Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : June 2008

KELLER WILLIAMS

In the end, it was probably time for a change.

I had a good two and a half years at my last company.  I learned tons about real estate.  I learned tons about myself.  I learned I had tons more to learn.

But, it was time to change.  And I have.

I joined Keller Williams this afternoon.  I have filled out the paperwork, signed my life away, and now am celebrating at my favorite Starbucks (downtown Naperville).

I decided to walk away from the big brand name.  It's time to brand myself.

I chose a friendly family environment over that of a big corporation.

I chose something new over something familiar.

I chose a culture where everybody wins.

I chose Keller Williams.
