What I do know is that I could not be prouder than I am at this minute to be a Keller Williams Agent. It isn't like any other company we know....for now, forget the business model and what it offers your clients, your career and customers....the company....and the agents put their hearts, their mind, energy and resources of many kinds....wherever it is most needed. Last February at Keller's annual meeting...Family Reunion....the meeting ended with a breakfast where the recipients of KW Cares funds were introduced....and applauded and recognized for the courage and bravery they exhibited in the challenges that faced each of them. There were no dry eyes.....or less than giving hearts.....as we heard Mo Anderson tell the stories.....and had the honor of being introduced to these more than survivors....heroes and heroines in their own situations.
KW Cares is a national fund....that we as agents can choose to give to whenever we wish....many of us have a deduction taken from each commission check that goes to KW Cares. KW Cares is best explained on their website:
KW Cares is a 501(c) (3) public charity created to support Keller Williams Realty associates and their families with hardship as a result of a sudden
emergency. Hardship is defined as a difficult circumstance that a person or family cannot handle without outside help.
The charity is the heart of Keller Williams Realty culture in action – finding and serving the higher purpose of business through charitable giving in the Market Centers and communities where Keller Williams associates live and work.
Last year alone, KW agents through KW Cares donated over $2.25 million to agents and their families who were experiencing hardships.
If you are a Keller agent and regularly give a part of each check to KW Cares....we applaud you ....If you do not...please consider it....If you give and can give a little more...please do it now when people in Colorado need your help. We know that Colorado will follow the footsteps of our brave and wonderful agents last year in Joplin in the aftermath of the tornado.
It is likely that you are near a KW office....we welcome your visit...we know your generous spirits and giving hearts....come and visit....help us give a hand up to the people of Colorado with a tax deductible donation to KW Cares....show your fellow Americans you DO care at a time they need it most.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and generousity.
