I am interviewing brokers to decide who to work with, I sent in a request to find out about Keller Williams, they responded quickly inviting me to a luncheon talk they were having the next day. I went and there were only a few attendees, it was informative and I liked the offices and energy I got from a few agents I was able to meet while there.
I was told I would receive a follow up email with the details given at the luncheon as well as additional info I would need to make my decision. The luncheon was Wednesday, I sent a follow up email to the front desk and team leader on Friday morning. I have still not heard back from either! Is this a common tactic to see if potential agent is committed enough to go after them? It seems strange that they would not at least reply to my follow up email.... I am thinking of calling later today!

No; it's probably just a case of recruiting "New Agents" not currently being a very high priority matter in that Office.

And the person(?) to whom you sent the follow-up email may not be very motivated to encourage adding more Staff.

The squeaky wheel usually gets the grease.

If they don't respond by email then call 'em! Better yet, stop on into the office and speak with them in person.

Ive been in real estate for 14 years and joined KW in December of 2016. I was with Remax for most of my career, and then an independent company. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. In a nut shell I'm very happy with KW. It's a lot of freedom, and the splits are awesome. Tons and tons of training, and everyone is an open book.

Does Keller Williams strongly encourage or even demand new agents to join someone's team within the office? I want good training and personal mentoring but,don't want to be supervised by some team leader dictating my schedule and activities.

That sounds like it would be contrary to the IRS's definition of an "independent Contractor", doesn't it ?

It is a voluntary team of legally independent agents with a "captain " of sorts directing the teams activities like when to prospect,when to practice scripts,etc.The captain isn't responsible for workers compensation payments or any other legal responsibilities of a broker or employer.I simply don't want to be told the team meets everyday at such and such and you can't miss this and that or else.If I have to be in a team,I want a little scheduling flexibility or else I won't join them.

Brokers don't have those responsibilities for Independent Contractors either. Most Real Estate Agents are defined as ineligible for Workers Compensation, Employer's Liability, UnEmployment Compensation, Health Insurance, Vacation Time, Maternity Leave, Paid Holidays, Sick Time, 401-Ks, Over-Time or any of those other vestiges of the Hourly or Salaried work world . . . . afterall, they're Independent !

But if a condition of hiring an Independent Contractor is for the Employer to exercise control over the workplace, the hours, or the specific activities of that person, then that control violates the Rules and s/he ceases to be an Independent Contractor and immediately becomes an EMPLOYEE in the eyes of the IRS and most other Federal, State and Local governing authorities.

Your use (or Keller Williams' use) of the word "voluntary" makes it sound like subjugating or subordinating oneself to this form of control is purely elective on the part of the Licensee . . . . and NOT a requirement. Read your proposed ICA (Independent Contractor Agreement) very carefully.
