Keller Williams ALC | Built For Agents By Agents
The Keller Williams ALC or Agent Leadership Council is made up of the top 20% of agents in each office. This dynamic ‘board of directors’ is actively involved in the leadership decisions that make the office more productive and profitable. Their roles are to inspire, motivate, participate and listen. By having input from these associates, each office can tailor their strategies to thrive in all stages of the market.
Keller Williams ALC Meetings – What Happens?
Meetings take place monthly and all agents in the office are encouraged to attend to offer their advice and/or suggestions. The following criteria is discussed at each meeting:
- Develop policies and guidelines for the office (market center)
- Associates discuss concerns they may have regarding how business is being handled
- Set standards in the market center
- Resolve any problems that have arisen
- Mastermind strategies to support and grow the current office business plan
- Be protectors of the company culture
Another role of the agent leadership council is to be of assistance to associates in the office. New agents have lots of questions and who better to answer them than the agents who have been there and know how to handle certain situations. Also, since these ALC members are active in selling real estate, they are available to be shadowed by newer agents. There’s nothing better than watching a seasoned pro generate new business.
All agents having a say in how this company is run. They are treated as business partners rather than just a number. This gives agents a true passion for making sure Keller Williams is the best place to run a real estate business.
