AUSTIN, TEXAS March 1, 2022 — Keller Williams (“KW”), the world’s largest real estate technology franchise by agent count, reports Q4 ’21 and year-end results, having achieved significant growth, technology milestones, and topped franchise and corporate culture rankings.
“In the midst of a hypercompetitive market, 2021 was absolutely a record-breaking year for us,” said Carl Liebert, CEO of kwx. “With historically low inventory rates, finding a home has been really challenging in the last year.”
“And so we’re extremely pleased to report that our agents changed 1.3 million lives in 2021,” said Liebert. “We brought 1.3 million people home.”
Keller Williams is home to 173,274 agents in the United States and Canada and 14,847 agents operating outside of the United States and Canada, for a total of 188,121 agents worldwide, as of December 31, 2021.
“We track 42 measurements of production at KW and in 2021 we set all-time records in 21 of those metrics,” said Marc King, president, KW. “And, we’re very proud to report our gross commission income per agent reached $77.8 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2021, which is a 72% increase over the last decade.”
“Right now, the median agent gross income in our industry for real estate agents is $43,330,” said King. “When you’re doing the right things, everyone wins.”

“We are very proud of our continuing market share gains in the U.S. and Canada, while we declined slightly in transactions and new listings – that’s more indicative of the base effect of Q4 ’20,” said Jason Abrams, head of industry, kwx. “The COVID shutdowns in early 2020 allowed for a significant influx of pent-up housing demand to hit our agents in Q4 of 2020.”
“As a result, our ongoing market share gains can best be seen in our year-end results and by comparing our Q4 ’21 to our Q4 ’19 benchmarks,” said Abrams. “Compared to Q4 ’19, across the U.S. and Canada, our agents increased our homes sold and new listings up 21.8% and 2.2%, respectively.”
