Keller Williams announced that they will continue to operate unimpeded in the Chicago-area.
This news comes in the wake of a franchise owner’s recent decision to sell the assets to four of their Chicago-area offices to Coldwell Banker last week without notifying the agents operating from the locations. The agents impacted by the sell have been contacting other local Keller Williams offices in the area looking for a place to operate from.
Keller Williams has taken quick action to insure agents access to all of the company websites, email addresses and other recourses needed to serve their clients.
It is expected that Keller Williams will be able to retain many of the agents that have been affected by the sell.
“Our goal is to serve our associates at the highest level—and most importantly to ensure that their business and relationship with their clients is not impacted at all,” said Mark Willis, CEO at Keller Williams Realty. “Of course, we are thrilled by the passionate response of our associates to stay with our company,”
The regional leadership is pursuing candidates and opportunities for new franchises in the Chicago-area.
