Keller Williams Realty Expanding to Palm City
In February, Charles Posess, operating principal of four Keller Williams offices, announced that he had purchased the former Bank Atlantic building at the corner of Matheson and Martin Downs Boulevard in Palm City and would open another Keller
Williams Business Center one day in the near future.
That day has arrived and the office — which is a satellite of the KW Treasure Coast Flagship Market Center in Stuart — is open and welcoming the public. Hal Frasier, longtime Palm City resident and one of the original agents on board when Keller Williams first opened in Stuart in April 2006, is heading up the new facility.
“Charles is planning renovations to our space of 4,500 square feet to bring it up to the quality of our 12,000-square-foot Market Center, which is located at 819 SW Federal Hwy, Stuart, in the Royal Palm Financial Center. More than176 agents work out of that state
of the art facility where we will continue to hold all our meetings and training,” Frasier said.
Cristi Hernandez, team leader and designated broker of the entire Treasure Coast Keller Williams franchise, oversees both locations. “The new office which is called a Business Center by KW International is a perfect answer to better serving Palm City residents and our agents who specialize in that part of Martin County. It is also just a short distance to the Becker Road section of Port St Lucie, so agents who work in that area can be closer to their listings,” Hernandez said.
The Keller Williams expansion continues into St Lucie West as Posess recently purchased the 6,800-square-foot building in PGA Village that Lang Realty has occupied since Lang bought Villager Realty LLC from The Kolter Group.
Posess plans on moving his KW St. Lucie West office, which is currently in rental space, to the PGA location in April 2014 after expanding that facility.
Gail Hovey is the team leader and broker of record in the St. Lucie Business Center and can be reached at (772) 200-9577, while Michael Brue is the general manager and oversees all of the Posess franchises and can be contacted at (561) 301-3287.
At the recent Keller Williams National Convention in Dallas, CEO Mark Willis announced that KW is now the largest real estate franchise by agent count in the United States. He also announced that Workplace Dynamics has named Keller Williams Realty as the No.9
workplace in America — the only real estate franchise company on the Top 150 Workplaces list.
“There are several reasons for our explosive worldwide growth, including the KW Profit Share plan, which treats agents as business partners,” he said. “Since Profit Share began in 1987, KW International has returned more than $4.6 million to agents throughout the system who have helped the company grow.”
