On December 10, it was announced at the FutureCon Tech Conference in Las Vegas that Keller Williams (kw.com) is preparing to open KW Elite, a new Market Center in West Omaha. Jeff Cohn, a native of Omaha and founder of Omaha’s Elite Real Estate Group, will lead the new venture with his team of 35 agents.

The new building is anticipated to create nearly 250 jobs for the Omaha area.
