Keller Williams: the largest real estate franchise by agent count in the world!!
“We’re #1 and we’ve just begun,” co-founder and Chairman Gary Keller said.
After another record-setting year of growth, productivity and profitability gains, Keller Williams announced it has become the largest real estate franchise by agent count in the world. The Austin, Texas-based company added a net gain of 17,000 associates in 2014, increasing its worldwide associate count to more than 112,000.
