“CSD’s training and business planning products are extremely helpful. They helped me when I was launching my firm.”

“The training system and program that John developed has been instrumental in the success of the agents working under me as well as in my own personal success when I was an agent-in-training. He has a keen ability for taking nuanced concepts and clarifying them to a point that anyone can understand. In addition to his skill at developing training and development materials and programs, John is also one of the most intelligent individuals I have ever met as well as a truly great guy. I recommend him wholeheartedly.”

After just a couple of sessions with a Custom Skills Development coach, I refocused my efforts to take advantage of the unique market opportunities that I had in front of me. As a result of this, within just a few months my listing inventory went from $2 million to over $200 million. I wholeheartedly recommend CSD to commercial real estate professionals that want to expand their practices.

CSD’s experience and skill in coaching, training and motivating real estate salespeople to perform up to and even beyond their capabilities have helped me do more business. Their insights have helped me to more competently counsel my clients while motivating me in a constantly changing real estate and financial world.

 [Andrew Chana - a commercial real estate broker in Southern California] Unlike most agents, I’ve built my real estate business twice — once in the Midwest and again here in Southern California. Both times, I was able to lean on the things I learned from my coaching interactions and from the training materials that CSD prepared for me. Their support and insights helped me to not only survive a challenging time in our industry, but to come out of it with a growing, thriving business.
