Mastery Summit: Christina Canters

Christina Canters

I help Gen Ys communicate effectively. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to my podcast ‘Stand Out Get Noticed’​ to experience it for yourself: http://thecmethod.com/listen

I believe Paul J. Meyer was right in saying: “Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.”​ To me, this includes:

– Being a confident and persuasive public speaker
– Effectively pitching your ideas and work to clients, employers & colleagues
– Connecting with and building strong relationships with the people who matter to you
– Landing your dream job with a standout application and killer interview skills

Really, it comes down to crafting a CLEAR MESSAGE whenever you speak, present, write, blog, draw, gesture, sing, tweet, walk into a room…so that you can be understood and get WHAT YOU WANT.
And the best part?  Confidence and communication are skills that can be learned.  And I’m here to show you how.

– Blogging about doing stuff outside my comfort zone at http://christinacanters.com/
– Voice over work (yes, I do answer phone messages)
– Travelling the world and making silly videos to document it
– Playing the ukulele.

Mastery Summit: Jeff Rising

Jeff Rising
I have been working in real estate since 2001. I have been a broker’s assistant, buyer’s agent, associate broker and now I am Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Main Street Realty. I have ranked in the top 10 agents of my market for the last 7 years.

I really love selling real estate. I feel fortunate every day I wake up that I get to sell real estate for a living. There is nothing more rewarding than handing the keys over to someone’s first home, or helping a homeowner get their home sold so they can move up to their next home. I hope my insight and experience can help you in some way.

Mastery Summit: Michael Thorne

Michael Thorne is keenly aware of the gravity of his chosen occupation. He doesn’t take lightly the fact that clients trust him to be a steady hand – and a source of “compassion and passion” – to hold on to through something as life-changing as a move. His daily motivation comes from “the legacy of the people we’re able to help.”

Michael’s relationship to real estate has been a lifelong (and family) affair. Both of his parents were agents, and he started working at a real estate office when he was 15 years old. He got his real estate license at 19. Real estate, he says, allows him to be an ambassador for the community that shaped him.

Michael is known (and beloved) for his curiosity. Michael attributes his notoriety as one of Inman News’ 100 Top Real Estate Innovators to his confidence in two simple words: what if? While his ebullience and fun-loving nature are what make him an esteemed character in the industry, his drive to provide a cutting-edge experience for his clients has made him a pioneer in the expert union of real estate and video.

Video, for Michael, changed everything. And once you get to know him, you see why. Stillness is not a natural state for Michael, and thus his energy and passion translates perfectly to video.

Michael uses his expertise in video not only to sell clients’ homes, but also to showcase the neighbourhood where he has lived his entire life. “I built my business in North Langley, I built my life here – this is home.”. He now lives 10 blocks from the hobby farm where he grew up, 7 blocks away from the high school he graduated from (his was the then-new high school’s first graduating class), and 5 blocks away from where he began his real estate career.

Michael sees himself as owing a great debt. Not monetary, but rather the sense of duty to the community that has given him what he calls his “ridiculously amazing life.” His passion for his home town stems from an eagerness for “other people to be able to experience living here, to raise their kids here and have their kids feel about this area the way I feel about it.” And outside of real estate? Michael describes himself as “[living] at the hockey rink, at the baseball diamond,” coaching his kids. “My dream was to be a great dad.”
