Ruben’s path to Keller Williams is unique, since the role he filled didn’t even exist beforehand. However, the problems he needed to solve did—and a friend of Ruben's on the team saw an opportunity to add Ruben's economic insights to Keller Williams. After coming on as a temporary consultant, Ruben was invited to join the team full-time as the first staff economist.
Since KWRI encourages professional development and offers flexible hours, Ruben heads to class before coming into the office. Once he’s at his desk, Ruben crunches numbers and analyzes spreadsheets to monitor economic statistics that could be useful in reports. His main goal is to capture raw—often overlooked—data so KWRI can continue growing with strategic tweaks along the way.
