Executive Director of KW Cares and President of Luxury Homes
Kathy got into real estate to work with people, which is only one of the reasons she’s the leader of Keller Williams Realty’s nonprofit KW Cares, which helps our associates and their families in times of need. Combine Kathy’s social nature with more than 20 years of real estate expertise, and it’s easy to understand how she also heads up our luxury homes division.
Beginning her KW career in 1993 as an agent in the Northwest market center in Austin, Texas, Kathy quickly gained experience in a variety of roles, managing a franchise, opening her own franchise and then joining KWRI in 2005 as the director of franchise relations – again helping people across
the country operate and grow their businesses. She moved into her current role in 2009, and is to this day one of our associates’ and leadership’s biggest advocates. She still teaches our Franchise Systems Orientation course after nearly a decade to help thousands of people learn about KW and how to run a successful business.
When Kathy’s not making new acquaintances or touting Keller Williams’ vision and agent-centric model, she’s probably spending time with family and old friends. Her proudest job to date is being a grandmother to Emily and Grant.
