As I was previously sales focused, how to recruit and the importance of retention was a new concept in 2012 when I purchased my first brokerage at the age of 25. I enlisted in what I like to call “Kathy Baker’s Boot Camp” for new broker/owners and came out a new person. She’s one of the highest achieving broker/managers in the RE/MAX system and the information she provided at this session was invaluable. Her insights continue to guide me to this day and her workshop was relevant and up-to-date. I'm confident that my work with Kathy was instrumental in my being named as the First Non-U.S. REALTOR® Magazine 30 Under 30 Honoree. I’m a Canadian, but I soon discovered that her effective strategies can be implemented wherever you are in the world. They’re that good. And so is she.
