What do our past graduates have to say about The Floyd Wickman Team & Program?

This organization is my foundation. I owe so much of my success to what I have learned through my connection to Floyd Wickman personally and all of his trainers and coaches. I would highly recommend to anyone who is serious about their Real Estate Career.

— Jim galligan

Taking Floyd gave me the ability to go from a part time agent to a full time agent. I had 8 transactions as a part time agent the first year and have completed 24 transactions this year tripling what I did as a first year agent!

The Floyd Wickman course gave me just the right words to use for all aspects of my real estate career. From objection handling techniques to FSBO conversion. The Floyd Wickman courses are the only true real estate ‘training’ in the industry. The others are good but just offer short-term motivation. Floyd teaches long-lasting techniques.

As someone who makes a living giving presentations, I wanted to perform at the highest possible level. Floyd Wickman Team took me there, and beyond.

Absolutely the best. The most professional, loving and giving organization of people offering the best in real estate training, events for skill development and a true Get by Giving philosophy to all all the time! They’re the greatest!! Ever!!

What Brian Sharkey and the Floyd Wickman team offers is the difference in success vs failure or years of struggle in being successful in real estate sales.  What Brian teaches in his class that involves 7 sessions took me to learn the hard way over the first 15 to 20 years on my real estate career. I just wish that I was exposed to Floyd Wickman many years ago so I could make the type of money that I enjoy making now much sooner!

In today’s highly competitive real estate sales business, typically 7% of the real estate agents do about 93% of the business in any given real estate market. Unless you are already at that top tier of 7%, and you are serious about your real estate career, you are missing an opportunity of a lifetime to turn your real estate career around or make much more money in this business!!

- Joseph E. Bettag, P.A., Broker/Owner of Coastal Properties

Floyd and Doug Thompson are the reason I’ve become successful in this business. I knew how to sell homes before Floyd, but I didn’t know how to do it well, and how to do it time-wisely. I can honestly say Floyd made my business and I truly thank him for it.  I learned more during the 4 separate classes I took of Floyd Wickman training than most agents learn their entire careers. Thank you!

I've been a Floyd Wickman student for about three years now and have been in real estate for 18 years. This is, by FAR, my favorite coaching program I've been in. Each event I attend, each training course I complete, each coaching call I'm on takes my business to the next level. 2017 was my best year yet and I credit much of that to the Floyd Wickman program.

- Liz Sears, Keller Williams, Layton, UT


I am so grateful to have been a part of this exemplary training organization since I began my real estate career. The support and accountability of Wickman programs has made all the difference!

- Ladonna bow billman, Charles Reinhart Company, Ann Arbor, MI

Mary Johnson-Pallin is a top notch trainer and coach. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her style is nurturing yet she still holds her students accountable for their results. Mary had a tremendous impact on the agents in our company that attended the Floyd Wickman program and it has had a positive effect on our entire company.

Mary,  Since seeing you again on Tuesday, I have had an AMAZING week.  First of all, I shared your wisdom with the other agents in my office at our weekly sales meeting and we all left the meeting completely re-energized and with high expectations of what all we were going to be doing in the future.  Then, I actually had a floor call that afternoon and I completely controlled the conversation and was able to Wickman them, from everything that you taught me.  I used the 6 questions and handled their hesitations.  So, what started as a call inquiring about a listing by one of our agents in the office, and they were working with another realtor, ending with me discussing details about my current listing and I got a listing appointment for their house.  So today, I find out that they are ready to make an offer on MY listing and they are ready to list their house with ME!!  I could't have done it without you!!  Thank you!!!  Thank you!!!  Thank you!!!
