Mo Anderson Delivers $107,040 Gift to KW Des Moines Associates

DES MOINES, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Mo Anderson, Vice Chairman of the Board of Keller Williams Realty, Inc., the largest real estate franchise in agent count in the United States, visited the Greater Des Moines market center on Friday, March 22nd, to deliver a gift of $107,040 to agents who have been denied commissions for helping their clients buy homes listed by a local competitor.

The Keller Williams Greater Des Moines market center opened in March 2012 with 23 agents. Since that time, its largest local competitor has paid Keller Williams associates only $1 in commissions on each of the listings the competitor controls. Driven by Keller Williams Realty’s belief in doing the right thing, the Greater Des Moines associates have continued to put their clients first and sell the competitors’ listings despite earning only $1. To date, the associates in Des Moines have been denied more than $100,000 in rightfully earned commissions.

Last month, during Family Reunion in Dallas, Anderson brought several Greater Des Moines associates on stage to honor their commitment to serving the Des Moines community and challenged the Keller Williams family to support their fellow agents.

“We are committed to making our Greater Des Moines family whole again,” Anderson announced from the stage. “And we are going to continue to help them until these business practices end.”

The response was overwhelming. Within minutes, fellow associates wrote checks and stuffed envelopes, more than covering the over $100,000 in commissions denied to associates to date.

During her time at the Des Moines market center, Anderson met with the agents, and delivered the first gift from the newly established KW Family Fund.

“The support of our Keller Williams family is a powerful statement of who we are. What an honor it is to be in business with a real estate organization who stands united, supports each other and is unwavering in their commitment to do the right thing always,” said Brian Wentz, Team Leader, KWDSM.

    We’ve leveled the playing field out because of the goodness of 80,000 hearts! And we’ve made a statement to the industry that “no where, no how, are Keller Williams agents and Market Centers going to be disadvantaged by unfair competition”
