Keller Williams Surpasses $1 Billon in Profit Share to Associates

Keller Williams Surpasses $1 Billon in Profit Share to Associates

Profit share is one way in which Keller Williams Realty exemplifies the principle of success through others. Each month, market centers share roughly half of their profits with the agents who helped grow the market center and make it profitable. But in order for there to be profit share, there must first be success.

Since the inception of the , KW has distributed more than $1 billion to associates who have helped the company grow!

And, thanks to the company’s recent growth and agent production gains, it has distributed more profit share in the past four years than in the preceding 21 years combined.

“As a company, we’re motivated by helping people fund their lives and create opportunities,” CEO John Davis says. “Giving back is part of our culture. Profit share allows our people to earn passive income for life so they can pay for their kids’ education, take care of their parents, and invest for the future.”

The historic achievement comes as Keller Williams is closing in on its most successful profit share year yet. Through the first 10 months of the year, KW has shared $151.9 million with associates in the United States and Canada, an increase of 14.1 percent compared with the same period in 2016. (Keller Williams associates outside of the United States and Canada participate in a similar program called “growth share.”)

Individual Keller Williams market center owners share roughly 50 percent of their office’s monthly profits with associates who have helped the business grow. As of Oct. 31, 98 percent of Keller Williams market centers were profitable for the year. Moreover, a record four market centers had already distributed $1 million or more this year. There are also individual agents who have received seven-figure distributions.

In the six years since Keller Williams launched its companywide Growth Initiative, profit share payouts have grown substantially:

  • $154.4 million in 2016
  • $129.8 million in 2015
  • $98.1 million in 2014
  • $78.2 million in 2013
  • $55.3 million in 2012
  • $38.3 million in 2011

Keller Williams Co-Founder and Chairman Gary Keller and early company leaders created the profit share program to ensure the goals of KW owners and agents remain permanently aligned. Innumerable lives have been changed as a result.

“Profit share saved my life.”

Dawn Braithwaite, a top-producing agent out of Ridgewood, N.J., credits the profit share program for saving her life. After a bad fall, Braithwaite sustained severe injuries to her wrist and within 24 hours learned she needed surgery. Her heart sank as her insurance company told her the surgery would not be covered.

“I just got divorced and was trying to pay all my bills,” Braithwaite says. “There was no way I could afford it. I didn’t know what to do.” After meeting with her doctor early in the week, she learned her only options would be to negotiate the price of the surgery down or have it performed by medical students at another clinic on the other side of town. But even at a discounted rate, the surgery was out of her price range.

She canceled her surgery and resigned herself to being stuck until she received an unexpected message in her inbox.

“On Thursday, I opened my email and saw that my profit share check had been deposited,” she says. “I couldn’t believe it!” Stunned and relieved, Braithwaite contacted her doctor right away and was in surgery the following day. It ended up being the surgery that saved her life.

“What should have taken an hour ended up taking two and a half,” Braithwaite explains. “It was a complicated operation because the doctors found that I had severed an artery and nerves. I could have bled to death. If profit share hadn’t come in, I don’t know what I would have done.”

“With profit share, our opportunities to give are so much greater.”

Linda McKissack.pngLinda McKissack, Keller Williams’ number one profit share earner, calls the program “the greatest gift we’ve been given.” Since becoming purposeful about profit share in 2007, McKissack has built a significant business and teaches agents how they can fund their lives long after their last deal is finished.

While McKissack has enjoyed the money, “the real gift is significance,” she comments. “It changes people’s lives.”

She has seen the impact firsthand with her family.

“My son-in-law was sick for 10 and a half months with terminal cancer,” McKissack shares. “My husband and I only worked three weeks during that time because money was coming in passively. Helping him fulfill his life wishes and being with my daughter, granddaughter and family – it was priceless. If you have profit share covering your expenses, you have freedom. You never know what’s on your horizon.”

“It allows me to be free. I will pass it along to my children.”

Since profit share is willable, agents are able to leave a lasting legacy for years to come. When Charles Bowles – a Keller Williams agent from Tulsa, Okla., and a significant profit share earner – died, Steve Whitaker was astonished to learn he had been included in his will.

“We were good friends and I helped take care of him during the last few years of his life,” Whitaker explains. “When he passed, he left everything to me, including profit share. I was able to take the proceeds and build my own house with it.”

Today, Whitaker is thriving in Oklahoma and owns a waste-removal company called Git-Er-Gone along with numerous properties. He partners with many Keller Williams agents in the area to remove unwanted items from homes. The monthly income from profit share “allows me to be free,” he says. “I don’t have to work as hard as I would.”

