Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

The resent disaster that Hurricane Harvey brought to Houston has touched friends, family and loved ones from everywhere. 

Our KW Cares Disaster Response Team is currently working in Texas communities to supply equipment, supplies and assist with recovery efforts to areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey. With 16 market centers and 4,400 associates in Harvey’s footprint, Keller Williams had lined up three warehouses to help with the aftermath; one in San Antonio, one in Corpus Christi and one in the dryer part of Houston. But because of the way the storm has developed, Houston is the command center.
