Values? What's that? Part III

Real Estate Agent with Serving Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and the Fraser Valley

I have been talking about the Keller Williams Realty MVVBP if you need to catch up feel free to go back and read quickly through the other post I have done to get up to speed. 

I am an associate of KW and am not an owner (yet) I just love my company and think everyone should at least have a chance to be educated a little bit about what we have to offer. If at any time you have a questions feel free to text me right from the sidebar, follow me on twitter, or email me.

I have been talking about Values and today I will wrap this part of the MVVBP up.

We believe real estate is a local service business driven by individual real estate agents and their local image with their centers of influence and client base.

We believe who you are in business with really does matter.

We believe no transaction is worth our reputation.


These 3 statements also go hand in hand. Real Estate is driven by the agents not the company we are all independent contractors and I think this might be the first company to realize this. This is also a big reason for a lot of things that happen the way they do at a KW office.

The idea that we would rather walk away from a deal then just doing it to make the money is a huge testament to me and the people around because at the end of the day reputation is very important at least to me it is. To have a company support that is huge. 

This is all I really wanted to do was make you all aware of this if you didn't already know. If you have questions or would like more info about a KW in your area please don't hesitate to contact me.

Chris, I don't think the "circumstance" of what company you work for makes you a more ethical or value driven person.  Would you be a less ethical Realtor if you worked for another company? I'm sure Keller Williams is an excellent company, but it's really about taking the time and making the effort to build relationships. It's a simple business.

Hey Gary, you are right it has nothing to do with the company you work for as to ethics and so forth the the values that the company tries to instill is a step in the right direction. 


I am no saying that any agent that isn't with KW is not awesome. There are agents all over with all different companies that rock, there are also bad ones with all companies including KW. That's just the way it is. Not trying to say that.

I am more so talking about my experience as well as what the company stands for as a whole. Thanks for commenting.
