Williams International announced it’s numbers for 2010. It comes as no surprise the now #2 largest real estate brokerage in the US is thriving while other real estate firms are struggling to stay afloat. KW ended the year with 79,315 associates, 701 total market centers and increase profit sharing by 7.2% to a whopping $34.6 million given back to the associates that helped grow the company.
Thriving In The Shifting Real Estate Market
Since the market began its decline in 2005, Keller Williams International has increased agent count by 30%, increased in market center numbers by 40%, closed units by 21% and GCI (gross commission income) by 11%. CEO Mark Willis shared these results at KW’s annual Family Reunion in Anaheim, CA with more than 8,000 associates from across North America.
“Keller Williams agents have outpaced the market in every way, through productivity and profit share. As a company, we are better off now than we were before the shift–and we have our associates to thank for that. These numbers are the most important to us because they are proof that our agents are succeeding, making more money and growing their businesses. They are truly breaking through,” said Willis.
“We want to thank our associates and their unwavering commitment to the growth of their businesses and leading the way in the industry in technology,” said Mary Tennant, president and COO of Keller Williams. “Keller Williams International wouldn’t be forging ahead with such an important product like eEdge without the support of our agents and their vote!”
