For Roseburg, Ore., native Mary Gilbert, Keller Williams gave her the opportunity to grow her business in ways both visible and not. Since leaving Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices to join Keller Williams on Oct. 28, 2016, Gilbert has experienced a considerable boost in name and photo recognition. “Being able to have my personal branding on my signs has made a huge impact on my business,” she says. “Everywhere I go, I run into people that recognize me or want to list their property with me because they say they see my signs everywhere.”
As for those less tangible ways, Gilbert credits Keller Williams with eliminating limiting beliefs. “Learning from others at regional events and hearing and seeing firsthand from top producers has helped me remove the barriers I’ve placed on myself. There are no barriers, and the opportunities are unlimited.”
One now-obliterated limiting belief was the fact that the nearest Keller Williams market center was 70 miles away. “I worked for exactly one year out of the Eugene Springfield market center, and my team enjoyed our best year ever in real estate, closing the most units and volume out of our MLS area.” For 2017, that checks in at 157 closed units at just over $37 million in volume and more than $1 million in GCI.
“Learning from others and hearing and seeing firsthand from top producers has helped me remove the barriers I’ve placed on myself. There are no barriers, and the opportunities are unlimited.”
Gilbert also received a boost as a member of KW Luxury International. “It has provided me with additional marketing avenues and education to best service my clients,” she says.
“The global exposure is also a huge benefit to my clients. I am the go-to agent for luxury listings in the area. Many clients explain that they want someone that is experienced with luxury and high-end properties, so that is why they call me.”
