I first heard Greg speak at the 2012 Entrepreneurs conference last October. The break out session he led was inspiring. His tips helped us finish out the 4th quarter strong. The momentum has our business booming into 2013. I especially found his book list to be helpful. When I found out that he would be teaching a seminar on Jan 18th I knew that I had to be there. I also brought my business partners

Your seminar was presented from a real world transactional perspective by a successful real estate professional. The materials took me from the beginning to end of the representation process, providing me with all the necessary presentation and transactional forms that will save me valuable time and effort.
