Keller Williams Realty Launches Commercial Division

San Antonio, TX, September 12, 2008 --( Residential real estate firm Keller Williams Realty International announced plans on August 19, 2008 to launch a commercial division titled KW Commercial. Keller Williams, one of the largest real estate companies in North America, plans to become the company of choice in both the residential and commercial worlds by providing its associates with the technology, marketing tools, and resources to succeed in the commercial business. "We want to create synergy and referrals between the residential and commercial sides of our Keller Williams offices, increasing the income and production potential of all our agents," said Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty International.

Commercial real estate veteran Tom Phillips has joined KW Commercial to assist in the launch of the division in the Texas marketplace. Phillips, a Realtor®, former broker with Marcus & Millichap, member of the Realtors Commercial Alliance and a CCIM Candidate is looking forward to the launch of the new division. "I am extremely excited about the launch of KW Commercial and the untapped commercial real estate opportunities that will be derived by networking with the more than 2,800 Keller Williams agents throughout Texas. Equally appealing is the opportunity to recruit other commercial brokers to a great company that offers much more attractive commission splits than traditional commercial brokerage shops and the ability to earn passive income."

Phillips serves on the newly created Commercial Leadership Council (CLC) - a group of 25 top Keller Williams commercial brokers from across North America selected to guide the launch and implementation of the new division. He will also serve as a KW Commercial Director in the IH-10 Keller Williams office.
