Darrell King - Keller Williams Realty

Darrell King

Chief Operating Officer


"In the real estate industry, change is the one constant," says Darrell King, who directs operations for the world's largest real estate franchise by agent count. "We're committed to creating change that gives our agents a competitive edge in their local markets. If we are reacting, we are already behind. We have an incredible team of collaborative leaders who work tirelessly to innovate so that we bring more value to our agents, Market Centers and Regions, allowing them to grow their business, build market share and create opportunities for themselves and their families."

King brings to his role more than 20 years of experience in business operations, franchise compliance and personnel management. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, King has served as the chief risk officer for a major retail franchise and as Commitment Director for Keller Williams Realty International. His teams have developed and implemented new models, systems and controls, holding Keller Williams' local and regional leadership teams accountable and helping to drive the company's record growth, productivity and profitability gains.

As a member of Keller Williams' executive leadership team, King focuses on helping the business divisions within Keller Williams execute plans to meet established goals, while remaining nimble to identify and take advantage of new opportunities.

He credits Keller Williams with opening his eyes to an industry that provides unlimited avenues to fund your dreams. "Real estate is an amazing vehicle for creating wealth, whether as an agent, a franchise operator or an investor," he says.

Keller Williams has distinguished itself with its profit sharing business model, a culture based on learning and giving back, and a belief system that places family before business. King lives those values every day. He wants his legacy to be as a great husband and father, and to give everyone in his life the encouragement and mindset to accomplish everything they want.

When he's not serving business leaders and entrepreneurs, you'll find King enjoying time with his wonderful wife, Lori, and their three kids, and coaching their sports teams. "It's tremendously gratifying to share the lessons and skills I learned growing up with the next generation," he says.
