Sallie Wagner Joins Keller Williams Realty St. Pete Market Center

Saint Petersburg, FL  (December 1, 2016) — Sallie Wagner, an attorney in 3 states and licensed Realtor in Florida, has joined the Keller Williams Realty St. Pete. With over 30 years of experience as an attorney specializing in the realm of real estate, Sallie has become an expert in compliance, contract law and transactions. The first law firm she worked out of had a large real estate practice and it was there that Sallie first fell in love with real estate.

When asked why she chose to work with Keller Williams she stated, “The determining factor for me personally came down to transparency. I want to be with a company that has an open-door policy when it comes to its finances and Keller Williams provides exactly that.”  

“At Keller Williams transparency with an open-books policy allows everyone to be on a level playing field,” stated Rachel Sartain, Managing Broker and Team Leader of Keller Williams Realty St. Petersburg.  “This practice also enables us to teach our Realtors to run a business through understanding a chart of accounts, Profit and Loss statements, balance sheets and to look at their return on investment for their business.”

Sharing of information, transparency and business training are all at the core of Keller Williams success and culture.  “We are ecstatic to have Sallie Wagner join us here at the St. Pete office,” continued Sartain. “Keller Williams offers its associates unparalleled career growth and lifelong learning opportunities in the real estate industry. We know that Sallie Wagner will be a great fit and that it is our customers who will truly benefit from Sallie joining us.”

In terms of how Sallie sees Keller Williams helping her grow her business, Sallie replied, “I am excited to work with local buyers and I know I can extend my reach through an international consumer base with Keller Williams Realty International.” With family ties already set place in Germany, she is excited to continue to build a clientele specifically in the Netherlands, France, and Belgium.

It is not called ‘Average Agent Camp’

“This is not Average Agent Camp. This is Mega Agent Camp!” proclaimed Gary Keller at this year’s Keller Williams Realty Mega Agent Camp in Austin, Texas.  In his cut and dry style he told the audience, “It takes no more hours in the day to be stupid as it does to be smart”. For the 12,000 participants that attended this year’s Mega Camp, the information shared will spark new practices and fuel production of some of the most highly profitable businesses in the country.

Keller Williams Mega Camp 2014

Real estate is no longer a job for retired school teachers who just want to show homes. Real estate, as a business, is probably one of the least expensive, big money return, small business opportunities that is available to almost anyone. And the “anyones” are business minded, tech-savvy, entrepreneurs who are producing sales volumes that have never been seen before. Gary said it best by stating, “It is not about being a real estate agent. It is about being a Business Agent”.

The head-turners of the industry know you must have a plan to become better. There are many great Realtors out there that are not performing to their potential. The average agent who is not striving to become better, will find themselves falling behind and blaming the market. Rich Cazneaux, from Sacramento, stated it best in the latest KW Outfront Magazine, “I loved my previous broker and the brand. I was happy but I had reached a production ceiling that I couldn’t break on my own.” Rich attended Mega Camp and heard Gary Keller tell the crowd, “You are a business owner, not a real estate agent, and that means you need to act like a business.” This made Rich look deeper into Keller Williams.

If you are a real estate agent wanting to break through your ceiling to the next level of achievement, look into the systems, tools, training and education Keller Williams has to offer.
