Gary Keller sings from the KW mountaintop

  • Student loan debt is slowing the housing market and the economy, and economic growth is anemic -- 75 percent of recent college graduates are strangled by an average of $363 a month in loan payments.
  • Some things about the sharing economy are counterintuitive -- using Uber every day is more expensive than owning a car, Keller noted.
  • Online search is not making buyers smarter and may actually result in home shoppers taking longer to find the right home.

In a meeting room the size of two football fields, Keller Williams co-founder walked a crowd of 15,000 eager KW agents through an economics and housing market tutorial, starting with interest rates and ending with technology trends.
