KW RED Day
On Thursday, May 11, more than 150,000 Keller Williams associates closed their offices to “give where they live” on RED Day. RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is a global day of service, where every market center selects a charity of their choice and dedicates the entire day to serving its recipients.
“RED Day exemplifies our culture of abundance,” Keller Williams CEO John Davis said. “Our associates donated literally hundreds of thousands of hours … leveraging their time and talents to give back to their communities and make a difference in people’s lives!”

This year, Jin and Anna Ro were able to do the unthinkable – take a family vacation. What seems normal to most people wasn’t possible for the pair until joining Keller Williams in 2015.
“We were so burnt out we were going to call it quits,” Jin recounts. “There were times we didn’t close anything for 4 – 6 months. Our expenses were everywhere and we didn’t have any goals or a system. It was chaos, and it was wearing us out.”
After joining the KW Irvine (Calif.) market center, the downward spiral their business was on reversed into an upward climb. From April 2016 to April 2017, Jin and Anna’s GCI increased 372 percent, closed sales increased 158 percent and the average sales price doubled.
KW Red Notes
On May 3, 2016, Keller Williams associate Jesse Dill of Beaverton, Ore., experienced a great loss. It was on that day that Dill learned his 26-year-old brother-in-law, Ryan Kautz, suddenly passed away from a tragic climbing accident. A caring man known as someone who was intentional about building others up, Kautz’s kindness and knack for leaving handwritten notes of encouragement inspired a movement that is really taking off.
