In addition, Cristian is in charge of strategizing the marketing campaigns for the offices and their impressive roster of high-level residential brokers.
Cristian plays an active role in providing support to his agents in listing acquisition and transactional guidance to clients by making himself available to them and his agents. Cristian has often been asked to step in and manage other company- local offices (Pasadena and Brentwood), and to represent the Sotheby’s International Realty at training and educational brand-related events, on topics such as How To Influence, Rocking the Brand, and Coaching with Intention. Cristian has taken a leading role in creating a course for the newly licensed agents entering the business by coaching them on all aspects of real estate as they launch their business in this ever-changing and highly competitive Los Angeles real estate landscape.
Cristian built his reputation as a strong relationship-based recruiter by attracting top-level seasoned agents to the brand. He has able to do so through his effective coaching on negotiation skills and high-performance productivity-based techniques, strengths analysis, and team-building, development strategies. Cristian received numerous invitations from various offices across the US to teach real estate courses and conduct workshops on negotiation skills, selling and buying techniques, and mastering the art of selling in real estate.
While in coaching with an executive and management coach, Cristian came across Gallup’s CliftonStrengths self-awareness assessment and instantly became interested in broadening his own coaching programs by adding his certification as a coach for individuals, executives, and teams. His coaching programs now are Strengths-based and has already seen tremendous growth of his agents’ sales business as well as his executive teams and employment engagement and performance.
