"This was such an upbeat and exciting course that I will be able to take with me for many years to come. Would recommend having Roland share his knowledge and real-life experience. Amazing!"
Roland was entertaining and concise, very experienced on the new home sales floor; and easy to follow with the detailed sales process from beginning to end.
This was an amazing experience, Roland was super knowledgeable, charismatic, and full of energy, and an incredible human being.

"I had the extreme pleasure of going through training with Roland. I have been in sales for many years and Roland’s training has helped me elevate my sales skills to the next level."
Unbelievable Training, Roland is charming and engaging and I like that he has real new home sales experience to help us with his techniques.
I am thankful that there will be monthly follow up on our training to help continue and further our skills.
Wonderful, I took many new nuggets and cant wait to start using them. Roland was enthusiastic with lots of energy, funny, informative and clear on the process.
Roland is open, honest, engaging, energetic, and charismatic! He really works hard to help the team to learn and succeed.
Roland is very engaging and thought provoking! He really teaches in fashion that reinforces selling processes and teaches us that it is Ok to “Ask for the sale”.
I have been in new homes sales for over 10 years and have had numerous trainers, and I can that Roland’s program was the best experience I have ever had! Roland is knowledgeable yet fun and creative.
Roland was funny, communicated well and brilliant with responses, how to speak to clients. It is nice to know that the teacher has “Walked the walk” in new home sales. I love the idea of closing a you go, and that this actually puts the client at ease.
Incredible program! Roland is great, his knowledge, enthusiasm and love for teaching his content made me more excited to learn it.
I have been selling new homes for 18 years, and I really appreciated that everything we learned and discussed was relevant to todays market. Roland was knowledgeable and motivational and I really enjoyed learning from one of the best in the business!

I wanted to share a real life example of a team member using Roland's negotiation training on a standing inventory home this week. It worked great and we have a signed agreement! Terry got a new lead, He promptly met them the same day and demonstrated the home. While meeting them he did a great job of discovery and pulled out some key info from the Customer. 1. The Customer made an offer that was essentially about 75k lower than our list price. 2. Because Terry did good discovery we knew he was divorced, renting a house, could close quickly, his daughter needed to be in their School District, and most importantly he is a Sales Manager at a car dealership. This told us he was going to be a negotiator based on his profession, but also that we had the ideal home for him based on school district and ability to close fast and stop renting. 3. Even though he gave us an offer far below asking (about 75k) on a home we had recently lowered price on, we stuck to Roland's method of NOT splitting the difference. We countered and gave him very little. And specified a quick closing (give to get strategy). 4. Long story short, we used Terry's discover info, and Roland's strategy of NOT splitting the difference to in the end land at a full price offer, with a reasonable concession for closing cost / rate buy down. Congrats to Terry on getting a standing showcase home sold! I truly believe Roland's negotiation strategy and great discovery helped put this deal together. On to the next sale!
I am very proud of - Paige. Paige is brand new to the negotiating part of real estate and was faced with a difficult customer and Realtor who wanted everything under the sun, shortly after Roland's first on site training.
Paige received an offer for a long standing homesite in Woodside. She had met with the customers a couple times. At their last visit prior to heading back to California, they told Paige that they loved our homes and that the homesite was better than the other ones they had visited. Not only that they had friends living in the community. This immediately placed Paige in the driver's seat. The Realtor submitted an offer with a ridiculously long list of what they also wanted included - from a significant discount in price to backyard landscaping, fencing, blinds, etc., there were about 10 items on the list. She also stated that they were looking at other builders who were offering more than we were and that they could get the homes for less. Paige had done her homework and was aware of the homes listed around her. She new the homesites weren't comparable nor were the homes. A little nervous she called me and said she had re-read all of Roland's training materials and wanted to talk it out. We did a bit of role playing and came up with a solution. It's fine to give a little bit, and let's see what they counter with. Paige was spot on. They did want our home and the only counter back was for the landscaping in the backyard. We answered yes and the customer is now happy as they feel like they won as well. It was a great win for all as we didn't give into all their demands and the customers got what they really wanted.
Lessons Learned: Know your customer, and know the surrounding communities and homes available. It is especially important in this market where we are facing more and more negotiations. This was such a team effort. My favorite part of the sale is negotiating so between your training and me talking her through the sale process it was perfect and helped her gain confidence that she can do it. Training definitely builds confidence.
I owe so much of my success to Roland Nairnsey! My career launched with Roland’s sales training many years ago having been onsite with a Luxury Home Builder in Sarasota under his direction. I am now running a team of 11, a development project at 25 million dollars as Director of Sales and became a top producing agent here in Sarasota! I have also just been given the opportunity at my current brokerage to direct and develop our Coaching Academy! 280+ agents and any Realtor from any company needing coaching!
Roland’s gift for sales and training has truly changed my entire career! I am able to apply each and every day what he so kindly shared with me many years ago! On Site Sales, or General Real Estate it all ties in with his expertise of knowledge and training!
I wish you had space to be able to share the infinite words of wisdom I have received from Roland over the years.

“I found Roland's training to be the best training I could have possibly received as a new Salesperson with Keystone Homes. It walked me thru the process from the minute a potential home buyer walks in the door to earning the right to close the deal. His help with providing a whole new vocabulary to communicate more effectively with potential home buyers was another place where the training helped me be better at my job. I also really appreciated learning new ways to handle buyer objections. The training paid dividends right away as I incorporated many of the new techniques, I learned the following week and wrote my 1st contract. Now I can give that pesky chicken away.”
Don't be a chicken! Close the deal! Roland refreshed an inspired spirit for selling in our team! We had a fabulous 2 days and are so grateful for him sharing his knowledge!
"Roland offers a thorough but concise playbook for handling the real-life practical aspects of real estate sales. I've got 25 years of marketing, sales, and real estate experience, with extensive training and education, and none of that matches the usefulness and portability of Roland's approach."
