In the first quarter of 2021, sixty agents chose to join Keller Williams Realty in Maine. Whether merging their agency into KW, newly licensed, or transferring from another agency, each agent made a business and personal decision to join Maine's #1 agency for reasons that many others share.
There may be as many reasons to join Keller Williams as there are agents who join. The recurring themes are Education, Culture of Sharing and Caring, Technology, Tools, Systems and Models, and the Agent-Centric focus of the Keller Williams business model. Three of KW Maine's newest associates share some of their reasons for affiliating.
“The systems, tools and educational opportunities we have access to at Keller Williams are of such great benefit to our buyers and sellers as well as to the agents here in our Cornish office. We’re excited about this new opportunity and the benefit of being part of a larger enterprise which allows us to retain a strong local presence in Cornish. It’s really the best of both worlds.” ~Paul Howe, former broker/owner at Cote & Howe Realty
Paul Howe brings with him over 40 years experience, and other seasoned agents who work out of the KW Cornish office made the move with Paul.
“I joined Keller Williams because I know that their extensive training program is unrivaled, and that they have countless resources to provide to agents. In addition, having the support and insight of numerous other agents at different stages in their careers is invaluable to a new agent like myself. I'm so happy to be a part of this amazing company!” ~Liz Raftice, Sales Agent, Portland, ME
A newly licensed Sales Agent, Liz immediately joined the KW Launch Coaching program, giving her access to an individual coach, group coaching, and a myriad of training opportunities which she can tap into at her convenience, along with a network of hundreds of experienced residential and commercial agents who are ready and willing to share their expertise and tools with other KW agents.
"I have been an Agent for a year now, starting with a different agency. I underestimated the challenges this job would bring and quickly realized that the more “training” I had, the better chance I would have for success. That, in a nutshell, is what brought me to Keller Williams. After doing some research and speaking to others, I made the decision to go with a company that focuses on training and giving their Agents the best chance to succeed!" ~ Richard Kipp, Portland, ME
As Richard learned, it's never too late to get a fresh start at a powerful company that focuses on the success of each and every agent.
