How can I correct or change my sponsor?

Once an individual's sponsor has been entered into the Profit Sharing Program, there are very few exceptions that allow it to be edited.  It may be changed for typographical errors which may have occurred when the individual was first entered into the system. If a clerical error was made by the individual, or by the MCA, the mistake can be corrected provided the individual who recently joined KW submits a written statement of the nature of the mistake, along with a copy of the document which originally named their sponsor, to the TL of their Market Center.

NOTE: The changing of sponsors is NOT allowed regardless of the situation once the associate has been with KW for more than 90 days. Below is Mo Anderson's email regarding the correction/changing of sponsors emailed to all KW Associates January 7th, 2006:

Dear Keller Williams Realty Associates,

This is to remind you of the IALC ruling made regarding sponsors earlier this year. On the subject of changing sponsorship, the Policies and Guidelines Manual reads:

Once an individual's sponsor has been entered into the Profit Sharing Program, it may be changed due to typographical errors which may have occurred when the individual was first entered into the system. If a clerical error was made by the individual, or by the MCA, the mistake can be corrected provided the individual who recently joined KW submits a written statement of the nature of the mistake, along with a copy of the document which originally named their sponsor, to the TL of their Market Center.

The statement must be approved and signed by both the TL and the Regional Director, within 90 days of the date the individual originally joined Keller Williams. If the error is not noted within this 90 day grace period, then the individual's sponsor, as originally entered in the MORE system, shall remain unchanged. (Section 4, page 47, Policies and Guidelines Manual)

We unfortunately cannot deviate from this rule, so please be sure your sponsor's name and MC # are correct when you fill out your paperwork.

Remember, you have 90 days from the date you join Keller Williams Realty to notify your team leader of any discrepancies.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Mo Anderson
Vice Chairman, Keller Williams Realty Inc.

If you still feel that you are eligible to continue the process of a sponsorship correction then please have your MCA access the Sponsorship Correction Form.  Additional instructions on how to proceed will be located on the form itself.
