Erik Kaiser, RE/MAX Collection

Thank you for the opportunity to hear you speak in Huntington Beach at Sea Cliff Country Club. I got a lot out of it. Funny, I grew up in Long Beach as well and remember your office back in the day. All the best continued success!


Tony Spano, President, Your Home Publishing, Inc.

Hello Walter,

I just wanted to drop you a note telling you how happy we are with your presentation at our Power Listers Seminar in Sarasota.

The material was professional and very informative. We have heard nothing but rave reviews from those that attended. Not only has the seminar brought us in contact with new clients, the existing clients we invited felt it the seminar showed our commitment to helping them be more successful.

Also, Cyndi was extremely helpful in organizing the event and gave us a lot of great information to help make it a big success.

We look forward to working with you in the future.


Michael Deaver, Real Estate Speaker

Walter, I walked back with you after your last workshop yesterday. The purpose of my email is to thank you.

I appreciate your candid insight into the speaking field as we were walking back. You have got great material and systems that I knew. This was the first time I had seen you speak. What stood out with me is how you deliver a straight to the point presentation packed with info scripts and ideas, and then in our conversation are supportive encouraging and giving. This is character. Know that when I am on the other side I too endeavor to give back in this way to future aspiring speakers. You get it. And I appreciate it.

I’m in your corner. I wish you continued success and if there is a connection I can make for you or something else I can do to help, please let me know.



Terry Murphy, Real Estate Speaker

To Walter:

The gifts of giving with love to others with return to you a hundred fold. Thank you for a new level of life.


Brian Tracy, Real Estate Speaker

Dear Walter,

It was a pleasure to attend your seminar in San Francisco on Thursday. You are a truly excellent speaker and by the time you were finished, I was excited about getting into residential real estate! You are doing good work in the world.

I wish you the very best of continued success in everything you do. I’m sure our paths will cross again. Good luck!


Tony Robbins, Motivational Speaker

Dear Walter,

Welcome to the Big Island! We are thrilled and honored to have you as a speaker this year. We know that in sharing your knowledge, our participants’ lives will be changed forever and know that this will be an incredible experience for you also.

Thank you for being a memorable part of Financial Mastery.


Mike Fortin, The Platinum Group REALTORS®

Walter,

Thank you for your words of wisdom and experience. I have already benefited from some of the techniques in your materials. My return on investment will be huge! Thanks again.


Irv Tremblay, Century 21

Dear Walter:

This year I was fortunate enough to be the #1 Century 21 agent in Regina and the # 5 agent in Canada . This is no small feat considering we are the Number One Firm in Canada .

Walter I could not have done this without you. I used you as a coach way back in 1993 and I still use your material and quote you all the time. My systems I use in my office as well as the Assistants Training Program are still the ones you taught me.

Walter thanks again, your the greatest!


Mike and Shayna Goldstein, Coldwell Banker

Working with Walter Sanford has been a tremendous opportunity. Walter’s deep knowledge of business and more specifically “real estate” is invaluable. His wide scope of knowledge in the world of real estate has helped my wife and I immensely. We were already doing over 200+ transactions on an annual basis.

Walter wears many hats for us. He’s first and foremost our friend, but in addition to that he has become a mentor, a teacher, a coach, a strategist, a visionary, and most importantly, the voice of sound judgment. The guidance he can bring to a real estate professional is second to none.

If developing a strong business model for your real estate business along with making money is important to you, call Walter. It will be the most profitable cold call you’ll ever make! We know this from personal experience.



Bruce Hackel, RE/MAX South Suburban

As a 30+ year veteran, I hesitated to commit the time and money to a coaching program. I have made it a point to attend seminars of all the major real estate speakers for years and have come back to my office to apply as many of the ideas as possible.

After six months of coaching with Walter, I can honestly say it has been worth every penny. His honesty, enthusiasm, willingness to listen, and down-to-earth approach make the program special.

We have incorporated our team members into the conversations enabling me to focus on running my business instead of only working in my business.

