Who are we?

The Keller Williams La Quinta Market Center features a state-of-the-art real estate training room, majestic office space, and friendly atmosphere that is recognizable the moment you enter. With industry-leading real estate training, generous commission splits, and an experienced leadership and support staff, Keller Williams La Quinta is a hot spot for agents looking to rapidly build and grow their real estate careers.

Who are we looking for?

For the right person, this is an opportunity, not a job! This person is a top producer and has a track record of leadership. They have risen to the top of leadership positions in every area of their business, career, and personal life. They are dynamic, attractive, and highly impressive.

They are highly assertive, passionate, people-oriented individuals who operate with high urgency. They have strong communication skills and naturally connect with others. When people who know them describe them, they point to their energy and passion as their most dominant characteristics. Their burning desire is to build the dominant real estate company in their market.

They leverage the tools of the Growth Initiative to perform the activities necessary to achieve the OP’s expectations of the standards for number of recruiting appointments, gross recruits, net recruits, and profitability, and they leverage the Career Growth Initiative tools to consult with the top 20 percent of agents to set their goals and direct them to productivity solutions.

They naturally exhibit the WI4C2TS belief system in their dealings with others. They are natural leaders who embrace succeeding through others, bottom-up leadership, and building a team. They possess a track record of relationships. They view learning as the foundation of their action plan. They have at least 2–3 years of real estate sales experience and are in the top 5 percent of their office.
