Keller Williams launches in Honduras, Turks and Caicos

The No. 1 franchise brand is expanding its international footprint

Keller Williams, the largest real estate franchise, is expanding its presence in Latin America and the Caribbean, opening new offices in Honduras and Turks and Caicos.

The Honduras office will be led by Raul Martinez, and the office in Turks and Caicos, an archipelago of 40 islands about 400 miles southeast of the Bahamas, is being led by Terry Meneley, Keller Williams said.

“We’re really proud to be expanding our footprint in those areas,” William Soteroff, president of Keller Williams Worldwide said in an interview with HousingWire.

“In Turks and Caicos, we have someone who has been in that marketplace for more than 25 years” leading the new office, Soteroff said.

The two new regions will be added to Keller Williams Worldwide’s 226 offices with 9,945 agents in Argentina, Belgium, Belize, Bermuda, Cambodia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyrus, Czech Republic, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, France, China, Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, Morocco, Nicaragua, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, United Kingdom and Vietnam.

Austin, Texas-based Keller Williams earlier this month announced a redesign of its website featuring a neighborhood-centric way to search for a home. The new search experience is powered by data feeds resulting from Keller Williams’ acquisition of Smarter Agent, announced in September 2018.

Keller Williams was the No. 1 franchise brand in 2019 with 153,904 agents, up from 149,203 in 2017, according to data from the National Association of Realtors.

Coldwell Banker was No. 2 at 85,192 agents, down from 89,000 two years ago. Next was RE/MAX, with 62,664 agents, up from 62,441, and Century 21 at 53,571, down from 55,346.
