Keller Williams announced today that it will establish a Chicago market center on the North Side to focus on residential properties. Mary Haight and Joe Zimmerman, previously with @properties, will co-lead the project.
“We are truly excited with this opportunity to build the KW presence in Chicago,” Haight said. “This is a highly successful agent-centric company, with a culture that provides proven systems, business models and training to help agents build their business and better serve client needs.”
Keller Williams currently has 10 market centers in the Chicago suburban area but none in the city of Chicago, except for a satellite facility at North and Sheffield. Expansion plans include adding three other market centers in Chicago in 2016, and four more in the Chicago metropolitan area. The KW Mid-American region currently has 15 market centers with 1,760 agents.
“The KW culture and its training and education program is a huge part of why we’re making this move,” Zimmerman said. “This is a company built by the agent, for the agent, and we want to expand this successful blueprint in the Chicago market.”
