    I worked at Keller Williams for less than a year

    Pros

    Training is good but repetitive and very expensive!

    Cons

    They expect you to basically do everything for the broker if you are on a team, use their signs, at least two open houses a week of theirs, man the sales trailer, etc. but then the leads they give you are so horrible. Most are 3 or more years old and don’t even have a number or email. They basically keep hiring new agents who don’t realize they are running a scam, have them do the busy work with the promise of leads then when you switch to be just part of the brokerage they will steal your contact info even though the broker is still yours.

    Advice to Management

    Watch what your ‘reliable realtor’ is doing behind your back, stealing leads, and running off every new agent. If each agent is telling you there is an issue with the same person but you don’t fix it then that becomes your fault. Get some integrity

    Pros

    The training is the best thing working for them.

    Cons

    If you are a new agent, you give a percentage of your commission to a coach who barely have the time to actually "coach" you and on top of that, you have to make an appointment with them. If you're lost on how to complete contracts, you could forget it, you'll lose a lot of deals dealing with Keller Williams Preferred Coaches. I feel this company is for seasoned Realtors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in contact with new agents, it's very easy for them to become discouraged and start looking for a new company to work with.

    I worked at Keller Williams part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Meetings provide free food weekly.

    Cons

    This office is like a revolving door. Serious lack of communication when it comes to asking questions. They avoid you! Trying to get help as a new agent is slim to none. It’s all about money. They seem to rely on their classes rather than train you or provide any kind of advice. Going to one of the agents who are successful is a threat to them as they want to be the best with no competition. When you get open houses it’s at the locations where there will be little to no traffic. I lost a deal because I wasn’t given the incorrect information when it came to looking properties.

    I worked at Keller Williams full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Senior Realtors and Management 100% support your growth as a new agent by sharing their knowledge/insight in the industry, Weekly training classes and in-house coaching. Senior onsite transaction coordinator to ensure your transactions are handled with ease. Continuous opportunity to host open houses on behalf of well established agents.

    Cons

    No cons - you can get caught up in the various in-house training's but they are mainly voluntary so balancing training and building your business as a new agent can be challenging.

    I have been working at Keller Williams for less than a year

    Pros

    Very nice office and classes are good

    Cons

    They are not as helpful as they claim to be to new agents and your actual commission after a sale is very little. You get 70% minus insurance minus the mandatory coach and kw royalties.