Just as Bowles paid his profit share forward, Whitaker plans on willing his profit share to his children so they can benefit from him. “I will put it in a trust so they can continue to take care of the properties we own.”

5 Tax Benefits of Owning a Second Home

As a RSPS certified realtor I can help you find your perfect family get away. Realtor.com explains how owning that home can even help get you more tax benefits.

 5 Tax Benefits of Owning a Second Home


There are tons of benefits that come with owning a second home: novelty and adventure, a place to escape and unwind, an opportunity to create memories that last a lifetime, a valuable tool to make vacation-craving friends like you a whole lot (for better or for worse).

But there’s another benefit that’s often overlooked: the tax breaks.

You already know that owning a home usually offers some tax deductions. But what if you own two? Or three? What if you’re a regular Donald Trump (back in his real estate, meat magnate heyday, of course)?

Since we know you won’t mind a little extra cash to spend while soaking in your surroundings during your next getaway, we thought we’d tell you how to reap the fruits of your second-home purchase.

1. Mortgage interest—yes, again

When it comes to owning a second home, the interest on your mortgage is deductible. The same rules that come with writing off mortgage interest for your first home apply to your second.

In fact, you can write off as much as 100% of the interest you pay on up to $1 million of debt, which includes total debt taken on to pay for both homes, as well as money spent on improving the properties. (That’s not up to $1 million for each property—just up to $1 million in total.)

2. Home improvements

Is your second home a fixer-upper? If you want to spend the off-season making improvements to your hideaway, you can deduct the interest on a home equity loan or line of credit.

But there are a couple of exceptions.

For starters, there will be a limit on the amount you can deduct if the home equity loan on your main or second home is more than $50,000 if filing single or $100,000 if married or filing jointly.

Second, the amount you can deduct has a limit if the mortgage is more than the fair market value of the home, says Gil Charney, director of The Tax Institute at H&R Block.

For example, let’s say a taxpayer has a mortgage of $220,000 and takes out a home equity loan of $65,000. The property’s fair market value is $275,000. Since the difference between the fair market value and the mortgage is $55,000, then $55,000 of the home equity loan can be deducted, not the full $65,000.

3. Property taxes

You can also deduct your second home’s property taxes, which are based on the assessed value of the home. That’s good news. Even better news? Unlike the mortgage interest tax deduction, there’s no dollar limit on the amount of real estate taxes that can be deducted on any number of homes owned by the taxpayer.

But beware: Taxpayers who can afford two homes are likely to land in a higher tax bracket—which means slimmer pickings for tax savings. For example, in 2016, a married couple whose gross income exceeds $311,300 would have limits on the types of itemized deductions they could take.

4. Renting out your home

If you rent out your second home for 14 days or less over the course of a year, that rental income is tax-free—and there’s no limit to what you can charge per day or week. Score!

But if you’re hoping to put your secondary digs on Airbnb or another rental site for more than 14 days during the year, be prepared to do some heavy math come tax time.

You’ll want to figure out the number of days you rent your home and divide that by the total number of days your home was used—whether it was you or a renter staying there. (The total number of days that the home was vacant doesn’t fall into this equation.)

For instance, let’s say you rented out your vacation home for 30 days within a year, and vacationed in your home for 90 days.

We’ll divide 30 (the days you rented it out) by 120 (the total number of days the home was used). The result: 25% of your rental-related expenses—which could range from utilities to the cost of a property manager—can be deducted. Now, if your home is losing value, that same percentage (in this example, 25%) of depreciation costs can also be deducted.

Here’s the caveat, Charney explains: Depreciation costs can be deducted only if there is rental income remaining after taking into account other deductions, such as mortgage interest, property taxes, and direct expenses tied to renting your home—like agent fees or advertising.

5. When it’s time to sell

Maybe you bought a far-off hideaway that you’re lucky to visit a couple of times a year. Or perhaps your vacation home is just a quick drive away, and you spend every possible moment there.

If it’s the latter—and you don’t already know which of your homes is your primary residence and which is the second home—now’s the time to figure it out. Distinguishing between the two can have big tax implications when it comes time to sell.

That’s because a capital gain of up to $250,000 (or $500,000 for taxpayers who are married/joint filers) on the sale of the principal residence may be excluded from taxable income.

Your principal—or primary—residence is the home you used most during the five years prior to the sale. But other factors—such as your job’s location, voter registration address, and banking location—could also come into play. Among other requirements, you must own and use that principal residence for at least two of the five years before the home is sold.

We know—that’s a lot of heavy stuff to take in. But you knew your second home would pay off in more ways than one, right? Now, hurry up and file your tax return—so you can escape to your happy place and forget about burdensome things. Like taxes.
