With Thanksgiving and the holiday season almost upon us, here are some thoughts about the real estate profession, the 2015 real estate market, and a few other reasons Keller Williams agents are thankful this year.
Living the Dream
As a real estate agent or a broker, you’re in a position to help people find the home of their dreams, and that is no small accomplishment. The work agents do has a positive ripple effect on families, neighborhoods, and local communities alike. When we sell a home, it has a life-changing effect on the buyers, sellers and everyone involved. That’s a lot to be grateful for.
Just like the holiday season, NAR has snuck up on us again. Each year thousands of realtors flock to a designated location for the biggest conference in real estate. This year, the NAR Conference and Expo is being held in sunny San Diego from November 11th -16th. Like always, the schedule looks like it’s sure to be a hit. With every topic available for educational sessions with distinguished speakers, there is a wealth of information available to all attendees.
Keller Williams is without a doubt, the most “tech-savvy” real estate brokerage in the nation, if not the world. KW agents pride themselves in being ahead of the trends and constantly in the loop for what’s next. As any good agent will tell you, they are permanently attached to their cell phone. Whether it be scheduling an open house, checking listing prices or closing a deal, that little handheld device is the bread and butter of any successful agent. Here are a few apps that will make your life 100% easier, right at the push of a button.
So you just bought a new house, and are ready to start renovating. But when you’re new to an area it might be tricky to find that perfect painter or electrician that isn’t going to overcharge you each step of the way. So when you’re looking for an unexpected source of local recommendations, look no further than your real estate agent! Every real estate agent has a list of trusted, local service professional they refer their clients to. Now, thanks to a new partnership between Keller Williams Really and HomeKeepr, agents can gift the app to their clients and help stay in contact with them long after a transaction has closed.
In early 2015 we announced that Keller Williams was the largest real estate franchise by agent count in the world. Guess what? They are still the reigning champ, but now there is even more to the story.
