"This company promotes an agent-centric business model that focuses on cutting-edge training, profit sharing and wealth-building opportunities. The culture and business model of Keller Williams is absolutely unique within this industry. It is unequaled by any other real estate company that I've worked with in that the agent is truly important. When the agent is educated, motivated and enthusiastic about their career everyone wins. My objective is to educate, enlighten, empower, and elevate my agents to their highest potential. The focus is helping others better their business and themselves through the power of knowledge," said Melissa.
