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.

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.”

Mastery Summit: Jeff Dowler

Jeff Dowler

After 15 years in corporate Human Resources positions, my wife and I opened a successful art gallery in Cambridge, MA.  Shortly thereafter I obtained my real estate license and began working for RE/MAX Destiny in Cambridge, home of Harvard University and MIT, in 2002.

In the Spring of 2005 my wife and I made the decision to relocate to Carlsbad California.  We bought our 9th home in the La Costa area of Carlsbad to be near the beach, and not too long a drive to San Diego, or LA where our daughter was in school.

After obtaining my California real estate license I joined RE/MAX Associates in Encinitas in June 2005, which later became RE/MAX Moonlight Beach, created after RE/MAX Associates was restructured in 2008.  In January 2011 I made the move to a new brokerage, SOLUTIONS REAL ESTATE, shortly after they opened their first California office in Carlsbad, where I am today.

I have been a primary home buyer and seller 10 times, and have also bought and sold a business condo and 2 vacation properties, one waterfront, in 4 different states.  I understand the practical and emotional issues of buying and selling from the consumer’s perspective, and have had some difficult transactions to navigate, all of which benefits my clients.

I have relocated multiple times, most recently from Boston to Carlsbad, and have moved very young children, pets, and cars.  I am also familiar with the business side of relocation from my years as a Human Resources professional, including corporate relocation programs and packages, and working with relocation companies.  I understand the relocation process very well and specialize in working with buyers and sellers who are making significant moves to or from Southern California.

I am 1 of about 3% of all REALTORS with the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, which required advanced training in technology, working with referrals, and listing and buying strategies, and had rigorous production requirements.  I have been a CRS since 2005 and have been active in the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS) organization at the state level since earning the designation.

I have served in every position on the Board of Directors for the Southern California Chapter of CRS, including President for 2011 when we won the Chapter of the Year Award.  I am also active on a National level, serving as Chair of the Educational Forum for the National CRS Organization for 2014, and Vice Chair for the Membership Development Committee in 2015; I will Chair that committee in 2016. I have been Regional Vice President for 2014 and 2015, working with the 4 state CRS Chapters in New England, and will serve in that role again for 2016.

Lastly, I believe strongly in ongoing education and learning, and stay current with technology and changes in our business through webinars, classes, and by attending regional and national conferences.  Education is also essential for buyers and sellers, and I author 2 different consumer blogs; I’ve written several thousand articles since 2006 about the North San Diego County area, neighborhoods, the local housing market, and what consumers need to know about the buying and selling process.

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.
