Working with Patrick

Professionals who build great relationships will thrive whether the economy is expanding or contracting. Mortgage and real estate speaker Patrick Galvin will customize a keynote speech or workshop program for your organization and referral partners based on the powerful business relationship building lessons from his book, The Connector’s Way.  Here’s what mortgage industry and real estate professionals have said about Patrick’s speaking programs:

“After seeing Patrick’s keynote presentation at The CORE Training’s Summit in San Antonio in May 2017 and reading his book The Connector’s Way, I invited him to speak to my loan officers and their referral partners. To promote the event, I did a 45-minute Zoom video conference call with Patrick which we edited into eight videos that highlighted Summit Funding’s commitment to helping its referral partners grow. The videos received great feedback and helped us fill the event in just a couple of weeks. The content and delivery of Patrick’s two-hour seminar on business relationship were outstanding, and I continue to get enthusiastic comments from those who attended. Audience members appreciated that Patrick took the time to interview local loan officers and realtors and gave them the opportunity to share their success stories. If you’re looking for a dynamic speaker and business relationship building expert who goes the extra mile for his clients, I highly recommend Patrick!”
Derrick Polder Regional Vice President, Summit Funding (Arizona)

“We were extremely lucky to have Patrick speak to over 175 of our mortgage loan originators about relationship building. He shared a number of easy and practical ideas that our people were able to implement immediately. In the world of clicking the button to place our order, Patrick has a refreshing take on building and leveraging relationships for maximum advantage. I highly recommend seeing Patrick speak and reading his book, The Connector’s Way.”
Joe Ewens EVP Production, GEM Mortgage, Inc. (California)

“Thank you, Patrick, for your presentation to our local Santa Barbara professionals and realtors. It was such a pleasure working with you and it couldn’t have been an easier event for me to sponsor. Many of our attendees got back to me with comments about how well spoken, genuine and heartfelt you were, as well as how your statistics and step-by-step instructions were clear and easy to understand and accomplish. Your applicable lessons and thoughts on business relationship building are spot on.”
Mary Layman Realtor, Keller Williams (California)

“Patrick spoke to our loan officers and zeroed in on the importance of word of mouth. He helped educate our people on how to use today’s social media tools to improve word of mouth results. Patrick was entertaining, professional and educational. Patrick’s message was just what they needed to hear.”
Brandt Hulse Business Development Manager, Guild Mortgage (Oregon)

“I first met Patrick Galvin at The CORE Training Summit in San Antonio, as he delivered a keynote presentation to a group of over 600 high achieving real estate and mortgage professionals. His direct, simple, but powerful message resonated with our group. Tim Lindsey (Bear Mortgage) and I invited him to come to Denver and speak at the Small Business Expo. Patrick was brilliant, as usual, and he had over 100 people sitting on the edge of their seats to hear his wisdom.”
Kevin Mackessy Broker-Owner, Blue Olive Properties (Colorado)

“Patrick presented on real world and online networking to our entire mortgage sales force. His presentation was engaging, interactive and powerful to foster new ideas, change behaviors and grow our business. How do I know? Within two weeks of the presentation, multiple loan officers had gained new contacts, joined networking groups and/or directly received referrals because of their actions.”
Rob Walworth Director of Mortgage Sales, BECU (Washington)

“Patrick’s talk was engaging, funny, insightful, and in the end, inspiring. I don’t use that word lightly, either. You could feel his energy permeate the room, and it was clear that Patrick was connecting with a large contingent of the audience (which of course makes sense, given the title of his book!).”
Michael Bluhm Real Estate Broker, Neighborhood Works Realty (Oregon)

“I met Patrick at an event for top producing mortgage and real estate professionals. I was drawn to his message and how he’s truly someone who believes in building a relationship business. The principles are so spot on that we decided to host a video simulcast with Patrick, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the response of our attendees as well as the additional nuggets I was able to get for my business. I’d recommend Patrick to anyone who’s looking to build a better business one relationship at a time.”
Suzanne Caldeira Vice President, Shamrock Financial (Rhode Island)

“We had Patrick speak to all our mortgage loan officers across the company about networking and leveraging social media to increase referrals. Patrick was easy to work with and met with us prior to the presentation to customize the content to meet our needs. After two days of back-to-back presentations, we asked our loan officers who their favorite speaker was and Patrick was at the top of the list. Many went home that weekend and implemented the recommendations that he provided. He is engaging, and provides clear, easy-to-implement ideas that any loan officer can take to enhance their business. I highly recommend Patrick as a speaker to any credit union or financial institution.”
Tony Ingram Regional Director, First Tech Federal Credit Union (Oregon)

“I read Patrick’s book The Connector’s Way and loved it. Today I got to meet him as he spoke at our office. I’ve been in the mortgage business for 30 years, and rarely have I received so much useful information in a very short period.”
Allen Young Loan Officer, Community Mortgage Funding (California)

“Patrick’s presentation challenged the mortgage loan officers to view their LinkedIn and other social media profiles from many vantage points. His presentation was personalized for our group, dynamic, and very interactive, thus allowing our sales team to get the most out of his message. Most importantly, Patrick ardently followed up with individual coaching sessions for each sales person and provided personalized recommendations for each of their profiles to ensure that they were maximizing all opportunities in getting their personal message out. Patrick’s recommendations, coaching, and determination to help increase each sales person’s sales numbers have provided noticeable results. I would highly recommend that your team experiences Patrick’s ‘galvanizing’ effect.”
Casey Filburn Director of Mortgage Lending, Advantis Credit Union (Oregon)
