One of the reasons The Belt Team affiliated with Keller Williams Realty four years ago was the fact that we put our clients first. It is important to us to be part of a company that not only cares about its clients, but gives their associates every possible tool to gain an advantage for our clients. At Keller Williams Realty, that comes in the form of technology, training and people. So when J.D. Power recently announced that Keller Williams Realty ranked highest among their competitors in terms of customer satisfaction with both home buyers and home sellers – we were thrilled. For us, this is an affirmation that we made a great decision – both for ourselves and more importantly – for our clients. Our mission at The Belt Team is to change lives for the better, one family at a time. And our affiliation with Keller Williams is key in that mission.
