In keeping with the philosophy that agents are partners and stakeholders, Keller Williams created a distinct wealth building platform that rewards associates who contribute to a profitable market center’s growth by attracting productive associates. In the United States and Canada, we do this through profit share; and across the world, through growth share.
How Profit Share Works
Each month, profitable market centers split owner profits with the associates who helped grow the market center. The program is completely voluntary and available to any associate who wishes to participate.
An associate becomes eligible for profit share when a productive agent names them as a sponsor; the person who introduced them to the company.
Stakeholders earn profit share every month a market center is profitable. Last year, 98 percent of Keller Williams Market Centers were profitable for the year, a figure that far outpaces the industry standard.
Once the employee reaches their three year anniversary with Keller Williams, they are vested for life and only need to pay an administrative fee of $25 annually.
How Profit Share Is Calculated
Gary Keller says profit share is a mathematical formula. “It’s not a question of ‘Does it work or not?’ If the business is profitable, profit share works.” In less than two minutes you can learn how profit share is calculated at Keller Williams.
The Pursuit of Profit Share
When you have a productive agent in your downline, each month the market center is profitable and that agent contributed to the market center’s profits, you receive an automatic deposit to your bank account. Profit Share is passive income, in other words, income that you did not have to work for to receive. Many agents use this income to travel, pay for college education for their children or grandchildren, or bank it for their retirement.
In countries outside of North America, Keller Williams offers a growth share program in which master franchise owners and Keller Williams reward associates who help the company grow by sharing a portion of the company’s revenue with those associates.
Because any Keller Williams associate can participate in either of the two plans, and both Profit Share and Growth Share are distributed across borders all over the world, the two different systems create a powerful wealth-building platform for those who help Keller Williams grow and succeed.
