Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines RISES ABOVE unethical business practices in TRUE CULTURE! (edit/delete)

Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines Iowa Realty Company


Today at Keller Williams National Convention appropriately called Family Reunion, Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines, the newest Des Moines Iowa Realty company, learned that they are indeed a part of a true family.

It seems that in March 2012, a long standing Real Estate firm, Burnett Realty, an independent, 37-agent firm founded in 2000 made the move to become Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines, the fastest growing Des Moines Iowa Realty company and immediately, the areas oldest and largest competitor, informed Burnett that they would not be paying the written and stated co-commission listed in the Multiple listing service to Keller Williams buyer agents. Now any other real estate company would simply say they would not show the listings if they were not going to be paid, but that is not the Culture of Keller Williams.

As a company whose very principals are God, Family, and business in that order, Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines, the fastest growing Des Moines Iowa Realty company decided that rather than deny the buyers access to all the homes available or hurt the sellers that listed their homes with that competitor by not showing their homes they would not be compensated to sell, they as an office made the decision to sell them anyway fully aware that other competitor is withholding the commissions pending the outcome of this lawsuit and investigations.

So once Keller Williams top officials got wind of just how this office is truly displaying the true CULTURE that is Keller Williams, a plan was put into action to make sure these extremely CULTURAL agents would soon learn what it means to be family members in Keller Williams.

2 very special ladies, Tabby Oldham from our Keller Williams Realty Legacy Partners Inc office and Tracy Coughlin, Team Leader for Keller Williams Southland Partners Kansas City came together to hatch a plan to raise $80,000 from all the Regional Offices Nationwide to bring 58 agents of the Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines, the newest Des Moines Iowa Realty company, to Family Reunion in Dallas this week. Next, their story became the highlight of our closing ceremony called Inspirational Brunch.

It was at this Inspirational Brunch that these wonderful KW family members, brothers and sisters, were introduced and their story was told. It was then that our leadership asked all 10,500 agents in attendance to dig into their pockets and help make our brothers and sisters whole. There was no hesitation. And in less than 1 minute, $107,684 and another $36,200 in pledges were raised to replace the over $100,000 in withheld commissions and the agents of Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines, the fastest growing Des Moines Iowa Realty company that made the CULTURAL and RESPONSIBLE decision to sell homes that they knew had nothing in it for them but the satisfaction of knowing they were doing right by the buyers and sellers, were completely made whole by their Keller Williams family.

This is the CULTURE that is Keller Williams. Our motto is Do the right thing no matter what. We firmly believe that by always taking the high road, good will always come to us.

So I ask you residents of Des Moines IA, which agents and company do you want to do business with?

If you are looking for a company full of agents with CULTURE that are willing to sell your home even knowing they may not get paid, but do it because it is the RIGHT THING TO DO, then you need to call Keller Williams Realty Greater Des Moines, the the fastest growing Des Moines Iowa Realty company today.

And if you are looking for a FAMILY to work with that will embrace you, train you, and set your career on a path never before dreamed, then call me today for a confidential interview.

Isn't it a shame when a Real Estate firm of any size is so afraid of change that they would go to such extremes to try to keep competition away? What they don't realize is the full power of Keller Williams culture with God on our side and a true family of 80,000 agents working together for a common purpose, there is only one outcome to this fight.
