What led Tushar Vakhariya to Keller Williams is a common refrain expressed by many other agents on the move: He wanted to join a company that could help sustain his business’s success. A top-performing owner in a Birmingham RE/MAX office, Vakhariya had earned a Lifetime Achievement Award, consecutive Diamond Award Club recognitions and acknowledgment for being the No. 1 associate in Michigan for three consecutive years. In 2016 alone, Vakhariya secured $45 million in sales. But eventually, he realized that his rapid growth needed additional support, particularly in the areas of innovation and technology.
Vakhariya was familiar with several Keller Williams agents in his area, and their work ethic, professionalism, and enthusiasm piqued his interest in their shared brokerage. So, in March 2017, Vakhariya made the move to Keller Williams.
“I knew that a change was needed,” says Vakhariya. “Within my first month, I attended workshops that discussed the importance of social media and time management. Despite my years in real estate, I was pleased to learn of new ways to improve my business. I have also been impressed with the staff and the beautiful office.”
During what Vakhariya says has been a smooth transition, he has marveled as the company’s team approach creates an environment where his business can thrive – and his clients have stayed with him. “In fact,” he says, “I have more people reaching out to me.”
