Keller Williams, the largest real estate franchise in North America, has 112 associates and teams on the 2014 REAL Trends/Wall Street Journal list of the top real estate professionals in America.
REAL Trends, Inc., a leading source of analysis on the real estate industry, partners with the Wall Street Journal each year to compile an industry summary of the Top 1,000 real estate agents and teams in the United States. The report categorizes the Top 250 real estate professionals by transaction sides and volume, as well as team sides and volume.
Keller Williams reinforced its reputation as the place for top teams. The company is home to 33 of the Top 250 teams by sales volume and 66 of the top teams by transactions – more than any other real estate franchise. Moreover, those teams handled 22,909 transactions and more than $3.8 billion in sales – likewise, more than any other real estate franchise.
“As an education-based, technology-driven company, we’re committed to providing our associates and teams with the tools they need to secure the leads, listings and leverage to grow their businesses,” CEO Mark Willis said. “We are honored to be in business with these exceptional leaders and congratulate them and their clients on this well-deserved recognition.”
In May, REAL Trends released its annual list of the industry’s Top 500 brokerages. Keller Williams brokerages comprised 26 percent of the list – more than any other franchise. Keller Williams also increased its representation on the REAL Trends Canadian 250, with the number of offices listed by both transactions and volume increasing 18 percent year over year.
