Keller Williams Realty Flood Relief Efforts


KW Flood Relief Efforts

Our Keller Williams team: boots-on-the-ground to organizing serious donations!

It is no secret that I love working at Keller Williams Realty International, the corporate headquarters for the world’s largest real estate franchise. The values-based culture is what attracted me when I was recruited to the company and as I reflect on the disaster relief efforts of the past two weeks, I am more dedicated than ever to this business empire with a big heart!

When floods ravaged Central Texas, our company immediately launched into action identifying how our 250 corporate team members and Texas agents could help. In less than two weeks, I am astounded by our progress and inspired by our commitment to continue our efforts for the duration of the clean-up. Our business is to find dream homes; it is our responsibility to help rebuild their homes and lives!

I have had the blessing to be a part of the core team organizing our relief efforts which remains an emotional journey. I am filled with gratitude for Keller Williams, the strong volunteers dedicated to helping others, and the resilient survivors who remain optimistic through such devastating conditions. We have shared laughs and tears, but most importantly, we have built special relationships and made new friends that will remain for a lifetime. (Stories for another post!)

Our corporate staff alone has volunteered more than 600 hours and we are not finished yet! From driving Bobcats to move debris, to shoveling homes filled with mud, to demolishing the insides of homes that need to be completely rebuilt, I have marveled at the incredible skills my colleagues possess. In addition to the powerful boots-on-the-ground efforts, they have also organized donation drives for food, money, clothing, and household items and have packed hundreds of personal hygiene bags for survivors.

In typical KW “all-in” form, our agents were quick to respond, organizing volunteer trips involving hundreds of agents from Central Texas. My heart swelled when a bus filled with Houston agents — while floodwaters still lurked in Houston — arrived in San Marcos, ready to help clean homes and organize donation centers.

The efforts continue! Our corporate team and Central Texas franchise offices have set up volunteer days of the week to ensure that our neighbors have support for the duration. If you wish to volunteer with a group, email me at We would love for you to join us!

I have never been more proud to be part of Keller Williams Realty International! Times like these remind me of why we are always on best places to work lists and why we truly are the real estate company of choice. Explore a career with us or connect with our international network of agents for your next move. I can help you become part of our KW family as a client, agent or corporate team member. We would love to expand our hearts to you!
