BTW-JD POWERS is the one KW is using as a \"measure\" and for 2010 (2011 is not over) Century 21 and Caldwell beat them..hahahaha
HOW ABOUT SALES FIGURES???? No..that would be..wait for it...be based on SALES not JD Powers...\"satisfaction\" which if they had interviewed me and about a million others who are SICK TO DEATH OF HARASSMENT FROM KW would say otherwise.
In fact.I will write a letter to the government detailing how they harass the *** out of me with their messages as proof. That should be awesome and reporting them to the BBB for being pushy and violating my FSBO rights as a consumer...
Nice try...But some of us read...and no matter how aggressive you are...you still suck with me and most other people who do not want to deal with your company..so
BOO HOO TOO BAD SO SAD...
I would hire Century 21 before these losers...they are the most trusted and have been as long as anyone knows..because they are not a \"fly by the seat of the pants\" company.
Here in order is who I would use..IF I LISTED WHICH I WON\'T.
1. Century 21
NOBODY ELSE I TRUST WHO IS NOT AGGRESSIVE AN INSANE WHEN I HAVE DEALT WITH THEM.

Sorry to have to keep updating folks but Keller Williams CONTINUES TO PROVE MY POINT ABOUT HARASSMENT OF PEOPLE BY TROLLING MY SITE.
THEY ARE NOT NUMBER 2 IN THE MARKET. They are 3.
Also...SHUT UP AND GET OFF MY POST.
Look below to see how they harass people...as a PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT COMPLETE LOSERS THEY ARE...they have NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN TO TROLL THE INTERNET WHEN THEY SHOULD BE SELLING HOUSES.
That is okay because I am having an IP trace done to prove my case IN COURT THAT THEY NEVER STOP HARASSING ME. All of these people who posted if they are in a KW office will be added to the government complaint as proof of 5 DIFFERENT FORMS OF NONSTOP HARASSMENT.
I LOVE THAT THEY ARE TOO *** TO REALIZE THEIR VERY OFFICE IP ADDRESS AND HOME CAN BE TRACED BACK TO THEM WITH HELP FROM THE GOVERNMENT...DUH!!!!

UPDATE: To make this situation even more hilarious for KW..they cannot get business so they have OTHER OFFICES CALL YOU as if you do not realize it is part of their \"solicit the FSBO plan\" the corporate office trains their staff with..
NO REAL ESTATE AGENT WANTS FSBO TO SELL WITHOUT THEM AS IT MAKES THEM LOOK BAD..
so they harass FSBO seller\'s so they will scare them away..
NOT ME! NOT MANY OF MY FRIENDS WHO SUCCESSFULLY SELL AND HAVE SOLD HOUSE WITH FSBO!
It is called a real estate LAWYER and a LOCAL TITLE COMPANY..
All this company does is PROVE AGAIN THE REASON THEY ARE NUMBER 3 in the market! They bug people over and over instead of SELL HOUSES !!!!
WHEN my house sells..I am gonna post it here and LAUGH AT THESE LAME AGENTS WHILE THEY CONTINUE TO TROLL FOR BUSINESS.
Wait...??? Troll? Who has to troll for business when if you are GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO PEOPLE COME TO YOU!
Maybe that is why some real estate companies are number one and other companies are number 3 and down the list???? HMMMMMM
BTW my favorite strategy of new agents is this..POSE AS A FAKE BUYER AND FEIGN INTEREST IN YOUR HOUSE!!!!
We have a growing list of insane behavior from KW and all of the agents who have called us and left messages so we can send it to the government and show how they behave! AWESOME!

I listed my house by myself. I am advertising and promoting my house and am a FSBO and then the calls started. Always Keller Williams. No other real estate agency has attempted to solicit me to sell my house through them as of yet. (This should be a good indicator that other agencies respect the fact people who are selling for sale by owner have rights too as well as the fact they have a different company ethos.)
I received calls from offices from out of my area even, leaving messages on my voicemail, calling me saying "we have interested buyers in [you area] without stating what "my area" is or my name.
I am on the do not call registry. They ignore that. I am on sites that are on the do not call registry. They ignore that. These are facts..not pointless rambling.
If I ever were to do business with any real estate company it WOULD NEVER BE THIS ONE.
If they are this aggressive to meet their quotas and cold calls could you even imagine dealing with them selling your home? I could not.
So the fact of the matter is that I was told over the phone that KW has a program where they, "actively seek to recruit FSBO sellers and to meet quotas." 3-28-2011 statement made to me.
If ANYONE from KW thinks that a seller who paid to sell their home themselves would switch to a company who calls up to 3 times a day from different offices...they are sadly misinformed.
I WOULD NEVER do business with anyone who behaves in the manner with which this company has let alone list my property with them.
I called the HQ and they told me or assumed the following:
1. Who the CEO is
2. I should talk to the regional manager (whatever that means)
3. Assumed I wanted to waste MORE of my time dealing with their behavior
4. That they cannot look bad to potential consumers with their aggressive behavior.
I am glad that the other two local agencies have the decency and common sense to not behave in this manner and clearly set a higher standard of behavior for their company and employees by respecting clear boundaries.
I hope KW can learn from the other agencies on what respect and boundaries are.
NEVER a potential consumer of Keller Williams For Life
