AUSTIN, TEXAS November 3, 2022 — Keller Williams (KW), the world’s largest real estate franchise by agent count, reports YTD ’22 results, having achieved significant worldwide growth and topped corporate culture rankings.
“As we face increasing macroeconomic headwinds, we are preparing for what we expect to be a slower growth period,” said Sajag Patel, chief operating officer, KW. “Yet, our value proposition in training and coaching is specifically geared to enable our agents to take more market share during economic shifts.”
“To embrace the market of the moment in Q3 ’22, we purposely launched four new business communities as agents are wanting a greater sense of connection, empowerment, and impact,” said Patel. “Developed in partnership with agents, communities are one more way we’re enabling entrepreneurs to thrive in this fast-shifting market.”

“While we are less than pleased to report our sales volume is down by a low single digit percentage year to date, there’s immense opportunity in this market for our agents,” said Marc King, president, KW. “And, we are leaning into our powerful culture, training and technology to enable our agents to map a growth trajectory for their businesses based on the new math required by this market.”
“We have moved from a speed-based market to a skill-based market,” said King. “Lead conversion rates from months back are no longer applicable to find those motivated to transact in this market.”
Keller Williams is home to 177,377 agents in the United States and Canada and 17,076 agents operating outside of the United States and Canada, for a total of 194,453 agents worldwide, as of Sept. 30, 2022. In Q3 ’22 alone, KW added 1,711 net agents across the U.S. and worldwide regions.
