About Keller Williams
Founded in 1983, Keller Williams Realty Inc. is an international real estate company with more than 600 offices located across the United States and Canada. The company began franchising in 1991, and following years of phenomenal growth and success, became the fourth-largest U.S. residential real estate firm in North America in 2006. The company has succeeded by treating its associates as partners and shares its knowledge, policy control and company profits on a system-wide basis.
Powerful curriculum through Keller Williams University keeps our associates ahead of trends, tools and advancements in the real estate industry.
Unlike other real estate companies, Keller Williams Realty was designed to reward agents for working together, to serve our clients better.
Keller Williams Realty was founded on the principles of trust and honesty, emphasizing the importance of having the integrity to do the right thing and always putting our client's needs first.
Leading-edge technology solutions accelerate our associates' efficiency and productivity.
Structured for Success:
The interdependent business model of Keller Williams Realty supports agents and brokers working as a team to maximize personal productivity and company profits.
Most real estate companies operate on a dependent model where the broker provides leads to salespeople and then offers them a commission, or they operate on an independent model where agents receive minimal support from the broker but keep more of the commission. In contrast to these traditional models, the Keller Williams model fosters a synergistic environment where both parties succeed through teamwork, by encouraging agents and brokers to share their best practices with each other and reward associates who help the company to grow. It is these industry-changing philosophies that have fueled the recent growth of Keller Williams Realty past older, more established companies to claim a top-four spot in the real estate industry.
Keller Williams Realty Continues Growth in 2007
AUSTIN, TEXAS (February 27, 2008) -Keller Williams® Realty Inc., the fourth largest real estate company in North America, announced positive growth numbers for 2007, showing an expansion in market centers to 659 and a growth in its roster of active licensees to 79,643. CEO Mark Willis
emphasizes the significance of the company's growth given the well publicized downturn in the real estate market. "Research shows that the U.S. residential real estate market peaked in late 2005. In 2006 and 2007, the market experienced a two year decline of more than 20 percent in closed units," says Willis. Yet, during that same period, Keller Williams Realty's sales increased 8.4 percent. That means that over the last two years our company's market share has increased by 36 percent nationwide."
"Mike was a great agent who maintained a professional attitude throughout our business relationship. He was able to help sort out many of the frustrating details buyers can pose to sellers without batting an eye. Additionally his team did a fantastic job marketing my home both online and through marketing materials."
"Mike is a real estate professional. He sold my home quickly in a very slow real estate market. I appreciate Mike not only for his suggestions in making my house more marketable, but also for his knowledge and expertise in finding the laborers to get the job done quickly and at a very reasonable cost. I can highly recommend Mike Carlos without hesitation."
"Both Mike and his wife, Amber, were a great help in helping us find our house. We didn't know much of anything regarding home purchasing before contacting Mike, but he walked us through the process and found our home for us in only a short amount of time. He is very knowledgeable about all real estate aspects and was always willing to meet our schedules and needs. I highly recommend Mike and Amber and will surely give them more business in the future."
“A BIG thank you to Team Carlos for getting my house SOLD!! My home was on the market with another local real estate company for over a year. Switching to Team Carlos was the best decision I made in the entire process. I know if I hadn’t, my home would still be on the market today. To anyone who is thinking about putting a home on the market, I recommend contacting Team Carlos! Team Carlos was a pleasure to work with. They were in constant contact with me, providing weekly updates and making sure I understood everything completely. They were always 5 steps ahead of the process, and always thought outside of the box. Florida’s housing market was at an all-time low but Team Carlos’ spirit was not. They never gave up, even when it seemed we would never sell the home. Their positive outlook gave me a reason to believe everything would, in fact, be ok. Go with Team Carlos. They will get YOUR home sold too!!”
"I attempted to sell my home for 2 years in Tallahassee after moving to Atlanta and had no luck. In spite of the poor real estate market and realtors that simply weren't a good fit, Team Carlos was very aggressive, attentive and used very smart strategy to get my home SOLD within 6 months. I really appreciated their "no nonsense", straight forward approach during a very stressful time period. They have proven themselves to be extremely knowledgeable in the short sale market. Team Carlos also knows how to navigate through the very challenging process of paper shuffling and inconsistencies in the bank system. I highly recommend them!"
“Thank you very much for making the buying and selling of my lot so smooth. You are the most outstanding agent I have ever encountered. I am sure you will always be a successful agent in any real estate climate. Your professionalism, service, and friendliness speak volumes for your credibility. When our lives are so hectic, having you at the helm is a godsend. I wish you and your family many blessings”
“We tried to sell our home for about 2 years with no success. Mike Carlos called and offered to list our home and assured us he could sell it. He came to our house and explained all of our options and still we hesitated. When we finally made up our mind to move forward and sell, Mike and his team hadpotential buyers walking through immediately. We were kept in the loop through emails and phone calls. We listed the home in May and closed in August. The entire team worked together with a purpose and sold our home quickly. Thank you Team Carlos!!”
“Mike Carlos was my realtor for the 10 months I had my home listed for sale. While market conditions have been less than favorable for sellers in recent years, I felt like I had the full effort and expertise of Team Carlos in marketing my home. At every step of the way they were knowledgable,responsive and professional. While I ultimately made the decision to rent my home, I would choose to list with Mike Carlos and Team again in future without any hestitation. I would highly recommend Mike Carlos and Team Carlos to anyone needing the services of a professional realtor!”
“Mike and his team are pros. My association with them has been in the context of a short sale, an area or expertise my former realter did not possess. In fact it was my former realtor who recommended I work with Keller-Williams on this difficult/complex type of real estate transaction. Amber hasacted as go-between for me and the bank and has kept the many paperwork items required by the bank flowing on a timely basis. I have total confidence in Mike and his associates and have already made one referral to his office for a friend looking to buy land.”
“Words can't quite express how grateful I am to Mike and Amber Carlos for their help in short-selling our home. They not only found a buyer much quicker than I ever imagined, but they were more than helpful during the whole closing process. They were also very patient and understanding, answering our many questions along the way. Because of them, we were able to sell our home and avoid a nasty foreclosure proceeding. Thank God for Mike & Amber!! I recommend them highly!!”
