PRLog - Feb. 23, 2013 - MCLEAN, Va. -- The Belt Team, of Keller Williams Realty’s McLean office, was named by Keller Williams Realty (KWR) as #15 on their Top Real Estate Teams list for 2012. This is a significant achievement for the team, especially in light of the fact that this week, KWR announced it is the largest real estate franchise company by agent count in the United States, with approximately 80,000 associates. In recent years, Keller Williams Realty has posted record growth numbers, surpassing RE/MAX, Century 21, and now Coldwell Banker to secure the industry's top position. The news, based on publically available information as of February 6, 2013, was announced in front of more than 10,000 Keller Williams associates & guests during the company's annual convention in Dallas, Texas.
Members of The Belt Team traveled to Dallas where they were presented with the coveted Triple Platinum Award in recognition of their 2012 production (over $75 million in home sales). In addition, Chief Operating Officer Christy Belt Grossman served as an expert panelist for two breakout sessions: “Their 80% Is Your 20%” and “Win-Win Agent Assistant Relationships”. Christy is well-known for her expertise in both social media and as an Executive & administrative specialist.

“I am thrilled that The Belt Team ranks among the elite teams in the country,” said Christy, “Our ranking affords us access not only to tools, technologies, and resources that uniquely benefit our clients, but also to some of the top minds in the industry. That’s a win-win for us and for our clients. Our mission is to change families’ lives for the better – one family at a time. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to do that 142 times last year and look forward to helping even more families this year.”

Terry Belt, CEO of The Belt Team added, “As our market turns around, it is more important than ever that buyers and sellers work with uber experienced Realtors. Market conditions are good, but still volatile. We are seeing competing contracts, low inventory, appraisal issues and financing challenges. The good news is, homes are selling and selling quickly. The better your agent is, the better you can protect your investment, whether you are a buyer or seller.”

During his standing-room-only, annual State of the Company address, CEO Mark Willis made the #1 announcement, stating, "Keller Williams associates: We are one family. We have one destiny. We share one thing... We are America's #1 real estate company by agent count!"  Willis also reported strong productivity gains by Keller Williams associates in 2012. Year over year, per-agent units increased 23 percent and closed volume was up 31 percent.

Keller Williams Realty President Mary Tennant updated attendees on the company's charitable 501(c)(3) entity, KW Cares, which in 2012 awarded $2.7 million in grants to associates and their families in need, including many affected by Hurricane Sandy.

And finally, Keller Williams Worldwide President Chris Heller announced plans to expand into two new regions: (1) Germany, Austria, and Switzerland; and (2) Turkey. The company previously announced global franchise agreements in Vietnam, Indonesia, and Southern Africa. Heller also extended a big welcome to more than 70 international guests who were visiting from 18 countries.  

The No. 1 announcement and celebration capped a remarkable year for the Austin, TX-based company and for The Belt Team:

·        Keller Williams was ranked No. 9 on America's Top 150 Workplaces – the only national real estate company on the list.
