About Keller Williams Realty

As two young real estate agents working for what was then the largest real estate company in Austin, Texas, Gary Keller and Joe Williams believed that a company should work for its employees rather than the other way around. So the two men joined forces to found Keller Williams Realty in 1983. Four years later the partners began franchising. With offices throughout the country, Keller Williams encourages agents to recruit others into the company through profit-sharing.
