Can’t Imagine Being Anywhere Else

Bill Hurme joined Keller Williams Realty in November 2013 with more than 40 years of experience in the real estate industry. Much of this time was spent carving out a unique business for himself through strong relationships with builders and developers in the greater Seattle area.

Hurme’s business focused on new construction and he wondered if the training opportunities he was seeking would be geared toward agents with a more diversified business. “Recruit-Select was fantastic!” said Hurme.

“I’ve worked with numerous real estate companies over my long career. Keller Williams is leading the way because they have the right model for agents. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.”

The instructor, Georgia Alpizar was very knowledgeable and he enjoyed her direct approach while teaching. Most important, he was able to apply the lessons and models to his business despite the fact that he does not practice traditional resale.

Hurme has also attended Franchise Systems Orientation (FSO), Masterminds, Family Reunion and Mega Camp. In fact, attending Mega Camp in August of 2013 is what “sealed the deal” for Hurme and inspired him to make the switch. At the annual convention, he met Gary Keller and members of the KWRI executive team, along with the regional director for the Northwest Region and many of Keller Williams’ top agents. “I saw all of these fantastic people in one place and knew I had to be there too!”

The transition to Keller Williams has been an entirely positive experience for Hurme and his team. He’s been able to expand his business into new markets and he believes that the KW economic model offers great value for his company.
