Lucas Sherraden
Operating Principal
Multiple Offices

Lucas has the opportunity to live out his mission statement daily: “To inspire passion within people to accomplish their God-given destinies of greatness and to create prosperity for those I serve.”

With a background as a pastor who traveled the world on speaking engagements, in 2009 Lucas decided to become a licensed Realtor in Texas so that he could be home with his wife and four children. After a short time with another brokerage, Lucas joined KW Southwest in Houston, Texas. In his first year at KW, Lucas earned over $150,000 and won the Career Launch Award. The next year, he became the Team Leader of the Keller Williams Houston/Katy Market Center where he earned his first Black Belt recruiting award and finished #8 in the company in Net Agent Growth.

In 2012, Lucas took on a fresh opportunity to grow the Overland Park Market Center as Team Leader in the Greater Heartland Region, which also gave him the chance to be closer to family in the area. Under his leadership and unwavering commitment to the conversations, tools, and systems of the Growth Initiative and the Career Growth Initiative, his Market Center saw record growth. The agent count grew phenomenally from 150 to over 500. Meanwhile, the market share increased substantially from fifth in the market to number one in closed volume and units. Agents in his Market Center were able to use this market share to grow their businesses as Keller Williams became valid.

For three of the six years he was a leader in the Greater Heartland Region, Lucas has received the Greater Heartland Region Impact Award. Additionally, he has won three Black Belt Awards for company growth and has led the Region in Profit and Profit Share. Lucas is a frequent instructor in Market Centers across the country and Canada and has had the opportunity to share how he generates results using the Growth Initiative and Career Growth Initiative on stage at Family Reunion and Mega Camp. He was inducted into the Team Leader Hall Of Fame, former director of the Keller Williams Growth Initiative, and former Regional Director for KW in Colorado. He currently has a Place Sales team, helps co-host the Built How podcast and works with helping Place Inc Grow.

When he is not teaching, leading, or coaching, you will find Lucas reading, watching professional sports, and spending time with his family on the lake.
