Fast Company, a media business whose areas of focus include technology and leadership, has named Keller Williams the #1 most innovative real estate company!
Even in an era where discount brokers, big data, and technology-focused companies aim to pull the traditional real estate agent further and further out of the equation, Gary Keller and the Keller Williams brand have found a space to respect and grow the full-service agent and augment them with technological tools for further service rather than target them for robotic replacement.
As an agent, I’m thrilled with the suite of options I have at my fingertips, and the idea that the tools are subservient to me rather than vice-versa as is the case in many modern real estate companies.
Agents, if you’re interested in joining the most innovative real estate company in the world, drop me a line!
From Fast Company:
“In February 2018, Keller Williams launched Kelle, an AI-powered virtual assistant, designed by real estate agents for real estate agents. The app gives KW agents a voice assistant that lets them quickly access neighborhood market reports, pulled from Keller’s own cloud-computing platform, which uses data from MLS and the social-networking site Nextdoor. They get an understanding of neighborhood boundaries, current listing data, and statistics on sale prices. Agents can filter by such details as square footage and when a home was built. The hyperlocal snapshots can also be shared with buyers and sellers. Keller made these Market Snaps widely available to its agents after incubating it in KW Labs, its innovation arm. Kelle also allows agents to manage referrals and check their progress against career goals.:
