About the Episode

We recently had an in-depth conversation with Mark Willis, a real estate industry leader and visionary who has shaped many career wins, lives and success stories. Many people in the industry have fond and epic memories of working alongside Mark, kicking butts, taking names and having a blast along the way. He is an inspiring figure in this business, and not just because of his leadership and influence, but also because he is driven by rising to meet the challenge of evolving through everything life throws at him. He has faced personal tragedy and loss, highs and lows, and tough moments that could overrun anyone, but Mark keeps going, choosing to get better even when life feels like it’s getting worse. 

Mark has constantly reinvented himself. He has stepped through the gateways of evolution successfully, has won by helping people around him win, maintained his broad level thinking, and philosophy on personal and professional growth. What keeps Mark going isn’t just the art of evolution, it’s also understanding the underlying drive of anyone who welcomes and embraces change. That’s knowing that it’s important to be open, not be too attached to one way of doing things and being willing to shift, instead of being closed and willful. 

Mark Willis, the former CEO of Keller Williams Realty International and current Founder of the Willis Family Foundation and Mark Willis Leadership, is a real estate leader, investor, philanthropist, thought leader, and lifestyle activist. Known for his dynamic and charismatic management style and tremendous influence, Willis’ was named one of the 10 most powerful people in residential real estate by the Swanepoel Power 200 in 2014; and since stepping down from his role at KW has used his platform and influence to actively serve and impact the lives of others.



In Today’s Episode, We Talk About;
