Keller Williams named #1 Training Organization Across All Industries


You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward.—Conrad Hall

No matter what your industry, we believe growing and stretching ourselves through continued education is vitally important.

Education not only keeps you on the cutting edge, it also protects you from falling into a rut and simply going through the motions day after day.

The Zia Group strongly believes in investing time to learn and improve.

That is why we are so excited about Keller Williams’ newest award …

No. 1 on the 2015 Training Top 125 list

Training Magazine named Keller Williams the world’s No. 1 training organization across all industries in its 2015 Training Top 125 list. At the Feb. 9 awards ceremony in Atlanta, the magazine recognized Keller Williams for the growth, productivity, and profitability caused by its training programs.

Keller Williams has created an entire department to create competitive real estate and business courses. It offers its agents multiple types of training programs through Keller Williams University.

  • BOLD teaches agents productivity and lead generation techniques to help them succeed.
  • MAPS (Mega Achievement Productivity Systems) teaches more established agents the models and systems required to build a team and expand into new regions.
  • Events—such as the annual Family Reunion convention, Mega Camp, and Masterminds—offer additional training opportunities.

“The educational support offered by Keller Williams particularly appealed to me when I moved my business here,” said Daniel Zia, CEO and Broker-Associate at the Zia Group.

That educational support also appeals to other agents. Keller Williams grew by 17,000 associates in 2014, making it the largest real estate franchise in the world by agent count.

Keller Williams Realty International not only offers the world’s best training programs, it also boasts the most real estate agents (more than 112,000 worldwide).
