Keller Williams Makes It To Malaysia
By Roubeeni Mohan
Keller Williams (KW), the world’s largest real estate technology firm by agent count, is expanding across Asia. As of June 2019, KW has been awarded a new master license in Malaysia.
Malaysia marks the ninth KW master license in Asia. The brand’s other regions include Cambodia, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Greater Shanghai, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Turkey, and Vietnam.
“The vision of the KW Malaysia team is massive. With more than 800 agents already, they understand the interdependent model deeply, and they see the enormous opportunity of growing it throughout Asia,” said William E. Soteroff, president of Keller Williams Worldwide (KWW), the international division of Keller Williams.
Over 800 real estate professionals will join the KW Malaysia master license along with David Ong, who will serve as Malaysia’s regional operating principle. Ong is currently serving as the president and founder of Reapfield Group, which will transition into a KW license.
The rebrand of Reapfield into KW Malaysia is expected to complete in Q4 2019.
The core criteria for new licensees starts with having a qualified leadership team, grounded in the Keller Williams culture. The company also strives for government, banking and judicial system stability and a higher maturity level in the real estate market.
Reapfield currently offers a broad range of real estate marketing, advisory, management and transactional services to clients across Malaysia. The firm currently has 11 offices across the country.
