Ten Reasons I Love Being a Real Estate Agent – Reason #8 – Culture
Keller Williams Realty is a very culture rich organization. It is my understanding that this is the case with many of the real estate brokerages today. Real Estate agents, by default, are people persons. Our culture is a direct result of us loving people, which considering our agency relationships with our brokers, is no easy thing. For those who are not aware, we are not actually employees of the brokerage from which we store our hats. In fact, according to the IRS, we are subcontractors of the broker. This means that brokers cannot do things like require attendance to staff meetings. Agents run their own business and sign a contract to represent the broker in real estate transactions. We are not required to be part of the brokerage culture. Yet, at Keller Williams, we have one like I have not had at organizations where I was a paid employee. We make it work and have a blast doing it.
