So, what does this mean for you as a home buyer or seller? Most importantly, it means you’re working with a quality firm who values not only you as a client but their employees as well. Happy employees equate to people who love doing their job, which means you’ll get top-notch service at every turn.
Keller Williams educates and empowers its employees, meaning that you as our client will be working with knowledgeable agents who truly understand the ins and outs of the industry and can expertly guide you through your real estate transaction.
According to Forbes, happy employees are anywhere from 20-37% more productive than unhappy employees, so you’ll have an agent working even harder exceed your expectations. And, according to Recruiter.com, happy employees are more creative and that creativity can come in handy when you’re staging your home or if a buyer throws you a curveball right before closing.
