In keeping with the philosophy that agents are partners and stakeholders, Keller Williams created a distinct wealth building platform that rewards associates who contribute to a profitable market center's growth by attracting productive associates. In the United States and Canada, we do this through profit share; and across the world, through growth share.
Since inception in 1989, the Keller Williams Profit Share program has surpassed half a billion dollars in distributions to associates. In 2014 alone, KW distributed more than $98 million through profit share and growth share.
How Profit Share Works
Each month, profitable market centers split owner profits with the associates who helped grow the market center. The program is completely voluntary and available to any associate who wishes to participate.
An associate becomes eligible for profit share when a productive agent names them as a sponsor; the person who introduced them to the company.
Stakeholders earn profit share every month a market center is profitable. Last year, 98 percent of Keller Williams Market Centers were profitable for the year, a figure that far outpaces the industry standard.
Once the employee reaches their three year anniversary with Keller Williams, they are vested for life.
