From the beginning, the people of Keller Williams have made a name for themselves as industry disruptors. Relentless innovation, a remarkable culture, and shared prosperity have combined to create the most formidable sales force in real estate.
With an innovative spirit alive and well, Keller Williams is doing it again – this time, with technology. Landscape-altering tools Command and Kelle have arrived, allowing Keller Williams agents access to the largest set of industry data in the world, a robust referral network, and endless ways to optimize their dollar-productive activities. The end result? More time and attention for clients, more business for agents, or, as we like to call it at KW, a win-win!
From every angle, KW technology has upgraded and integrated the real estate tools that agents need most by helping them streamline and prioritize the activities that bolster their bottom lines. Supporting agent profitability and recapturing time to their day, our technology enables agents to produce results and enhances their ability to create top-tier client experiences.
“We will have the most robust, global, fully connected, AI-powered real estate platform that the world has ever seen. Our entire job, the whole reason we're doing this, is so that our agents can offer the personalized digital experience that consumers demand.”
- Josh Team, President, Keller Williams

All of us at Keller Williams HQ want to extend a huge THANK-YOU to all of the Keller Williams agents who have been supporting our global technology efforts by continually labbing each new release – all while serving clients, pounding the pavement, and making your business stronger; day in and day out.
Because of our agents' participation, we're rolling out game-changing real estate technology, yet still delivering the five-star experiences we're famous for. For this, we thank you.

This achievement in growth and volume is proof that our company is home to real estate’s best, and we’re growing stronger by the day.
“We've taken risks, experienced failure, and moved forward even when the path wasn't clearly defined – learning that if we were committed to thinking big, the rewards would abound.”
- Gary Keller, CEO, Keller Williams

- Roberto Serrano, Jr., KW Nicaragua
In keeping with the philosophy that agents are partners and stakeholders, we have created a distinct wealth building platform that rewards associates who contribute to a profitable market center's growth by attracting productive individuals. In the United States and Canada, we do this through profit share; and across the world, through growth share.
“I never imagined this would grow to the level it has. The real reward [of profit share] has been the huge opportunities I have been able to create for others.”
- Sue Adler, Summit, New Jersey
KW Cares is a 501(c)(3) public charity created to support our associates and their families with hardship as a result of a sudden emergency.