I encourage anyone looking for consistent, power-packed ideas on daily lead generation to talk to Walter and implement his stuff. It works!


Kim Davis, Keller Williams

By the way, I’ve been going through your letters and checklists, and I am astounded! What an incredible goldmine of experience and wisdom I have stumbled upon. When I met you at the NAR Convention, walking into your seminar, you said to me, “Well, I won’t change your life today, but I hope you’ll take something away from it.” You were wrong, Walter (and I am so very thankful)! I’m so excited about all the things I am learning and all the changes I am making as a result of it. You rule!


Jim d’Artenay, Prudential Carolina

Thanks I love it! That is the punch we needed. I will change the letter in the morning. Great stuff! You are the BEST!


Blake Mayes, RE/MAX

Dear Walter,
I wanted to write this letter to give you an update on my current progress, where I ended up for the year and next year’s goals as well.

First, without sounding odd, I want to start with a thank you. I need to say thank you for changing my life and giving me the tools to enable me to become a well-known name in my area. Your systems and training has not only changed my business, but also helped with my self-esteem, my investment strategies, and retirement planning.

In 1995 my production was less than two million. In 1996 it was six million, and 6.7 million in 1997. You and I started training in late 1997 and so 1998 was my first full year with you. Let me tell you what has happened this year.

My production for 1998 ended at just over 11 million! WOW! What a difference! My systems are still building, however I have mastered the ones that are implemented and still continue to implement more. My business has taken a turn that I didn’t feel would happen so fast. I will end up #8 in the state for all REALTORS® and #3 in the state for RE/MAX agents!

This year was not only successful as a REALTOR®, but in all other aspects in my life. I purchased the building my company was leasing for $400,000 below appraisal! Now I feel I am working for something far more important than just keeping my real estate office operating. The transaction was tough; however after it closed, the seller was so impressed with my skills, that he signed a buyer/broker agreement with me to be his agent. He purchases commercial buildings and so far just in December and January, we have written three deals that are over $3,000,000 in production. That’s just the beginning! Last week I wrote and had accepted a $5,000,000 transaction as well. In addition, I have several other deals in the works, which means that so far this year I have $9,000,000 pending!

Aside from my business going crazy, I have utilized your real estate acquisition program and acquired seven rentals and two commercial buildings. Each one with the formula you gave me. They are 100% leased and cash flowing wonderfully. Ironically, I looked at over twenty properties this year, but the formula helps the decision become very black and white. If it doesn’t work, I don’t buy it. If it does work, I buy it. I am only twenty-six years old, and it gives me a great sense of security to know that by the age of fifty-six, my rentals will be paid off and I will be able to retire a wealthy person. That kind of security helps me to go to work each day a more effective REALTOR® and I enjoy my job so much more. I want to thank you for that.

As great as all this sounds, I have taken it one stop further and with the help of your direction, I have opened an SEP program. In addition I have hired a financial advisor and started a stock, mutual fund, bond, and money market portfolio. I started it in early May and to my surprise the account was worth over $70,000 by year-end! You used to tell me that I needed to start having my money work for me instead of me working for my money. I have to admit — I didn’t know what that meant until now.

Part of your training included my personal and mental health. I have followed your every word and every piece of advice this year and this was no different. I now work with a personal trainer three times a week. I have lost 30 pounds, have a “body builder’s” body, quit smoking, and overall feel and look better than I ever had in my entire life.

As far as my training, I want to continue with it. I am looking forward to the future and things are moving and I don’t want to slow down. What I would like to see my training do this year is to help me perfect my systems and the overall look of my business. I would like to meet with you and have you review everything I have done. I would like to leave each visit with your opinions of what I have been doing and what I need to start doing. Please let me know your thoughts on this and if that works for you, let me know what the cost will be.

Once again, I want to say thank you so much for everything. There is no way I could have done this without your help and guidance. I wish that every person that hears you speak could somehow understand how your systems and advice could change their lives. If you ever have somebody who is unsure, please give them my number. I want to tell the world about these programs. There is no reason that everybody can’t have a wonderful, happy and financially profitable future in this business.
