Keller Williams Realty International Launches KW Commercial in Tampa Bay
Keller Williams Realty, the fastest growing real estate company in North America, launches a new commercial division in Tampa Bay. KW Commercial Tampa Bay provides their agents access to an international network, and leverages their strength in training and technology.
Tampa, FL - November 30, 2012 - (PR.com) - Keller Williams Realty, the fastest growing real estate company in North America, is racing to launch a new commercial division in Tampa Bay. KW Commercial is poised to attract forward-thinking, innovative agents looking to grow their commercial business. Keller Williams International is causing a shift in the commercial industry nationwide and has their sights set squarely on Tampa Bay.
Kw Commercial Tampa Bay is launching at a time when the local commercial market is recovering quickly and opportunities are resurfacing. For innovative companies like Keller Williams, keeping focus on technology and training and having a national platform is the key to success. Kw residential agents are able to access an international network which enables them to also service their existing customer’s commercial needs by connecting them to the right Kw Commercial agent anywhere in North America.
Keller Williams is not a new name to Tampa Bay. The Keller Williams residential group started over 10 years ago and has since become the #1 residential real estate company in Tampa Bay, based on capturing more inventory and selling more homes than any other real estate company within the past in 2011 and 2012. The primary role of Kw International is to develop better systems, tools and models, for their associates to apply, complete and win in their local markets. The focus Kw places on training and creating better systems attributes to the tremendous success the residential agents are experiencing. Now, Kw is bringing the same insights and tools to the commercial brokerage industry.
Kevin Chadwick, a native to Tampa Bay with 30 years of real estate experience who owns and operates several Keller Williams residential offices, is teaming up with Jon Wittner, a 3rd generation native of Tampa with 25 years of commercial real estate experience, to launch this new concept.
Unlike most traditional real estate brokerages, Keller Williams focuses on developing their agents brand and business and not the company brand. “We believe that the real estate business is a local business driven by our associates relationships and good will in the community, and not by a national brand. When you focus on the success of the people you’re in business with and help them accomplish what’s important to them, you create an environment that everyone wants to be part of and everyone achieves more. This new agent centric approach to real estate is foreign in the traditional commercial brokerage and Kw is betting big that it will have the same huge appeal and success as its residential counterpart,” states Chadwick.
The growth occurring in Keller Williams Commercial has positioned them as the fastest growing commercial division in North America. KW Commercial has quickly grown to 1150 associates in North America in just over four years and covers all of the top 50 Metropolitan Markets (MSAs). One of Keller Williams’s primary focuses is training and consulting, and KW recognizes how much it benefits agents to have consistent, relevant training. KW Commercial is facilitating this now through a partnership and alignment with CCIM International. KW Commercial will host a series of local training classes enabling Commercial Certification. “This is an exciting time to be in Tampa Bay commercial real estate, and for KW Commercial as we focus on finalizing the best commercial team in our area. We are attracting commercial specialists who will partner to help us create a 21st century brokerage with the best platform, training and tools in the business, and this bolted to Keller Williams International for maximum connectivity and leverage," stated Wittner.
