Many people ask us if we work on our own or with a brokerage. Basically, every real estate agent must work under a licensed broker until/unless they become a broker themselves. A broker's license allows the licensee to operate a real estate office and additional experience and education are required in order to receive a broker's license.
Brokers are responsible for the real estate activities of all salespeople licensed under them and all real estate activities are performed in the broker's name. Therefore, when you hire a real estate agent, your business relationship is officially with the brokerage that agent works with.
In our case, we are independent contractors/agents working with Keller Williams Realty Boise and our licensed broker is Erica Hill. So if you have any complaints or kudos, Erica is who you send them to! Fortunately, in our case, all feedback thus far has been positive!
Many real estate companies can offer you the same things. However, here are things ONLY Keller Williams can offer and it is the reason we chose Keller Williams as our brokerage:
Keller Williams Culture
We are the only real estate company with a written culture (WI4C2Ts) — an ethically based company culture focused on doing the right thing for the customer. This is the foundation from which we build our business.
Highly Trained Agents
Keller Williams has the best training available to agents — this ensures the sale or purchase of your home will be conducted professionally.
Keller William s Listing Service (KWLS)
This is an international web listing service that not only exposes your home to over 84,000 Keller Williams agents but also all the major internet search engines. This ensures you have maximum internet exposure.
Profit -sharing Company
Keller Williams is a profit -sharing company. Because we know that the better an individual agent does, the better we all do, this ensures we are all working together for you.
