You were just what the Doctor ordered!! I have heard nothing but positive and rave reviews on your presentation and can see the agents taking action on what they learned already. You packed more information in 3 hours than I think I have ever seen anyone in our industry do and I can say that in 23 years in real estate I have been to hundreds of seminars by some of the top speakers not only in our industry but the sales and motivational industry as well. What a way to prepare our sales force for what I believe will be an awesome 2009! Please feel free to pass my name along should anyone want feedback or a recommendation.
Again, thank you—it was great!!!

Sometimes a person comes into your life for a reason. Your performance yesterday at the Keyes meeting here in Ft. Lauderdale has revitalized my career & my life. You see…..I haven’t been the same since my beloved wife died almost 3 years ago from cancer. We were married for 36 years & I wanted 36 more. My downhill spiral continued. I lost my house to the bank, went bankrupt because of medical bills, lost my car, my health insurance & a year ago I had to merge my real estate company into Keyes. So for 30+ years, I was on top of the world. I even booked you many times for Coldwell Banker & ERA & FAR & the South Broward Board seminars. I have been struggling knowing all the right things to do but not able to do what I know I must. In trying to find out why God did what HE did in taking my wife at such a young age I have renewed my spirituality & passion for God through my Torah learning & going to Temple. So Walter when you said where you have been & what you have done & how you have had to do it over again & even again & all about your life struggles I realized I’m not alone anymore & I’m damn good at what I do. I, like you, only know real estate. So I have recommitted to making a great living & owning a home again & saving money & doing all the “F’s” since that is what is so important in life…to live & share & smile & drink strong coffee & give charity. Thank you!!!
I will always be indebted to you.
Cheryl Nolden, Three Rivers Association of Realtors
You were a tremendous success with your presentation on “How to Survive and Thrive in a Down Market” at our Three Rivers Association of Realtors meeting this week. I received nothing but positive comments from the attendees,who were thrilled to leave the meeting with concrete ideas that they could implement to improve their business and help their clients. You energized, enlightened and entertained our members! Thank you so much for sharing your expertise.
Eileen Liles, Prudential Colorado Real Estate
Good morning Walter,
Your picture on Realty Times make you look much older than you really are! Thank you for the kick in the pants…..just what I needed. Received a call while I was in Colorado Springs about listing a short sale – haven’t done one yet. You gave me good information about deciding if it is a “good” one or not and then how to get it sold.
Tara N. Rogers , RealtyTMS
I wanted to thank you again for your insight during your recent class at the Colorado Association of Realtors State Convention. As a leader of a company dedicated to helping real estate professionals attain the highest level of success, I thought you offered great insight that any agent, in any market, can apply today and work towards greater success.
I would appreciate the opportunity to stay in touch with you.
Lisa F. van den Heuvel, Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties
Dear Mr. Sanford:
Aloha, Walter. It was such a pleasure meeting you yesterday! Thank you so much for your energy and for sharing your years of experience and knowledge in world of real estate. I learned so many new things, which I will definitely be using in my daily routine of my new career. Your concepts and strategies have given me the tools to succeed regardless of the market conditions! You have definitely inspired me, and I hope that if you are in town on your next visit to Hawaii I would have the honor of taking you out to lunch! Take care and have a safe trip back home! Thank you so much for the lovely book! It’s exactly what I wanted!
Kay DuBois, Executive Officer
Dear Mr. Sanford:
I would like to express the Board’s pleasure in your fine presentation of the two courses to our membership.
The audience was comprised of a number of seasoned REALTORS® with high expectations of a trainer. The most frequent comment I heard after the seminar was that they appreciated the fact that you had actually sold real estate and that you were very well informed on the current market. Additional remarks were positive as to the validity of your outlines – that your suggestions could make a difference in a REALTOR’s performance and income. I appreciated your enthusiasm and interactive delivery. In all, yours was a quality performance.
From my initial contact with your staff until you left for the airport, engaging your services was smooth. Additionally, the Board’s generous sponsor was involved from the beginning, and we were both treated with professionalism and courtesy.
| I wish you the best and hope we meet again. Thank you for your consideration.
Michael Ford, Coldwell Banker Heritage Homes
Thank you so very much for a vibrant and interesting program at our Arkansas Coldwell Banker Sales Rally in West Memphis. The information was wonderful and you managed to keep the agents on the edges of their seats wondering what was coming next. Your high-energy speaking style was just what I needed!
