  1. 1. New Canadian Keller Williams Website Visit our completely re- designed Canadian homepage! It was a glorious occasion on September 23rd as Keller Williams Canada celebrated the launch of our first Market Centre in Atlantic Canada. The day started with the Dean of Keller Williams University Faculty, Dick Dillingham presenting the "24 Topics" of The Millionaire Real Estate Agent book to a packed crowd of new KW agents and their guests. Dick's personable style was ideally suited to the welcoming Maritime crowd. After the 5 hour seminar, the official Launch Party began. Over 300 people were in attendance including OP's Jeff Hooper, Glenn McQueenie, Chris Davies, Area Director Diane Mitchell and Canadian Market Centre Administrator Bonnie Stager lending support.

  2. 2. “This is Our Moment” “Keller Williams is on the verge of something really incredible!” said Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty, during the State of the Company address at this year’s Mega Camp in Austin, TX. Looking ahead to a market that is likely to be “a little shaky for the next few months,” Willis emphasized to a powerfully packed convention hall of close to 1,500 of the company’s market center and regional leadership that, “we are on the threshold of greatness with opportunities like we have never seen before.” Reflecting on North American market conditions, Willis pointed out that “Keller Williams is shining through with positive energy at a time when the rest of the market has lost energy and steam. Among the company’s key accomplishments cited: • “We profit shared more than $26 million year to date, and have surpassed $300 million in profit share since the start of Keller Williams profit share program.” • In an especially difficult market such as the US Keller Williams continues to outpace the industry, as evidenced by an 8.5 percent increase in agent count year to date, vs. a 3.5 percent drop in NAR membership. In Canada that number is even more remarkable, showing an 18% agent count increase year-to-date. “We are now in the same 10,000 increment for agent count as our next largest competitor,” Willis noted. “It’s our destiny to surpass them and to become No. 1 in the next 12 months” – a feat that will be largely fueled by those in attendance. “You are the best leadership team that exists in this market!” How Canada Ranks in the KWRI System *All numbers reflect year-to-date production as of Aug. 2010 PROFIT #11 #12 #13 #14 Gulf States N.
