The Bohannons have been living out the Keller Williams Realty belief system and values long before they joined the NW Tampa (Fla.) market center in May of this year. After 41 fabulous years in the real estate business, the No. 1 Coldwell Banker agents in Florida, and second in the United States, only have one regret – not joining Keller Williams Realty sooner!
The husband and wife team made their mark on the real estate business as one of the first in their area to start advertising on the Internet. The Bohannons were actually quite skeptical at first, thinking the Internet would never work for real estate; but once they tried it, they never looked back. It’s that same focus on marketing and technology as well as opportunities for education, coaching, culture and wealth building that first attracted them to Keller Williams Realty. They say they are most excited about the training offered by the company right in their region.
Hard work, focus, determination and positive thinking keep the Bohannons successful, even through market shifts. “Not all hard workers will be successful, but if you have confidence in yourself and believe that success is right around the corner good things will come your way. Just focus and do the right thing,” says Annette. They demonstrate this focus every morning when their entire office participates in warm-up exercises of affirmation, as well as reciting scripts and dialogues. Then they dive right into their daily duties, taking initiative and taking action.
Getting the job done and achieving a win-win for everyone has always been their business philosophy. The Bohannons have earned their reputable name over the years because they simply do not compromise their values. Taking everything as a lesson, placing faith in those they work with and always putting the customer first are their non-negotiables, they say. Some words of wisdom from the Bohannons: “Learn as much as you can and take as many classes as you can because Keller Williams Realty teaches you to be successful. Then just believe. If you love people, then this is the business for you!”

They have truly appreciated the flood of welcoming arms and hearts as they join this new family and thank Nikki Ubaldini, regional operating principal at Florida-South, for being there for them after all these years and giving them the loving push they needed!
