Transaction Coordinator (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – February 10, 2017
Keller Williams mission statement is to create careers worth having, businesses worth owning, and lives worth living. The company as a whole lives up to this statement. As a Transaction Coordinator, my typical work day involves communicating with lenders, agents, attorneys, and clients regarding transaction details and due dates. I gather documentation, schedule inspections and various contract work, and stay on top of upcoming milestones for each file.
Realtor (Former Employee) – DeSoto, TX – December 20, 2016
On a typical day I answered incoming calls as well as made outbound calls to potential customers. I also would follow up with previous clients a least once a quarter. Training on a weekly basis and group meetings once a week. My co workers were supportive in helping with work load and answering questions. Each day you decided if you wanted to work in or outside of the office. The hardest part of the job was if you where working with a client for some time and for reasons out of your control the contract did not close or time or not at all. The disappointment sometimes you had to provide the news to the customers. Negotiation was a must in this line of work. Location, location, location was one of the few words that we used everyday to explain some truth to making a contract more attractive. Some of the most rewarding moments is giving the keys to a first time home buyer and seeing their families face. The memory is priceless.
Very Good Learning Eviornment for Real Estate Professionals
California Licensed Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) – Beverly Hills, CA – January 25, 2017
Keller Williams has a really good training program that benefits new real estate agents and experienced real estate agents. There is also a team atmosphere that can benefit the career of a real estate professional. There is an environment that can develop a top producing residential or commercial real estate professional.
A typical day at work consist of balancing and managing the bank accounts, paying bills, making business calls, scheduling important events, running errands, and listing properties online. I have gained great social and professional skills working for Keller Williams. I now have better knowledge of advanced programs on the computer and have a better understanding a an assistants job. Every single day i learn something new which can sometimes be challenging but also great because I'm always up for new ideas. The one thing i am looking for in a job that i do not have now is some type of benefits.
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Lee, NJ – December 17, 2016
Great people. Pro-technology and training. Lunch is brought in for staff often. Health benefits offered to staff. Poor work / life balance. Low compensation. Socio-Political hierarchy in staff & management.

Realtor (Current Employee) – Lakeland, FL – November 2, 2016
A typical day starts with self motivation. You are your own boss so. I make sure that I organize my time and make all my calls for my clients and future customers as well as set appointments for showings, and complete all necessary paperwork. Everyone in the office is very friendly and it feels like we are all a part of a team.
Closing Coordinator (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – August 8, 2016
Job requires handling all clients contract to close. I had prior knowledge of mortgage and title side of closings and enjoyed learning and handling clients on real estate transaction side. Enjoy working with multiple agents, closing agents and lenders. Enjoy making it possible for clients to make a home purchase, coordinating all ends and working through the challenges. Enjoy helping others, which includes agents, clients and all parties involved in the closing process.
Great learning opportunity with a very team oriented staff.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Porterville, CA – December 30, 2016
Here at Keller Williams i was a sales assistant to the Team Lead Agent. Each day there was something new to learn and do. We would start the day reviewing files and following up with all client calls/emails. Here i learned how to do market research and perfect my customer service skills by communicating via email and telephone to many different people. Management was obsolete for the most part, due to the agents being mostly independent, yet there were constant opportunities provided for agents to increase their knowledge about the business and technological advancements. I worked closely with many other seasoned agents, all were inviting and helpful. The hardest part of the job was tracking down documents from other agents/title companies. The most enjoyable part was the team bonding and culture that came from the experience.
Having a fun work environment while cultivating advanced communication skills.
Social Media/Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 29, 2016
I was only an intern when I was with Keller Williams, but I did enjoy my time there. I can't speak on their pay or benefits, or even the job security either, but it was overall a good experience. Everyone I dealt with was wonderful!
Keller Williams Heritage has a nice team of co-workers. However it does not offer any types of benefits. If you are one that doesn't mind staying put at your desk thru your lunch then you will work great with the office manager. Not very family oriented, regardless if its a child that sick, yourself or if you even a death in the family. My experience there was not the best however I really enjoyed my work and the other employees in the office.
Real Estate Broker (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – February 5, 2017
Mostly work from home. Love the technology that allows us to work from home. Really looking for a Broker role. I have learned a lot from my experience as a Realtor. Management at the Little Rock office has had many changes since 2006. The workplace culture is Great. The hardest part of the job is the expenses (no clear printout from office about cost of doing business) and taxes. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you are always learning, no two days are the same.
Great Culture, Great Bonus, but not so great base pay
Training and Implementation Manager KWW (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 7, 2016
Keller Williams is a great place to work, depending on what is important to you in an employer. The leadership is fantastic, and they always make you feel like an important piece of the team.
The amount of paid time off they give you is great. And depending on your boss and role, they allow you to work remotely a decent amount of the time.
On a day to day basis, the workplace is very laid back, but your actual workload can get overwhelming. This is due to the philosophy there. The company believes in saving money throughout the year, so that they can provide the employees with a nice end of year bonus. But that means being short on resources throughout the year.
Compensation is average, but only when you factor in that end of year bonus, which is not guaranteed. It seems like they can justify a lower base salary because of that. However, it makes it hard to leave - if you have already worked half the year, you would be throwing away a big chunk of cash, so you may as well stay until you get the bonus. If you plan on working here forever, then that shouldn't be much of an issue for you.
That being said, there is room for growth within the company, but you will not get substantial pay increases. If you are hired at a relatively low base, you are pretty much doomed to stay low forever - you don't get large bumps based on merit, workload, or performance. You will just get a fancy arbitrary title change, with not much else.
Laid back atmosphere, great leadership, culture, paid time off
