    I worked at Keller Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Decent training classes
    -100% commission after $2M in sales
    -"Free" coaching

    Cons

    -No leads provided. Ever.
    -$75 office fee on top of 70/30 commission split. And what does that $75 buy you? If you find out, let me know.
    -Too many agents, so you will get zero personal attention or assistance.
    -Hard to talk to the broker or coach to get important, and often time-sensitive, questions answered
    -Training classes are taught by fellow agents in the office. They will help some, but ultimately they don't want you to do well because you would just be taking clients from them. Also, you are tricked into thinking these classes are provided by your broker to help you. No. They just want to charge you $400 for them, and move on. Recruiting new agents, collecting the $75 monthly office fee, and getting them to pay $400 for basic classes, and $800 for Bold (an "accelerated" class), is the only thing they are concerned with.
    -The coaching program is a joke. You can never get the coach on the phone, they have dozens and dozens of other agents they are coaching (so good luck getting them to remember what last talked about), and they are an agent as well (so don't tell them a new top secret marketing strategy because they will probably steal it).
    -100% commission would be great, but very few achieve it given the lack of assistance they give.

    Advice to Management

    None. They make a killing squeezing money out agents selling them books, seminars, training courses, and coaching. Every agent must have a sponsor (just like mlm), that you have to declare when you come aboard. I was "encouraged" to name the broker's daughter as my sponsor as I did not know anybody at the brokerage when I started. FYI: Your sponsor gets a percentage of your commissions. All agents are also encouraged to recruit other agents. They are aggressively encouraged to do this. Again, just like MLM. Really, without having to sell any real estate at all the brokers and Gary Keller make a massive income. Conclusion: A truly great business model for the broker/owner and Keller Williams executives, but as an agent it is just terrible.
