Keller Williams and The Hartley Team

Just recently The Hartley Team was told that a client of ours had never heard of Keller Williams Realty before contacting us. We were flabbergasted! So, we decided to take a bit of time to elaborate on who Keller Williams Realty is, what they are about, and why they offer our clients so much more than any other realty company, especially in Tippecanoe County.

Keller Williams Realty was established in 1983 by Gary Keller and Joe Williams. It has grown from that office into approximately 700 offices, and 80,000 associates! We have also received numerous awards! You can find the details of the awards on the Keller Williams website under their rewards or by clicking here:  Keller Williams Awards.


But here’s a short summary. In 2012, Keller Williams was ranked by J.D. Power and Associates as the Highest Overall Satisfaction For Home Sellers Among National Full Service Real Estate Firms**. Keller Williams Real Estate Agents are concerned about making sure that customers are satisfied! We were also listed as one of the top 5,000 fastest growing private companies in America, one of the Top 10 Workplaces in America by Workplace Dynamics, and in 2013 we were ranked the #1 Real Estate Agency in the United States by agent count.  

**(Keller Williams Realty received the highest numerical score among full service real estate firms for home sellers in the proprietary J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Home Buyer/Seller StudySM Study based on 2,994 total evaluations measuring five firms and measures opinions of individuals who sold a home between March 2011 and April 2012. Proprietary study results are based on experiences and perceptions of consumers surveyed March-May 2012. Your experiences may vary. Visit


All this may seem impressive, but what does that really mean for you? As mentioned above, Keller Williams is truly concerned about customer satisfaction. But we are also concerned about agent satisfaction. This means that you will be working with agents that are enjoying what they do and are excited to be helping you buy or sell a home.

Another thing that sets Keller Williams apart is the ability to utilize new technologies. Keller Williams has designed their own software solution for their agents called e-edge, consistently seeks to help agents learn the newest technologies, and even throws a yearly technology conference called Mega Camp. So, to answer the question, “Why should I work with Keller Williams?”, we would respond with, “Why work with anyone else?”
