KW Named Philly’s Top Workplace for 2nd Straight Year
“We want to build a community where nobody wants to leave.”
– Antonio Atacan, Operating Principal
Keller Williams Center City Realty
For the second straight year, Keller Williams Center City Realty is Philadelphia’s #1 large company, their third selection in four years (2011, 2013, 2014). Employees’ credit the overall commitment to training & education, for this impressive accomplishment locally. The Austin (TX) based firm considers professional development its highest priority. KW Center City’s “continuing education” program offers daily classes in various segments of the biz, including time management, technology, social media & settlement follow ups. The local reputation is reflected nationwide, as Training Magazine recently ranked Keller Williams the “second-best company in the country for employee development.”
Operating Principal Antonio Atacan & Franchise Leader Ted Mucellin head day-to-day affairs at KW’s reputable Center City branch. Located on the 16th & Walnut in Philadelphia’s Center City business district, office mindset is best summarized by the writing on the wall, literally. “Learning for earning’s sake,” as transcribed in one of their 5th floor conference rooms. The learning proves to yield earnings, as a total of $75 million returned to KW agent pockets last year, due to the company’s profit-sharing program. The Center City branch received $250,000 of 2013’s KW profit share.
In a struggling employment market nationwide, KW Center City’s “development-focused mindset” seems to pinpoint contemporary recipes for success. KW Agent Skye Michaels cites the embrace of technology & mobile apps as a perfect example. “I think this company is on the growth edge, instead of being protectionist,” and the numbers prove it. KW employs 80k, in 690 North American offices. 2,200 of these employees contribute at 35 Delaware Valley Locations. KW Center City employs a rapidly growing family of 216. Over 70 agents joined the team 2013.
