Meet the ALC

Meetings Monthly - Every Third Tuesday

The Keller Williams ALC or Agent Leadership Council is made up of the top 20% of agents in each office. This dynamic ‘board of directors’ is actively involved in the leadership decisions that make the office more productive and profitable. By having input from these associates, each office can tailor their strategies to thrive in all stages of the market.

Keller Williams ALC Meetings – What Happens?

Meetings take place monthly and all agents in the office are encouraged to attend to offer their advice and/or suggestions. The following criteria is discussed at each meeting:

Another role of the agent leadership council is to be of assistance to associates in the office. New agents have lots of questions and who better to answer them than the agents who have been there and know how to handle certain situations. Also, since these ALC members are active in selling real estate, they are available to be shadowed by newer agents. There’s nothing better than watching a seasoned pro generate new business. Model your business model after these associates and you too will have the same results.

All agents have a say in how this company is run. They are treated as business partners rather than just a number. This gives agents a true passion for making sure Keller Williams is the best place to run a real estate business.

Come be a part of the most innovative real estate company in the industry. You might be the next Keller Williams ALC member at your office. Contact us today to get started with the #1 real estate company in the world!
