KW Agents Increased Sales Output Q1 2022

Although it may be difficult to comprehend, we are now halfway through the year. For Keller Williams agents, time flies when they are having a good time and creating businesses worth having and lives worth living. The first quarter of 2022 saw agents surpass the sales volume of the prior quarter, forge strategic alliances, and uphold the high cultural standards that the industry has come to expect from the largest real estate technology franchise in the world by agent count.

“We’re proud to report our agents have closed out another successful record-breaking quarter in sales volume,” said Carl Liebert, CEO of kwx, an integrated home experience company. “Outperforming the market, our agents increased sales volume more than 10% over Q1 ’21.”

189,644 agents work with Keller Williams worldwide as of March 31, 2022. There are 173,944 agents in the US and Canada and 15,700 agents that work outside of these two countries. Over its more than 1,100 offices, KW added 1,523 net agents in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Agents closed $108.4 billion in sales volume, up 10.5% from previous Q1.
  • Agents closed 258.4 thousand transactions in Q1 ’22.

  • Agents wrote 295.8 thousand contracts (projected closings) in Q1 ’22.

“The appreciation of home prices has resulted in agents’ commissions far outpacing the rate of inflation,” said Marc King, president, KW. “We’re continuing to lean into our world-class training, coaching and technology to ensure our agents are poised to face the headwinds of higher mortgage rates and ongoing housing supply constraints.”

“Our homes sold baseline represents our second-highest record for a Q1 across that key metric,” said Jason Abrams, head of industry, kwx. “We are overall pleased with the results of our agents amid hypercompetitive market conditions.”
