The face of luxury in our society is changing. With a term used so loosely in the marketplace, what does “luxury” mean in our economy, and how can we connect with this market, even beyond those in the top 1 percent?
Scott Ritter, president and chief executive officer of Dahlgren Duck & Associates, recently offered insights at the 2017 Keller Williams Luxury International Retreat.
While working as a bank teller in high school, Keller Williams associate Jeff Quintin had his first glimpse into the earning potential of a real estate agent. During his employment at the bank, Quintin met numerous real estate agents and quickly realized he wanted to start a real estate career of his own. Wasting no time, Quintin began prospecting and generating business. While he was getting the appointments, he wasn’t closing the deals; so Quintin turned his attention to scripts and developing a morning routine that changed the trajectory of his career.
Here are the five steps Quintin took to become a massive lead generator:
The goal of most real estate, home staging and interior design firms is to secure luxury clientele. Everyone wants to work with buyers who are willing to pay top dollar for their homes and interiors. At the high end of the market, e…
Finding, hiring and retaining top talent is crucial. Because although real estate turnover varies from place to place, the effects are the same – low workplace morale, a decrease in productivity and, ultimately, a hit to your bottom line. This is why Keller Williams has introduced two new courses: 30-60-90 and Success Through Others.

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.
