Exciting News!

Education & Training with Real Estate Base Camp

After 35 years in real estate, 3O of which was spent training real estate professionals, I get to retire. Just think, I have lived every woman’s fantasy: I have been paid to talk for the past 30 years!  Now it is time to do some other things, like kayaking, sailing, painting and spending more time with family.  What I am doing now besides my leisure activities are some special projects, writing, one off speaking engagements ... and, so that I don’t lose touch with you – my contact information is claudiawicks@msn.com.

I consider myself extremely lucky that I have been able to do what I absolutely love - train real estate professionals. I truly appreciate your help, support, friendship and laughter. What fun! Thank you sincerely for a wonderful career.

The other exciting news is that the popular Real Estate Base Camp classes on generating leads, business development, Internet marketing and social media will still be available. Dave Porter, a good friend and exceptional trainer, is taking over the business.  As the new CEO, he—and his staff—will teach the classes, manage the business and post informative, helpful training blogs. He is eminently qualified.Claudia and Dave

Hi Claudia,

I got my hands on your book in 2009.

I read it twice. The second time, I would read a chapter - go do everything you said, then read the next chapter.
It has defined my business in this new environment.
