I have been licensed in Real Estate since December 1983. Over the years, I sold many new and resale residential homes along with a few commercial transactions. I was the broker/owner of a family real estate business from 2005 – 2013. Today I am an associate broker license in Maryland. From 2016 -2018 , I served as a Member of the Board of Director for the Prince George’s County Association of Realtors. I also served for a number of years as the Education Committee Chair at the same Board. Since 2004, I have been privileged to teach both pre-licensing for salespersons and pre-likening for brokers along with thousands of Maryland Continuing Education (CE) classes. Teaching and Training is one of my life long passions. The greatest compliment any agent gives me is that I am able to Teach, Entertain and Motivate them in the CE class. I love helping real estate agents both “survive” and “thrive” in this challenging yet rewarding real estate business.
I was given a special gift back in 1990. That was when I was introduced to Floyd Wickman’s training program. You see, in 1990 Floyd showed me the way to prosper in any real estate market. Floyd explained, to me, that being a real estate professional is not about luck but about learning certain skill sets, selling secrets. No agent should ever be a victim, in any real estate market. Market conditions are just that, conditions. You can always learn how to work through the market conditions. I have been applying the skill sets that Floyd shared with me for over a quarter of a century now. Yes, I have been able to both “survive” and “thrive” in many different real estate markets because of the secrets given to me by Floyd Wickman. I have never had to be a victim of any market condition.
Now, one can only imagine how excited I am to be a member of the Floyd Wickman Team family and be one of Floyd’s trainers. You know, I can hardly wait to pass along to you Floyd’s skill sets, the ones that Floyd shared with me so many years ago. Call me and let me show you how in 42 days you change your life, in any market. If you want to both “survive” and “thrive”, call me today.