Thank you again and I hope you will approve my recommendation of your speaking program to others within my sphere of influence.
Don Peard, RBC Royal Bank
Thanks again for facilitating our Realtor® seminars February 4 & 5, 2008 in Calgary and Edmonton. By the positive reactions from both the attending Realtors® and our RBC Mortgage Specialists, we let far too much time pass between you and RBC working together.
Your experience and knowledge of real estate markets is something all our attendees truly valued. Your disciplined, structured and easy to implement sales routines and systems will make us all more effective and efficient sales people. Walter, I’ve had nothing but positive and favorable reviews about your presentations from the Realtors® who attended.
What I also find so valuable and interesting is how all your systems are so applicable to the mortgage and home equity home financing business that RBC is involved in. I can’t begin to tell you how many of our RBC specialists have committed to implementing your sales systems and processes.
Your seminars allowed RBC to give something back to our valued business partners in the real estate industry. We’re all sincerely appreciative of this. In closing, many thanks for your great, entertaining facilitation skills and professionalism. We definitely won’t let so much time pass before we work together again.
Doranna Owerko, Realty Executives Synergy
Dear Mr. Sanford:
Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed your conference in Edmonton on Tuesday, February 5th, 2008. I always look forward to new ideas. It was certainly informative. Once again, thank you for the opportunity.
Rex Brandstatter , RE/MAX Affiliates
Hi…Walter was great!! I have been at this since 1974. He is a tried and true ‘veteran’. I have been there too, but he has done a LOT more deals than me. I had a great time listening and meeting him.
Got so fired up that I did not sleep much Saturday nite, and came home, went to the office at 7am on SUNDAY and got started on some ideas.
Kim Popek, Exit Realty Advantage
The seminar was great. Walter is very energetic and to the point – loved it!!
David Vaughn, Century 21 Realty Group, Indianapolis, IN
“….That was a really good program yesterday! It was information overload! Several points were great ~ I particularly liked the page for a seller to sign describing their “to-do” list as I call it versus what we are to do, on and on! Anyway, great job and thanks again for bringing Walter Sanford to us!”
Carla Rigsby, CENTURY 21 Realty Group. Anderson, IN
“Thank you for another great conference. Walter Sanford was energetic and delivered some great information as well…”
Terri McGavock, Century 21 Realty Group, Avon, IN
“….Walter was so good and entertaining at the same time. He truly knows what its like to be in the trenches. I purchased his entire 11 piece program and can’t wait to get into it and start putting it into practice. Thank you for bringing him to us.”
Charley Reisert, CENTURY 21 Realty Group, Jeffersonville, IN
“I WON! But just by being at the conference and hearing Walter Sanford — not by winning Powerball. Walter Sanford was great. We all learned so much and came away with so many great ideas to get our sales to where they should be. Thanks!”
Elizabeth Bartlett, Century 21 Realty Group, Bloomington, IN
“….The conference was great and I really enjoyed Walter Sanford. What a dynamic speaker and a great motivator – I could have listened to him all day. Again, thank you very much for another great conference.”
Marge Patterson, CENTURY 21 Realty Group
I just wanted to thank you again for speaking at our Annual Business Conference yesterday. I received so many great comments about your presentation and the material you brought to us. It was filled with good, common sense ideas that if implemented, will raise the production of each and every sales associate in our company. It will enable us to reach our 2008 goal of 11,000 units closed. Your message was positive, motivational but full of great ideas all at the same time. Thanks again. I am looking forward to picking up some of your classes at the International CENTURY 21 convention.
Bill Craig , Re/MAX Realty Associates
Thank you so much for leading our session on Changing Your Income in a Changing Market. Your thoughts and enthusiasm is exactly what we needed. Our associates came away with numerous zero cost ideas on how to increase their production, effectiveness and profitability. Timing this seminar in December helped to energize our office through the holidays and hit the ground running in January. Walter, anytime I can be of assistance to you, please feel free to call.
Yoko Mendelson , Re/MAX
Happy New Year! Wishing you a very healthy and successful year! Thank you very much for a great gift, “Beating the Competition Every Time.” I love it. Thank you very much for remembering me and you have kept the promise. 2007 was the best year. I had so many miracles. I became a top producer. I just shifted my mind and then my attitude was changed. I love me, myself and my job. Now I have a secret weapon. (the kit I received from you) I’m very sure 2008 will be the greatest year. Again, thank you very much.
