Keller Williams Colorado Springs
A Career with Keller Williams Colorado Springs
Full Disclosure: I’ve been with Keller Williams Colorado Springs my entire real estate career since 2006, and would not consider any other real estate company.
I feel like I actually lucked into Keller Williams. I had not heard of Keller Williams Realty until I attended real estate school. One of the students in the class worked for Keller Williams as an administrative assistant and was obtaining her real estate license to become a buyer’s agent. She encouraged many of us in the class to talk with Keller Williams before making a decision on a company.
I did interview two other companies before I met with the Team Leader at Keller Williams Clients’ Choice of Northern Colorado Springs. Her introduction was “We believe in God first, family second, and business third. We know that isn’t politically correct, but we don’t give a flip.”
Wow! My family comes before the business? During the meetings with the two previous companies, my family wasn’t even asked about, let alone given any type of priority.
After spending less than an hour with the Team Leader, I knew that Keller Williams Realty had the same values I do. I felt comfortable around the office and was pleasantly surprised when other agents greeted me with a smile and a big welcome, unlike the dismissive greeting at the previous two companies. I will warn everyone, that we are a hugging company. Being a retired Navy Commander, hugging was considered “public display of affection” in the Navy and certainly not tolerated when in uniform. Well, at Keller Williams Colorado Springs, it is “standard operating procedure.”
The Culture at Keller Williams is very different than most real estate companies, and I believe it is because of the profit sharing system. There is no shortage of help within the office. Everyone is happy to provide their advice on the most difficult problems, with the Team Leader and owner available any time to provide their guidance. I do believe this is because the more successful everyone is in the office, the more profits that get shared.
In a nutshell, the Keller Williams culture is:
WIN-WIN: or no deal.
INTEGRITY: do the right thing.
CUSTOMERS: always come first.
COMMITMENT: in all things.
COMMUNICATION: seek first to understand.
CREATIVITY: ideas before results.
TEAMWORK: together everyone achieves more.
TRUST: begins with honesty.
SUCCESS: results through people.
If you walk into any Keller Williams office you will see the acronym WIC4T2S which is the first letter of each line of our culture statement. We truly believe in this Culture and it is taught to us by our founder, Gary Keller, down to the agent sitting next to you.
So, if you are considering a career in real estate, give me a call (719-964-4810) or register for additional information. I would be happy to discuss the Keller Williams difference with you. Then visit your local Keller Williams office and see for yourself.
