Testimonials: what a few people have to say about René Fabre
"Rene Fabre is by far the most savvy and creative marketer that I know-period. He is innovative and utilizes his depth of industry knowledge to develop competitive strategies for both the people he works with and the clients he works for as a title professional. He integrates technology with the human experience to create thought provoking writing and videos meant to teach businesses how to find their voice in a very noisy world."
Janet Matzke - Sr Account Manager, First American Title, Tacoma, Washington
“René is a pioneer in the application of new web tools for marketing. He's got a creative mind and the kind of get-it-done attitude that makes people want to sit up and listen. Do listen. You'll be glad you did.”
Meri Walker - The Virtual Meeting Coach, Ashland, Oregon
“René is one of the rare people in the industry that really walks the walk when it comes to his teachings. To be honest it really isn't teaching that he does, he has more of a conversation with the groups he meets and once to pass on the knowledge that he gathers day in and day out trying to help agents and mortgage officers take their business to the next level in this age of the internet.
René and I met online and we finally met in person in the spring of 2009 at an event in Portland, I've now been to three of his events and have to say each time we have taught each other something new. He is a person that is never satisfied with his present online image or knowledge and is always searching for more and then shares it with the world!
If you ever get a chance to attend one of René events, I suggest you do, because you will learn something about web 2.0 and how it can increase your business, no matter what business you are in.”
Todd Clark - Broker/Sales Coach... Knipe Realty, Tigard, Oregon
