Former Keller Williams market centre boss discusses next steps

After six years at Keller Williams, well-known industry figure, Chris Buckler is on the lookout for pastures new and exploring agency self-employed models.

Buckler ran KWUK’s London Bridge Market Centre since 2018 before its closure was announced in mysterious circumstances last month.

Self-employed models have stirred up quite a bit of interest in the UK and Buckler believes they are here to stay.


He said: “The North American models brought some really good stuff over and I think they showcased that there is another way besides online and the high street.

“UK models are going to have to work out what our value proposition is to not only attract agents but to keep them in the business once they’ve made the transition.

“That’s the key thing. It’s not just about recruiting them – it’s about hand-holding them.”

Chris discusses how to do that and much more with Angels Media chief executive Nat Daniels.

Press play in the interview below:.

  • Roger  Mellie

    I have never seen the US model work here in the UK. I've seen Remax and Century21 come and go, I am impressed that KW seems to be hanging in there.

    I worked for C21 for a while at Head Office
    Was never ever going to work

  • Chris Arnold

    The “Future" isn't the model. It's the ability to stop competing with other agencies.
    Support., Marketing and Tech will and does produce commodity agencies.
    Any agent considering self-employed needs to demonstrate character over competence to their prospective client.
    An agent doing that will succeed regardless of the model.
