Phoenix, Arizona – November 20, 2019 – SVN Desert Commercial is a full service comprehensive commercial real estate brokerage in Phoenix, AZ.  Every month in 2019, SVN has been nationally ranked in the TOP 10 offices within the SVN International Corp. network.  With over 200+ offices around the country and the addition of the international SVN franchises, there is one commercial real estate managing director that continues to increase the level of his sales training expertise through top level commercial real estate certifications.

Just last week, Managing Director Mike Gallegos was named The Massimo Group’s ‘2019 Contributor of the Year.’  Gallegos was recognized as an individual who has made a substantial contribution to the organization through developing new curriculum and expanding the client experience to new levels.  Gallegos has also been serving as a sales training manager to several SVN offices across the country.  He has worked with SVN in Phoenix since 2016 and has spent endless hours to get certified in several areas of commercial real estate that brings value to advisors who are continually increasing the level of performance from month to month.  “I think what we do here at SVN Desert Commercial Advisors goes way above and beyond what most brokerage firms do in preparing advisors for success,” said Gallegos.

The training transcends the usual basics, using skills development tracks built on personalized up-front assessments and deliberate practice to hone the critical building blocks of economics, financial analysis, sales, and the encyclopedic knowledge of the local market. .  Gallegos stated, “We intentionally seek out progressive, fresh training materials to augment the program, master the content through the certification process, and then adjust and implement so we can enable the advisors to transform the client experience.”

In 2019 alone, Gallegos has received the following certifications and/or designations below.

*Master of Corporate Real Estate Designation | CoreNet Global

*Commercial Real Estate Valuation | Moodys Analytics

*Straight Line Sales Certification | Jordan Belfort

*Leadership Certification | Focus3

*Extreme Ownership / Leadership Certification & Muster Event | Echelon Front

*Principles of Persuasion | Dr. Robert Cialdini / Influence at Work

“Attending the Muster event this year and completing the certification put the attendees in a position to look inward, take personal ownership of every aspect of your role at work and seek out continuous improvement, ” said Gallegos.

*Executive Masters in Leadership Degree | USC

*Unbeatable Mind Coaching Certification | Mark Divine / Unbeatable Mind Academy

*Argus Enterprise Financial Analysis Certification | Argus

“When the leaders of any company personally commit to the transformative process authentically, the road gets paved for everybody to level up, regardless of experience or pre-existing benchmarks of success. I believe in the principles wholeheartedly and find nothing more meaningful than helping equip our advisors with the tools to succeed,” said Gallegos.  In 2020, Gallegos will be working on completing the additional leadership and coaching certifications to begin the new decade.
