Here’s what people are saying about us

As a Past President of the Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS® I was selected to chair our Search Committee when it was time to hire a new AE for our Association. This was the second time I served on a search committee over the years, so I had experience with the process. We decided to hire a facilitator to help us stay on track and to guard against any liability in the hiring process. We did our due diligence and interviewed a few facilitators and ultimately decided on hiring Alice Martin.  Alice was an excellent choice for our Association.  She helped immensely with the entire process from setting up the initial ad to be posted on all message boards to developing the educational and background criteria for the potential candidate.  She assisted in developing interview questions and created a scoring system for us to use during the interview process.  She was also instrumental with analyzing the candidates background and helped us to reach our ultimate hiring conclusion.  I would strongly recommend considering Alice Martin and am happy to provide this recommendation and review. Frank Jacovini, Chairman, Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS Search Committee

“I have known Alice for many years as a colleague and an association executive whose association hired her to do programs for us. She was always professional and knowledgeable as she presented information and tips for our members. Most recently when I underwent over 60 search processes while looking for the perfect job, I found Alice’s to be the best. You would benefit by engaging her executive search services.

When the Lousiana REALTORS Association engaged her services, each time she put her personal touch on the presentations and the audience went away informed, educated and most of all they know that Alice Martin cares about their success and that she is their partner in succeeding with their programs. – Malcolm Young, RCE, CAE, fromer Executive Director, Tennesee Real Estate Commission and former CEO, Louisiana Association of REALTORS®.

“In 2014, the Las Cruces Association interviewed several professionals to facilitate our strategic planning. Alice quickly rose to the top of the list due to her professionalism, her understanding of our industry, and her calm, get this accomplished attitude.
She worked with the diverse Association leadership where there were vast differences of perceptions and leadership styles. She was able to reach a consensus with the group and the product that was produced by Alice, the Strategic Plan, was designed to be a living guide to continuous improvement for the organization.
I would highly recommend her wisdom and expertise to any group looking for assistance in facilitating the hard decisions that Leadership must make. 
Doris Nurenburg, Chief Executive Officer, North Carolina Regional MLS, and former CEO of the Las Cruces Association and MLS (NM)

“Don Martin is the epitome of a great instructor! He is incredibly knowledgeable about his chosen topics as well as being a presenter who knows how to hold the attention of his audience. With the experience and expertise, he has acquired in real estate over the last few years, I would find it difficult to think of anyone who has better credentials to teach our members! Over the last five years, I have found him to be extremely reliable, entertaining and exacting in his material.

Our students always give him high praise.” Roger Nelson, CEO, and Melody Hoover, former Education Director, West Maricopa County Regional Association of REALTORS.

Alice has a deep knowledge of the REALTOR® organization and the ability to use that knowledge to better direct a conversation about a complex subject like governance.  It was highly advantageous to have her objectivity and insight, as well as her ability to manage a group discussion as we began our thinking process.

“As an Association Executive for the past 32 years, I find it a pleasure to meet and learn from my colleagues in the association industry.  We are a close-knit community and because of this I have had the very distinct pleasure of getting to know Alice during that time.  Her desire to assist and promote REALTOR® Associations across the country is unbounded.  Alice is a true example of an effective Association Planner and while assisting our association to accomplish the update of our strategic plan , she quickly grasped the situation, worked with our leadership team and the outcome is a positive solution.  Our updated plan is already making great strides within our organization.”  It is my pleasure to recommend Alice Martin to any local association for Leadership Training and Strategic Planning.

I’ve seen Alice work with all types of associations, large and small, and she has a real knack for getting to the core of the issues and helping REALTORS and Association Executives solve problems, plan for the future, and address members’ needs. I’ve also worked with Alice as a co-facilitator on Leadership Training and she is very successful at getting people engaged in conversation and also being prepared for leadership roles. I’d highly recommend Alice for your association’s training, consulting and or facilitation needs!” – Diane Ruggiero, RCE, CAE, Consultant,  former CEO, Kansas City Regional Association of REALTORS® & Heartland Multiple Listing Service
