Keller Williams seeking business owners to grow network

Keller Williams (KW) UK chief executive Ben Taylor has announced a “significant expansion plan” for the UK network but has said the goal should be to have business owners rather than just self-employed agents.

Returning from a meeting in Berlin with other KW European leaders, Taylor has announced plans to grow the KWUK business and develop the UK operations substantially.

He said: “One of the largest and most successful estate agencies in Berlin, with more than 600 property listings and a turnover in excess of €3m, has now joined KW and will continue running as an independent estate agency business powered by KW whilst also opening and operating a market centre that will provide opportunities for agents to run their own businesses.


“The owner will be using KW to grow the existing business alongside developing the new hub for independent KW agents. When recruiting, the opportunity will exist to join the agency business or for an agent to set up their own business with the support of the market centre.”

KWUK have already successfully started developing this approach in the UK with Lion Estates in Milton Keynes, where Dominic Marcel operates a £1m plus agency and is now running a centre with the support of an existing KWUK market centre.

Taylor added: “The growth in numbers of individual ‘self-employed’ agents in the UK is set to continue but the goal for individuals shouldn’t be to be ‘self-employed’ per se. 
“It should be to become business owners. 

“This is where, I believe, our customer- centric, relationship-focused approach, which delivers for consumers, is the perfect environment for all top-quality, motivated people to thrive. 

“The opportunity for those that already have estate agency businesses to combine and align their success with ours in order to grow is, I believe, another step forward that will be perfect for many.”
