Keller Williams orders purge of thousands of ‘ghost agents’

Haunted by rosters of inactive, unlicensed and deceased agents, KW President Josh Team confirmed the company will purge up to 15,000 names nationwide

Keller Williams has been growth-obsessed over the past decade, but according to multiple sources, the 190,000-plus agent ranks are filled with former agents and sometimes even deceased agents in one instance. Multiple sources told Inman that it’s been an unspoken company policy at Keller Williams to keep agents on the roster, long after they are no longer associated with the company.
