How many of these answers do you know?

The process for Building or remodeling a home is no different than selling one…

Someone Needs to Teach You a Proven System!

When you first started in the housing business you had a mentor that taught you PROVEN production systems. Over the years, after trail and error, you have probably improved those systems.

Once a year I do just that. My next Sales Symposium, “The Ultimate System for Transforming Cold Prospects into Hot Leads,” is happening Tuesday September 1st in Roseville, MN.

This is a one day “hold your hand” sales strategy packed session that will show you the fastest way to get prospects to only want to buy from you.

I take all the strategies, techniques and ideas that my TOP clients are using to continually rack up sales and bring them right to you.
