I am absolutely thrilled and honored to welcome my lifelong friend and mentor, Tom Daddario, into our fold as a full-time sales coach. Tom's journey from a distinguished career in sales leadership to becoming a passionate mentor is nothing short of inspiring, and I couldn't be happier to have him on our team, coaching others the way he has helped me.
Tom Daddario's career in sales reads like a tale of relentless pursuit and unwavering commitment. For over 30 years, he has sold homes and managed sales for some of the most prominent builders in the industry, including Beazer, KB Homes, Lennar, M/I Homes, Ryland, and Standard Pacific. His remarkable track record and deep industry expertise have set him apart as a true sales leader.
However, Tom's story goes far beyond impressive sales figures. It's about a passion for sales, a dedication to his craft, and an innate ability to inspire and guide others. It's no surprise that Tom has earned a well-deserved reputation as an exceptional mentor to so many in our industry.
My personal connection with Tom Daddario goes back to the mid-80s when our paths first crossed. Tom was working on-site for a builder in West Palm Beach, and as a local Realtor ®, I bought Tom some clients who in my mind were truly a long shot, and years away from wanting to move. I remember receiving a call from Tom about a week later saying:
“Good news Roland, your clients are building a home, to close in twelve months. Please come in tomorrow and pick up your upfront commission check!”
Say what Tom, my pleasure! I am embarrassed to admit that I used that commission, which truly felt like a gift from the heavens, to put a deposit on my dream Luxury Real Estate Vehicle! Little did I know that this chance encounter would set the stage for a lifelong friendship that would forever transform my career. Tom provided invaluable coaching and insights during those early days, and I quickly realized that his passion for sales went far beyond just closing sales. It was about helping others realize their full potential, guiding them toward excellence, and fostering a spirit of growth and development. His impact on my career and the careers of many others has been immeasurable.
Tom and I share a common philosophy when it comes to training and coaching – authenticity is the key to success. Both of us firmly believe that training should stem from real-world experience. Tom's journey, which includes roles in sales, leadership, and exemplifies this philosophy. Like me, Tom has been in the trenches, faced the challenges, and enjoyed the rewards of a successful new home sales career.
