About McLean International
Moving entrepreneurs and organizations to the next level of success for over 25 years
McLean International unexpectedly began while Linda McLean still worked in the Canadian banking industry. Charged with the task of increasing her bank’s mortgage portfolio, she created a marketing program that targeted the area’s top real estate agents.
As she developed relationships with these agents, she started hearing the same complaint over and over: “I’m too busy!” Too busy to follow up with all of their leads properly, too busy to deal with the piles of papers falling off their desk, too busy to hire—in short, too busy to do the things they needed to do to move their careers to the next level of success.
Her background in the highly-systematized banking industry had given Linda a knack for identifying inefficiencies and creating practical solutions. So, as the agents complained, she gave them suggestions. They liked her ideas so much, they asked her how to best set priorities and develop a plan to implement them.
Realizing she had identified a critical need amongst real estate agents, Linda founded McLean International in 1989. Her business planning and organizational strategies helped build her first client’s business from selling 55 houses one year to over 400 the next—an improvement of over 600%!
Today, McLean International has grown into a talented, multifaceted team of experts that works not only with real estate agents and brokers, but with professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs from a wide range of industries. Through our coaching and training programs, we have:
