Bernhard Keller was born and raised in Germany. He graduated with a degree in Business at Nagold University, Germany. After graduation, Bernhard worked in Marketing and Advertising at Versace, New York. As a young man, Bernhard was exposed to the real estate industry through his uncle who managed various apartment buildings in Berlin, Germany. The thought of getting into the real estate industry piqued his interest, and eventually prompted him to change his career.
In 1998, Bernhard started his Real Estate career with Coldwell Banker and then Realty Executives. Whilst actively working in real estate, Bernhard attended night classes at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth and holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration. He started his own rental firm, Leighton Rentals, in 2005 and then his own brokerage, Leighton Realty, in 2012. Bernhard moved from being an active Sales Agent in 2011 to a more technical role in the organization, focusing on business development and operations. He merged Leighton Realty with Keller Williams Realty in 2022, forming the Leighton Team.
Bernhard and his wife Mercedes have two teenaged daughters Clara and Adriana. When not working, he loves spending time with his family, kite surfing and fishing.
