Vlad Kats - Business Growth Consultant (Team Leader)

Phone: 443-720-0960 Email: vlad@kw.com

As the Team Leader of Keller Williams Legacy, Vlad's main objective in his current role is to grow market share for Legacy's associates.  When this happens, everybody (KWL associates, their clients, and KWL itself) benefits from synergies involved.  Vlad accomplishes this objective with two distinct activities:

1. Recruiting associates to Keller Williams Legacy
2. Training, coaching, and consulting KWL's associates on how to build real estate sales businesses that fund their perfect lives

Even before the start of his professional career, Vlad has demonstrated a strong desire for empowering others in achieving their true potential in business and in life.

After earning his real estate license in 2005, Vlad’s mission became a student of the residential real estate business, and its many factors, with a goal on how to best advise his buyer, seller, and investor clients on how to achieve their real estate goals.  During his sales career, Vlad participated in close to 1,000 transactions ranging from first time buyers and investors, to luxury, to short sales, REOs, and serial real estate investors.  

In less than 3 years after joining Keller Williams Realty in 2011, Vlad built two self-sufficient (7th-Level) real estate companies - Atlas Home Group and Atlas Loss Mitigation - which help hundreds of Maryland’s homeowners annually in avoiding foreclosure.

In 2014, after proving his ability to grow a business through others, Vlad was presented with an opportunity to become a Team Leader of the newly-started Keller Williams Legacy(KWL) in Pikesville, MD.  Under his leadership, the Legacy Market Center grew from 59 associates to close to 300 in less than two years - making Legacy in the top 3 of the fastest growing real estate offices in the world.

On a local scale, and driven by Vlad’s focus on equipping KWL associates with real estate industry’s best models, systems, and tools, KWL became the #1 real estate office in Baltimore City and Baltimore County in size, transaction count, and overall volume.

Vlad wholeheartedly believes that every real estate professional deserves access to the tools, people, and the environment that promote success in both personal and business lives.  He is on a mission to transform the relationship between real estate agents and their brokerages from dependent/independent, to an interdependent, long-term, value-driven one.

Prior to his career in real estate, Vlad served as an Economist for a major U.S. Government agency, was an owner of a small business, and an adjunct professor of Management.  He holds a degree in Economics from St. Mary’s College of Maryland and an MBA in Entrepreneurship from University of Maryland in College Park.  Vlad is also an active participant in programs designed by Landmark Worldwide.

Vlad resides in Pikesville, MD with his wife and three children.
