Welcome Jeff Turner as a Mentor and Advisor

I’ve known Jeff Turner a long time. I can’t remember exactly the first time we met in person, but it was in 2006 or 2007 at a real estate conference. Over the course of the past 7 years, I’ve spent time with him in multiple cities all over the country — and been to his house outside of LA in Santa Clarita once. I’ve even spent some time at Rocky’s orphanage in Kenya (see here and here).

Point being. He is no stranger.

Far from it.

He’s one of the people in the real estate industry I truly, deeply respect. If you know Jeff personally, or even from afar, that won’t surprise you in the slightest.

Last week, I watched his CRS presentation from 2012:

I highly encourage you to spend the hour and watch it, or at least put it on in the background as you work. As I mentioned last week, he completely and utterly understands the power of community. Like Jeff, community is what I crave in my life.

What did I do after watching?

I listened to his advice of course, which is to find a mentor who shares my core values — and I emailed Jeff to ask him whether he’d be willing.

Less than 20 minutes later, I was fortunate to get a yes in response. The reasons he’s a good match are not really even a question. They include, among others, 25 years of business experience, a focus on impact & helping others, and a deep understanding of community. Jeff’s bio has been added to our team page.

Welcome to the team, and thank you for your support.
