We would like to congratulate each and every agent at Keller Williams Realty St. Pete for closing almost half a BILLION total sales volume, $448,302,783, in 2016! This is a monumental accomplishment that has once again placed our market center as the #1 real estate office in South Pinellas County. We would like to celebrate your continuous achievements and look forward to what 2017 has in store for you!
Each and every month our Keller Williams Realty St. Pete Market Center utilizes a training tracker tool to record who is showing up to training and how this directly effects their business compared to the agents who have not been in attendance.
Within the month of January 2017, agents who attended 2 or more training compared to agents who attended 1 or less increased their production by 95%! These agents also increased their Gross Commission Income by 69% and their closed units by 50%.
As a company Keller Williams uses this training tracker to help keep agents accountable to consistent learning. Simultaneously, once the data is analyzed, KW can then communicate the results with its associates and find ways to continue improving. We want to ensure each training is valuable and result driven. It is because of tools such as the training tracker that has awarded Keller Williams as the No.1 training organization across all industries worldwide.
Finding and hiring top talent is on every business leader’s radar. And many use behavioral assessments to improve the hiring process and ensure they get the right talent in the right position. Find out how the Keller Personality Assessment (KPA) is helping leaders align talent with opportunity.
In 2016 Keller Williams introduced the Career Visioning course and the KPA, an upgrade to the previous assessment, the AVA and DISC. “The AVA allowed us to look at four dimensions of a candidate,” Leslie Vander Gheynst, KPA and Leverage Series driver, says. “The KPA allows us to look at 11 components of a candidate to give us an even more holistic view of a candidate allowing us to know the person on a deeper level.”
Step 1: Screen
Who are you looking for?
“There are two main elements to hiring top talent. The first is finding the right person and the second is placing them in the correct position,” says Vander Gheynst
Step 2: Interview
Are they right for the job?
“The process can help determine that while this person may not be the right fit for a particular role, there may be a better role for them within my business,” says Vander Gheynst.
Step 3: Get Perspective
Are they right for the team?
“With the KPA, much of the analysis is done for you which allows you and your team to spend time listening to answers,” says Schumacher.
Step 4: Commitment
Now you are ready to make an offer!
“Designed specifically for Keller Williams, the KPA looks at thinking traits that are brought into play, which is critical to successful hiring and then training,” says Offenhauser.

Keller Williams has taken the lead in the industry with real estate training courses, especially with Ignite, the comprehensive training course for KW agents. The Ignite course has a single objective: to propel both newly licensed and experienced Keller Williams real estate agents into immediate production. To achieve this goal our productivity coach, Stephanie Wilson, teaches this course through role play exercises, a weekly tracking system, and powerful real estate scripts. The goal for each ignite student is to write 3 offers within the four-week course.
With our current Ignite class coming to an end, we are excited to announce 16 agents have successfully graduated from the program! We would like to congratulate each of them for making a commitment to improving their business. By taking the fundamentals that successful agents have already put into practice, they will be at the top of the game. The Ignite real estate training courses are practical, realistic and easy to apply. Ignite builds on the skills you already possess to make lead generation second-nature. To fully grasp and comprehend all the material provided throughout the course, we strongly suggest agents take the course twice. The key to having a steady and successful real estate business involves consistent focused training.
The next Ignite course begins on Monday, February 20th. If you have not yet taken the course or would like to take advantage of the program for a second time please reach out to Stephanie Wilson to reserve your seat!
Keller Williams hopes the word “Ignite” makes you envision success, sales, profits, lead generation and a successful career. The real estate training courses you find at Keller Williams Realty are truly unparalleled to any other that is available today. Start your career with the fire that drove you to the industry in the first place, and let Ignite guide your path in the right direction.
