Technology and Marketing

Keller Williams has been named to Fast Company's prestigious annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies (MIC) for 2019. The company ranked No. 1 in the real estate and urban development category. The World's Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts each year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

Keller Williams’ evolution into a technology company began in 2015. Its focus: building the real estate platform that agents' buyers and sellers prefer. To accomplish this, Keller Williams has focused on delivering tech that’s simpler, smarter, and more human; all at no additional cost to its people. Agents are able to gain control of their database and business, so they can spend more time servicing their clients and delivering the hyperlocal, customized experience they crave. 

Every action the company has taken over the last few years was to bring it closer to this reality:

HOME DNA
As consumers use the app, the system will build a model based on search criteria to search the MLS for homes that fit that criteria and provide consumers with a % match, based on the criteria they have set. Using "home DNA", the app will formulate search criteria to suggest additional properties, based on attributes and features the consumer has prioritized.

PROPERTY DETAIL
Consumers can gain complete information about a particular lisitng and can collaborate with their agent, see their agent's insights, or schedule a tour with their agent.

COLLECTIONS
This feature allows clients to create "collections" of homes, based on certain criteria and collaborate with frients, family, or agents around these collections.

NEIGHBOURHOODS
For the first time, consumers can explore information the way they want to see it...by neighbourhood (rather than zip code). Infused by local insights, consumers will be able to learn everything about a particular neighbourhood.

REAL ESTATE FEED
This feed features everything related to real estate; neighbourhoods (consumers can find out when new homes have been added to the market), their home (value change, time to change air filters, taxes due, interest rates), and other valuable updates from their agent.

TIMELINE GUIDE
Once the consumer becomes a client, the app contextually changes for them (according to their and their agent's interactions), providing the client with on-demand information.

TOUR MODE
Consumers can use Tour Mode on their own or with their agent as they are driving, running, or walking. The app will curate a list of properties within a chose radius, during that specific route. Routes can be labelled and ranked.

FILTERS
The app will tell you how uniaque of a search criteria you are putting into the system and will give you insight into how many people are looking for a similar home. In addition, consumers can choose to prioritize which home feature they see first while searching for homes (ie: kitchen, backyard, bedroom, etc.).
