Feedback from Speaking Engagements
The results speak for themselves.
I just wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic webinar. At the last count, more than 200 people registered for it. The early feedback from evaluations shows that each and every person so far rated you as excellent--a score of five out of five. That has never happened before. You did an amazing job. You are so warm and articulate. This recording will be a valuable overview of databases for many less experienced agents for years to come!
– Barbara Kidzus, Education Manager- Council of Residential Specialists
Sasha, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your incredible expertise and knowledge with our members during Sell-a-bration – I received so much feedback from members (AND exhibitors!) about your session and how wonderful it was, it was just validation that we have the best and smartest members and I wanted to make sure you heard it from as many people as possible!
– Stephanie Crain, Director of Business Development, Certified Residential Specialists
My life has been real estate for 30 years (sales, management, teaching, coaching and speaking). After meeting Sasha and listening to her, I was overly impressed with her demeanor and her caring, yet business oriented, style. Sasha and her team have created a very impressive, systemized, yet heartfelt business model. And, she cares about and gives back to her community. Sasha is the real deal and I am blessed to have the opportunity to learn from her.
– Jackie Beyke Leavenworth
I met Sasha at Sell-A-Bration Coronado. Amazing teacher who gave an amazing presentation. I was impressed with her knowledge, passion and how business oriented she is. She puts it with her own personal touch. I'm looking forward to more opportunities at conferences to learn from her.
- Cari Knapp
!!! Fantástica conferencia. Gracias por todo tu tiempo !!!
You rock, Sasha! You leave great fans here: Please come back soon!
- Juan Miguel Seguro and Fernando Garcia Erviti (Inmocionante - Madrid, Spain.)
I met Sasha at the recent Certified Residential Specialists convention in San Diego, where Sasha was a panelist and speaker. I was so impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and attitude of getting things done in a first-class way. In my opinion, Sasha was one of the top presenters at this convention.
– Sherrie Au
After a 20+ year successful Real Estate Practice in Indiana, we closed shop and started from scratch in Tucson. You've reinforced our commitment to carry on with our plans and have given us great tools & ideas as well as new techniques we'll be implementing. Your presentation at Sell-a-bration was superb. We'll ride on your coat tails any day. KUDOS!
– Christine Schaefer
You’re a true professional, thank you for taking the time to deliver such great information about how you run your business team without conjecture on how others may run theirs. Your insight was incredible, and was delivered impeccably. I wanted to email you personally to say thank you for presenting one of the best 60 minute seminars I’ve ever attended. You got started on time and without much fanfare, and dove right into your material. You mixed your attention between your material, while addressing questions on the fly from the audience without skipping a beat.
– Chuck Hicks
Your presentation was excellent. It was both motivational and inspiring. It covered all aspects of your listing marketing efforts and also gave our top sales associates additional new ideas to implement in their business plans. We truly appreciate your down to earth style and your very successful business acumen. You more than fulfilled my expectations and it was such a pleasure to meet you and listen to your wonderful ideas.
- Robin Peterson
Sasha is the complete package--- Motivational, Informational, Engaging and Entertaining! She can control the room very effectively and keep everyone engaged during the whole presentation. You will walk away from her presentation as a renewed person ready to succeed at a higher level in our challenging real estate business. She packs what could be a two day seminar into two hours.
I had the privilege of hearing Sasha Farmer present at the 2016 CRS Sell-a-bration. When I signed up for Sell-a-bration I had a single goal in mind: To learn all I can learn about listings. As the first class at the conference I was blown away with all the content she provided! Not only did she provide me with practical advice about listing homes but she provided me with a blue print on how to systematize my business!
If you're looking for a speaker who is personable, engaging and generous then look no further than Sasha Farmer! Your audience/employees will come away from the speech entertained and with information they can start applying immediately.
In today's real estate world it's easy for newer agents to get lost in the constant barrage of promises to help build your business and expand your reach. After feeling fleeced more than once I became reluctant to spend money to boost my business because I didn't want to feel "taken" again. Howver, Coach Sasha's presentation was something completely different. In under an hour I'd learned multiple best practices and tools (with proven results!) that genuinely make sense. I look forward to learning more from Coach Sasha and her team!
This presentation was a wake-up call to get our team organized again...we have gotten so busy that we don't stop to develop materials that will help us with every listing . It was very, very helpful to us. We liked the speed of presentation, and the very specific details. We are setting new goals based on your talk with our group.
- Joyce Peterson
Sasha's no nonsense style makes you take notice of how you are doing business. It shows there are a multitude of ways to be successful, and she can help lead you down one of those rosy paths to the future. She covered a lot of ground and it got the juices flowing on what we can do better.
- Chad Larsen
Amazing. Inspirational. Reinvigorating. I attend multiple Realtor, franchise and affinity group conventions annually. This was one of my favorite sessions of all-time. I can't express enough how relevant and timely Sasha is with tactics, actual instructions, you can implement TODAY to increase your net income! Move over Barbara Corcoran -- real estate has a new darling!
-Eric Axelson, Broker/Instructor, NAGLREP Board of Directors
Sasha's presentation "Crushing the Competition at the Listing Table" is a 55 minute bible of ingenious new ideas for winning the listing, and refreshing applications of core listing concepts.
Your presentation was captivating and motivational. I couldn’t believe that 60 minutes could go so quickly! I was so impressed that you are willing and anxious to share the methods you used to obtain and maintain a successful business. Thank you!!
Sasha's presentation was insightful and truly outside the box thinking. By putting a twist on some of the traditional marketing avenues she has provided a system for listing agents to get ahead of their competition.
