Thank you for your interest in my coaching program. I am primarily a real estate business coach, which means that while I can address and assist you with personal issues, my main focus is on your real estate business. I coach you on developing a business plan and specific goals to accomplish as well as establishing concrete plans of action to reach those goals. I focus on issues such as time management, negotiation skills, communication skills, scripts and dialogues for use on the phone or in person, marketing and sales, presentation skills, and more. I provide structure, support, and accountability to help you bridge the gap between where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow. Here is how my program works (all coaching is done over the phone):
- First, we do a free sample session of coaching to see if we’re a match. You will most likely make some promises to take action over the next week or two.
- Then, we schedule a follow up call to hold you accountable to those promises.
- At that point, if you want to coach with me, I assign you homework, which usually consists of a financial snapshot of your business over the previous year, your goals for the coming year, your plan of action to accomplish those goals, etc.
- Then we begin coaching. You get two, 45-minute calls per month plus unlimited phone and email contact with me on an as-needed basis between calls You will be responsible for sending me a Pre-call Tracking Form the day before each call to update me on your progress, as well as an update on your goals. This will make our calls that much more powerful and effective.
- I will also send you articles and tips and refer you to websites, books, and other resources I have found useful. And upon your approval, if I don’t know the answer to any of your questions, I will send your request for assistance out to my other clients for their advice and feedback.
All coaching calls are strictly confidential, and I do not share your information with anyone.You, however, may take the information, insights, knowledge, etc. from the calls and share them with whomever you choose.
For more information or to arrange for a free introductory Coaching Session please call Brad at 510-537-0107, email at [email protected], or enter your contact information below. All information is confidential and we will respond within 48 hours to your request. Thank you!
Following are a list of my most popular workshops and presentations. Other topics are available upon request.All programs are tailored to meet the specific needs of your business:
- The Platinum Rule: Treat Other People the Way They Want to be Treated!
People have different personality styles, and therefore tend to communicate differently.By observing their style, and adjusting yours, you can establish rapport more quickly, communicate better, and enhance your relationships.This increased ability to communicate reduces tension, helps build better work teams, increases sales, and leads to more effective and productive relationships.

- You Can’t Always Get What You Want, But You Can Get What You Need!

A note from Brad:
To start you off, I am offering a FREE 20-page e-book on Time Management (it’s actually a chapter I wrote from a larger book entitled Blueprint for Success: 12 Powerhouse Professionals, which includes chapters from Ken Blanchard and Stephen Covey as well).
My chapter focuses on what I believe is the #1 impediment to running a successful real estate practice, and that is the effective and efficient use of time. I talk about goals, how to keep a time log to track where your precious time really goes, how to prioritize, how to effectively use To-Do lists and planners, how to plan a week at a time, dealing with drop-in visitors and telephone interruptions, the 7 steps to masterful delegation, 10 tips for overcoming procrastination, ideas for running more effective meetings, and a few suggestions for improving your communication skills.
I believe that this chapter alone, if you read it thoroughly and implement the ideas I’ve presented, will make a huge difference in how you schedule and plan your weekly activities, and will result in more productive use of your time and greater accomplishment of your goals. A wonderful side benefit is a dramatic decrease in stress! [Download coming soon]
