Keller Williams surpassed 133,000 associates in 2015, which they say makes them the world’s largest real estate franchise by agent count. The increase in agents marks a net gain of more than 20,000 in 2015 alone.

The rise in agent count also helped Keller Williams post a record year for closed transactions, sales volume, agent commissions, and profit share growth.

Keller Williams reached 843,547 closed transactions in 2015, up 19 percent year-over-year. Sales volume rose 24 percent to $228 billion. Another record for the franchise: 99 percent of Keller Williams’ offices were profitable in 2015, according to a news release.
