I changed offices once. I kept the same company, broker, and just changed which office I worked out of. That came with a new team leader aligned with the way I wanted to pursue business and a culture that better fit my “jeans and polo” dress code. I’m not a button-down, shirt and tie sort of guy.
My split, company dollar, and cap stayed the same. That had nothing to do with the change. It was all about culture and encouragement. If I had not made that move, I likely would have quit the business. It was that critical. In 2006 I had an assistant, a good year of sales and we had no clue how bad it was about to get but there was a concern as we watched the ‘shift’ take place. I don’t need to detail what happened next. We all know what it was.
I’m here to share my office and culture with you. Starting in 2007 or so we got a team leader that set the tone for the next 5 years and it saved us as an office. That tone persists today even though we have tripled in size, gotten a new team leader, and are in a seller’s market that just seems to keep on going.
Our productivity numbers speak for themselves. Our office outsells our next 5 competitors COMBINED in the Atlanta Market. Success leaves clues and I want to show you some of the advantages our office has.
We’ve prepared a document that will show you how we deliver on the “Agent First” philosophy at KW. Some companies try but they just don’t provide anything even close to what we have at Keller Williams North Gwinnett.

Whew, that’s a list! I can’t stress enough how KW supports the agents. We really are first with the market center, the region, and even at the corporate level.
We are the only PRIVATELY-HELD, AGENT-CENTRIC, INTERDEPENDENT real estate company driven by PURPOSE & COMMUNITY, led by the Steve Jobs of the real estate industry, that is building PROPRIETARY technology to PROTECT and ELEVATE the role of the true real estate professional in an industry that is now trying to turn them into low paid functionaries!
I’ve been here for 18 years and plan to finish my career with this company and in this market center. If you want to talk about any of this, if you want to get to the truth about KW and how we support our agents, don’t listen to the scuttlebutt and rumors or that disgruntled agent (we can’t please everyone) but give me a call or schedule a time to chat.
I’ll be happy to tell you how it is from the perspective of a ‘lifer’.
Thanks for listening,
