Cold calls required.
Licensed Broker (Current Employee) –  Bellingham, WA16 July 2018
Expect to make hundreds of scripted cold calls. If you are comfortable with that then you might like the culture there. Also you will have to work for a very long time before you are paid.

Just Promises
Director of Comm (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON15 December 2018
Promised the moon and how great it is to work for Keller Williams but never came through with what they promised. I was overworked and they did not care. It was mandatory to attend all social functions 2 times a month on your own time without pay. There was a lot of other employees employed with no experience.

Unusual real estate organization focused on work/life balance, providing excellent service and ensuring time is made to give back to your community. A true understanding of the real estate world and how it ties into the people who live in it. This is what makes this company the number one real estate organization in the world.

A great place to jump start your real estate career with a vast array of training and low desk fees.
Licensed Real Estate Professional (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON28 May 2018
Real estate training can not be matched and is included as part of your brokerage fees for the most part. Management and communication of training sessions and office events has improved over time. Management is always available for questions and assistance. Support staff is amazing!

Technology and recruiting. My two fav things.
Technology and recruiting (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON13 October 2018
It’s a great place to grow. Not just local, but the reach is coast to coast. It’s a great place if you can get in and start training agents. It’s the launch pad for many coaches and technology companies.
Pros
Everything
Cons
None. They exist at all companies... so it’s how you look at them that matters.

Productive but terrible employees
Director of Communications (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON21 May 2018
The employees and management staff were unbearably awful. Never responded to emergency and important calls/emails. Never put their staff first whenever their was a concern. Forgot some of my paycheques and cut me almost $100 short every pay period. Ridiculous and would never work there again.

Phenomenal company for agents, lacking for office staff
Market Center Administrator (Current Employee) –  Ontario5 March 2018
The job could be really fun but is dependent on brokerage management and one office to the next is like night and day. A lot is expected of office staff

Great leadership, best training, excellent support. Management has a open door policy, very supportive an helpful at all times.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON15 July 2016
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.
Pros
The best training program in the world
Cons
You are an independent contractor and have to fend for yourself

Its all market driven...
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 February 2018
You're an independent contractor so you control things
Hours are very irregular
High potential financial rewards if you put in the work
Extremely market driven so if the market goes soft that has a greater impact on you.
You make the job what it is.
Pros
Great Training
Cons
Really irregular hours

Unrivalled Culture
Real Estate Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 April 2017
When you think of a real estate brokerage there are a lot of things that come to mind. A culture of sharing, encouragement, and equality isn't usually on that list.
At Keller Williams, from the moment you walk in the door, you are welcomed into the family and immediately thrust into a network of supportive people who have a direct interest in your success.
Whether you are looking at the brokerage as a realtor, staff member, or part of the leadership team, there is something incredibly unique about being included from day 1.
Keller Williams isn't better than any other brokerage but it sure is different!

An excellent starting point
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON20 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.
Pros
Excellent training
Cons
Commission split structure
