Keller Williams Realty International president John Davis presided over KW Urbain’s “Thanks to You Celebration” recently when Quebec’s first Keller Williams brokerage celebrated its milestone of sharing over $100,000 in profit with its brokers.
About 100 brokers and Keller Williams leadership participated in the festivities.
KW Urbain, which was founded by two former real estate board CEOs, Michel Beauséjour and Anne St. Dennis, was launched in downtown Montreal at the end of August 2013. It took three years of planning, while the Austin-based corporate head office familiarized itself with the complexity of the language laws and the Quebec Brokerage Act.
St. Dennis and Beauséjour say that, along with other business partners, they will soon expand to the south shore of Montreal. The new franchise will be called Keller Williams Momentum. Quebec now has four KW franchises with more expansion planned in the coming years.
“Many urban neighborhoods are places of concentrated poverty, and it's killing opportunity in the US.”
American cities are growing, and as they grow, they're adding lots of high-poverty neighborhoods. Nearly three times as many "high-poverty" census tracts existed in 2010 as in 1970. That's unsettling on its face but even more so when you see the havoc a poor neighborhood can wreak on a resident's chances at a good life. Forget gentrification — this is a bigger problem.
The chart above tallies up the people living in these neighborhoods in 1970 and 2010. What it shows is that the number of people living in high-poverty neighborhoods — those with poverty rates of 30 percent or more — has roughly doubled since 1970. That's because these neighborhoods of concentrated poverty have a tendency to stay that way, even while new ones sprout up.

Business Model Canvas, the Lean Canvas concepts pf today and how these models will propel your crowdfunding campaign!
In the last week of February, we published an article on business plan writing for crowdfunding campaigns. As most equity projects know already, this step is vital not only to the success of a listing, but to its portal approval well. That said, the traditional business plan no longer monopolizes the industry and a few modern variations now exist. Since these were briefly discussed in our previous post’s comments section, we will take a minute to expand the Business Model Canvas and the Lean Canvas concepts today.

“ After another record-setting year of growth, productivity and profitability gains, Keller Williams announced it has become the largest real estate franchise by agent count in the world. The Austin, Texas-based company added a net gain of 17,000 associates in 2014, increasing its worldwide associate count to more than 112,000.”
