Mastery Summit: Jennifer Allan-Hagedorn

Jennifer Allan-Hagedorn began her writing career after ten years of selling real estate successfully in Denver, Colorado.  She was dismayed at the low level of professionalism she frequently encountered in the real estate industry and, with her “soulful” message, hopes to encourage the real estate community to self correct the negative stereotypes of the profession.

Jennifer’s message to agents is that they should strive to be competent real estate advisers, rather than competent real estate prospectors.  She urges agents to respect the intelligence of their clients, rather than attempt to insult that intelligence with aggressive closing techniques.  She preaches that agents should appreciate the significant commissions paid by their clients, rather than complain that they, themselves, are not appreciated.

Allan-Hagedorn is the author of seven books about real estate and one of the industry’s most popular bloggers. She is also an avid dog rescuer in the Panhandle of Florida.

Mastery Summit: Richard Robbins

Richard Robbins is Co-founder and CEO of Richard Robbins International, a global sales and business coaching organization that amassed over $50 million dollars in revenue worldwide in its first ten years alone.  The organization’s explosive 3000% growth is attributed largely to the transformational impact Richard Robbins’ unique methodologies have had, and continue to have, on the businesses and lives of thousands of sales professionals, entrepreneurs and leaders at all levels worldwide.

Born of humble roots in the small town of Peterborough, Ontario (Canada), Richard enthusiastically began a career in real estate sales at the age of 24.  After four record-breaking years including hitting a six figure income in his first year and every year after that, Richard decided it was time for a change.  In 1989, Richard opened his own real estate brokerage some 90 miles from his small town and amidst one of the worst real-estate recessions the Country had ever seen.

Richard was undeterred by the enormous obstacles and in just 3 years, he successfully ranked among the top 1% of all REALTORS® in his marketplace and grew a powerhouse brokerage that captured 12% market share.  Richard’s extraordinary leadership and innate ability to inspire peak performance in his fellow agents, also lead his successful brokerage of only 20 agents to achieve the “highest production per agent” of any brokerage within its trading area.  It was here that Richard discovered a profound passion for speaking and helping others to achieve goals they never thought possible.  Today, Richard is an author, business mentor and sought-after expert in the field of personal and professional performance.  He is best described by his audiences as the epitome of a true integrity-powered leader, and considers it his greatest honour to have had the opportunity to ignite the lives of over 250,000 audience members thus far.

On a personal note, Richard believes life is to be experienced at every opportunity.  From flying a fighter jet through the mountains of South Africa to heli-skiing at the peaks of Whistler, racing NASCAR with his brothers and dad, and coming face-to-face with sharks some 80 feet below sea level – Richard seizes each and every opportunity to live life BIG.

Richard and his wife, Sue, Co-founder and Managing Director at Richard Robbins International, reside in Markham, Ontario, with their two extraordinary teenagers, Jaimie and Tanner.  The Robbins’ are avid readers, fitness/health enthusiasts and personal development junkies who truly believe there’s no place like home.
