McLean International and our coaches.
I had contacted McLean International for a consultation. I was delighted when Linda decided to work with me.
Linda has a knack for making her clients comfortable and at the same time, guiding them to get organized in their business. She listens, explores your desires, and zooms in on your passions while focusing on establishing a structure for your business.
Her 8-point business plan is a strong, carefully chosen and molded structure that any business can get grounded in their foundation. Her caring nature, blended with keen business acumen extracts the details from you and makes you aware of the things that need to be tackled in a prioritized, organized way. She provides you with the necessary reference material, books, and contacts.
I learned a lot about myself after going through the DISC evaluation.
I have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone who is starting their business or wants to excel in reaching their vision!

“McLean International took over my hiring process
– and saved me 18 hours of time!”
In the past I had tried to follow the regular system in hiring but would always get wrapped up in my real estate’s day-to-day activity instead. As a result, some of the people I selected to work with me weren't the best for my business.
This time around, I hired McLean International. McLean took over the hiring legwork and SAVED ME OVER 18 HOURS of time. While I continued to focus on what I do best . . . listing and selling . . . McLean International set out to hire people for me. They:
- · Analyzed what I really needed in this new person,
- · Created the job description,
- · Reviewed the incoming resumes,
- · Conducted the DISC evaluation on finalists to better discover nuances in personalities and working style
- · And then actually conducted the in-depth job interviews!
While they helped me hire, they consulted with me, too. As a result of their extensive experience across the nation with teams of all sizes, they were also able to identify other areas of my business where improvements could be made. McLean International has the experience, knowledge and terrific approach to building a team. WHAT A SAVINGS THE MCLEAN TEAM HIRING PROGRAM WAS FOR ME!Joe Jackson
Christina Beavis did a great job working with us. Her knowledge of Agent Online is excellent; she absorbed a lot of detail about how our real estate company works, and was able to help tailor our use of Agent Online for our specific needs.
She also has the breadth of experience in growing a team, made particularly obvious when she helped me coach a Buyer Specialist about a thorny problem. Throughout our day with her, she was professional and warm; she beautifully handled every issue we discussed.
Her follow up has also been excellent and her written materials are solid in content and organized well. What a great find she is for your highly qualified team!"Jane Ordway

“While McLean International helped me hire,
I had time to generate 5 new listings!”
Hiring takes a lot of time and, without a system, I was never sure I was hiring the right people. McLean International solved my hiring challenges by identifying where my team needed strengthening, and administrating the entire hiring process of two new team members.
McLean International took care of the sifting process including reviewing resumes and initial interviews. So, instead of spending hours of my time in this process, I was just doing the final interviews with qualified, thoroughly evaluated, excellent candidates. Because of the time I saved, I was able to stay focused on sales and generated 5 listings the same week the final hires were made. That’s leverage!Mary Ann Keary

“Today I enjoy more financial freedom and
more time spent with family and friends..."
I hired McLean International three years ago to help me find some work/life balance. I got that, and also increased my income by 40% the first year I worked with them. Today I enjoy more financial freedom and more time spent with family and friends instead of grinding away at unproductive or draining tasks.
I think there are two reasons McLean International has worked so well for me. The first is their “big picture” approach which focuses on developing a real estate sales practice that supports personal as well as professional goals. The second is the work they did with me on achieving a more successful mindset, which allowed me to break through my self-imposed barriers and move to the next level.Cece Blase
