At Real Estate Investments for Women (REIW) we know you want to break free from feeling anxious along with a deep sense of frustration from not being able to reach financial independence and a sense of personal security.
In order to do that you need a Trusted Guide to help you gain the knowledge required to succeed as a successful real estate investor.
We work with women who desire success in real estate investing. We offer real estate investment training courses and support in a community of proven investors and like-minded women.
We are Laura and Liz, a mother and daughter team, and the founders of this program for women by women. We have combined experience of over 30 years in the real estate investing business and are ready to be your guide.
We’ve experienced first-hand that it is POSSIBLE to create wealth with real estate while pursuing our bigger WHY and have a POSITIVE impact on the lives of others.
While a lot of women have a strong desire to succeed in their own business, fear or lack of proper knowledge or encouragement become dream crushers.
I'm a sales expert, performance coach and motivational speaker and I currently serve as the chair of the AgentAdvice.com Agent Editorial Board. I've spent my entire adult life working in the real estate industry and have become known as "the guy to hire when you need to motivate and inspire". I coach real estate salespeople to develop a positive and powerful mindset, believe in themselves and I make them exceptionally good at selling.
People come to me looking for a way to fulfill the vision that was in their head when they first got their license. Pretty quickly they learn to control their activities, their mindset and their income. They learn that sales is an art-form which can be mastered and they eliminate any and all fear around being seen as a "salesperson". Because of that, they develop pride in their skills and use them to serve from the heart.

Using a very practical, down-to-earth approach in both his coaching and training, Brad brings over 40 years experience in a number of fields to his work.
Utilizing a lot of humor and audience participation in his custom designed seminars, he gets the job done by working closely with the client in the beginning to figure out “the gap” between where the participants are and where the company wants them to be at the end of the training.
Likewise with his coaching clients, Brad spends a significant amount of time up front determining what the clients’ goals are, and then designing a program to reach those goals. He believes that the client drives the agenda – Brad is the coach/trainer, the client is the performer.
Brad offers one-on-one coaching with entrepreneurs, executives, and sole proprietors to hold them accountable, provide structure and support, and impact their effectiveness and productivity.
He requires that clients sign on for a minimum of 6 months of coaching, believing that they need to make a real commitment to the process in order to derive any benefit.
After an initial intake, homework assignment, and a possible 2-hour face-to-face session, Brad then works with them either weekly or bi-weekly over the phone for the next 6 months. As a testament to his success, most clients stay on for much longer than that (2-3 years is not uncommon).
In addition to his graduate work in counseling, Brad has hundreds of hours of training as a mediator and negotiator, as well as being certified to teach a number of courses for other training organizations.
He has also studied coaching with Patricia McDade of the Entrepreneurial Edge, and is a certified Corporate Business Coach from Corporate Coach University.
He has served as a volunteer mediator with the Hayward Area Mediation Service, is a founding board member of the Berkeley Dispute Resolution Service, and was the Vice President of Professional Development for the Mt. Diablo Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development.
He also served for 6 years on the Castro Valley/Eden Area Chamber of Commerce, is the past President of the Bay East Association of Realtors Foundation, and is past Chair of the Affiliate Committee.
Brad’s earlier career included 10 years as a teacher of New Games and cooperative sports, where he taught students and other teachers the fundamentals of a win-win approach to sports.
He also produced a nationally distributed video entitled Parachute Games. He also spent 5 years working with a clinical psychologist and a mediator, marketing their services to the corporate world while conducting seminars and mediations as well as coaching clients on career and business development.
He also spent 6 years leading seminars for the Fred Pryor Seminar Company, and has taught in front of over 65,000 people throughout his career in 27 of the United States as well as 19 foreign countries. He currently is a land banking consultant, helping patient investors build generational wealth by investing in land.
Brad enjoys traveling nationally and internationally, working out at the gym, reading, and spending time with his wife and 25-year-old daughter, especially camping and hiking. He has a BS in Philosophy and Psychology from MIT and an MA in Education from the University of California at Berkeley.
He is also a certified negotiator and mediator with National Center Associates, and is certified to teach the Tony Alessandra Platinum Rule Workshop.
He also is versed in administering and interpreting the DISC Personality Profile as well as the Workplace Motivators Profile, and teaches negotiation skills, how to achieve work life balance, time management, how to design and deliver powerful presentations, how to run better meetings, stress management, customer service, communication skills, and conflict resolution.
He is the author of the nationally sold book Just Sold! The Real Estate Professional's Guide to Selling More in Less Time, and he recently received the Bay East Association of Realtors Affiliate of the Year award for 2014. He's also spoken at the National Association of Realtors 2016 Conference and again in November, 2017.
And he recently changed careers in 2018 to become a land banking consultant, helping patient investors diversify their portfolios by investing in land strategically placed in the path of growth, holding, and then selling to developers to build generational and legacy wealth.
