    Pros

    If you want to build a career in Real Estate, then Keller Williams is the right place for you. KW believes in training their associates no matter how big or small they want their real estate business to be. Whether you are just starting out, or you want to grow a massive team, KW has the training for you! KW is also the industry leader for technology. KW Command is the best end-to-end sales platform for real estate agents. KW technology will help you save time, money, and help you stand out to the consumer. Lastly- Keller Williams culture is the mortar that holds the value together. KW believes in win-win or no deal, everyone succeeds together, and in results thru people.

    Cons

    Leads will not get handed to you on a silver platter, KW will teach you how to fish. You can make millions or you can make nothing, it's all up to what you put into it. It's not about working harder, it's about working smarter.

    KW is not the cheapest brokerage you can pick, yet it has the most value for what you do pay. If paying the least amount of money is most important to you than this might not be the place for you. If MAKING the most amount of money possible is most important to you, then do your business a favor and talk to KW.

    Training is exceptional. You'll learn some amazing things.

    Cons

    You'll have to put the work in.

    Advice to Management

    Even though there are alot of agents that achieve and do well. I've met so many that fell by the wayside because the information is over their heads. Remember that we all started somewhere and please take the time to nurture your new agents. It's rough out here.
