KW & MAPS COACHING
MAPS Coaching is a key concept in Keller Williams Realty and a cornerstone in our cultural foundation. As the largest real estate franchise in the U.S., KW continues to grow worldwide. We believe that this growth is, in part, due to MAPS Coaching and all that it offers our agents. In fact, we are proud to say that the program is gaining ample recognition through external sources such as the Stevie Award for Sales Training & Coaching Program of the Year and was nominated for the PRISM Award for excellence in coaching.
WHAT IS MAPS COACHING
MAPS Coaching offers real estate agents the opportunity to learn and grow their business through education and coaching. As a business owner, it is the chance to work with, speak to, and be mentored by other successful agents who have experience in the issues that we struggle with in our day-to-day business.
As an agent, there is a wide variety of opportunity from which to choose. Agents...
Buying or selling a home, whom do you choose to help? There are plenty of local real estate agents in the Austin area and depending on the firm they represent, each agent is trained differently. Even agents within the same firm have their own methods of serving clients which leads us to the question, “does an agent’s brokerage company matter?”

20 Years in the Making
When Gene and I began our real estate career over 20 years ago, we had a plethora of real estate firms in which to partner. We did our research to determine whose business philosophy closely matched our own guiding principles. We interviewed multiple companies, read many contracts and in the end, the answer was right in our...
Reflecting on my real estate career, I realize how the professional decisions made at the beginning of my career have affected my life twenty-five years later. Starting a business is a leap of faith. It is not always knowing what or how you are going to achieve your dreams but putting yourself on a path to do so on a daily basis. It is being vulnerable enough to put yourself in new situations – some of which are successes and many are failures - and learning from both to become a better agent. Continually educating yourself and empowering those around you to do the same is key to longevity in this industry.
Our rapid business growth is successful, in part, due to the Keller Williams organization. KW gives its agents the tools needed to build on your aspirations...
Certain people are impactful, game-changers if you will. They speak and you listen. They educate, you absorb. That describes Gary Keller, business mentor, trusted advisor and over the years, friend.
Gary runs a “mega” company that is continually expanding nationally and internationally, yet he still makes time to meet with individual agents on a regular basis. Out of 100,000 Keller Williams agents, 100 are chosen to roundtable with Gary. Over the past several years, I have been humbled to be a part of these “Mastermind” meetings. Imminently, after each meeting, I walk away feeling inspired, challenged and motivated to “do more.” Gary has that impact on people.
He is a life-long student who constantly studies the economy, analyzes...
