Transaction Manager & Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 2 June 2014
Being able to go to work for a energetic, friendly, free spirit of a boss made the job more fun during the stressful times. My typical day would normally be following-up with the banks on loans and assisting in creating or filling out contracts for clients.
REALTOR (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 3 March 2017
This is one of the best real estate companies I worked with. The way they always have continuous training and support is amazing as well as all the other people who work there. They were all supportive and ready to help if needed.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 20 September 2016
An excellent brokerage to start with and learn the basics of the real estate profession. Learned many effective sales strategies perfected and handed down through KW's parent company in the states (KW International - KW University) - which has developed it's own in-house "university" with various week-long training classes.
At the end of the day, I did not receive any leads or business from the office - as it is expected for you to use the tools they provide you to build your own business and clientele. Ultimately it was not worth the money paid in by our team, as there are other brokerages who provide the same service for much less cost.
I recommend Keller Williams to anyone who is looking to start their career fresh in the real estate industry, it will be their decision to decide which brokerage fits their needs the most - and which will provide the best value.
Great leadership, best training, excellent support. Management has a open door policy, very supportive an helpful at all times.

The Mission Statement of Keller Williams Realty is: "Careers Worth Having, Businesses Worth Owning and Lives Worth Living". They live up to this ideal each and every day! The brokerage itself is a family owned business that ranks among the top in Canada. It is a great joy to be associated with an organization like KW Solid Rock Realty Co-workers are all helpful and supportive. I can walk into the management office whenever I have a question. Cheerful, helpful colleagues and management. The most difficult challenge I've experience is lead generation. If you want to have a pizza, you go to a pizza restaurant or order one and it is delivered to you. But if someone wants to buy a home or sell their home, they do not come to my office. I have to find those people that want to buy, sell or invest and this has been my greatest challenge. Quite unlike the pharmaceutical business where you have a list of doctors, their contact information and history of previous contacts.
The best training program in the world
You are an independent contractor and have to fend for yourself
Sole Proprietor/Realtor (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 28 January 2016
Having worked for 2 seperate real estate companies I've found that Keller Williams has much to offer a realtor who's starting out and growing their business. They have plenty of training and resources available.
