    Pros

    The agents are Keller Williams are a terrific, collaborative, open bunch. They care about each other's personal and professional success. The training is excellent and they have staff available to coach new and seasoned agents to improve their success level.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that there's no cushion--real estate is all commission-based. The rainmakers tend to be responsible for the majority of a market center's volume, leaving the "long tail" of less than stellar agents to eat up the tiny slice. It adds up to a profitable market center, but not necessarily the most beneficial situation for the new agent.

    Keller Williams is not that focused on the agents and definitely not on clients.

    I worked at Keller Williams

    Pros

    Recongized name, power of the brand, excellent training. profit sharing if you do a lot of recruiting.

    Cons

    No group benefits for self employed. Buddy network for promotions. Expensive to be an agent there. Costs from $20K-$30K plus office fees. Tons of extra fees. You pay for coaching. No mentoring. pressure to use "core services" which owners make money on .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more selective. be more competitve with other R.E. brands.
