Legendary Sales Trainer Floyd Wickman Announces $6.6 Billion Plan to Jump Start U.S. Economy
PR Log - Jan 17, 2012 - "Real estate helped get America into its current economic mess and real estate will get us out of it," said internationally renowned sales trainer Floyd Wickman in announcing his bold plan to help jolt the nation back to prosperity with a $6.6 billion shot in the arm.

"Home prices are more affordable than they've ever been and interest rates are at historic lows with banks ready to fund loans that make sense," Wickman said. "All we need to get our economy back on track through the American Dream of home ownership are well-trained agents who are more effective in selling homes."

To give agents the power they need to jump start home sales, Wickman is offering free training seminars across the country with the goal of re-motivating the nation’s real estate sales force and teach them to be more effective for—and with—their clients. The Floyd Wickman Economic Recovery Plan is focusing on the 10 states hit hardest by the housing bust and believes a spike in home sales driven by well-trained housing specialists will help revive the economy.

"I’ll give agents a powerful strategy and teach them the skills they need to sell at least one additional home per month," Wickman said. "In one year, these 5,000 agents can initiate 60,000 new home sales, a terrific shot in the arm for the nation's economy, not to mention more commissions for the agents."

Wickman is reaching out to real estate associations in the hardest hit states for the free training and said he will teach his formula for success to any group that shares his positive attitude and believes they can really make a difference by helping people buy homes.

"Working with real estate associations and their members, I truly believe we can pick America up by its bootstraps and get our economy moving again," Wickman said. According to the sales trainer, the numbers make perfect sense:

•   500 agents generating one sale a month in 10 states is 60,000 home sales per year.
•   Using just half of the National Association of Realtors' $164,200 average national sales price, that's $4.9 billion in sales.
•   Multiply that by the amount NAR says a real estate transaction generates in economic activity, 1.34, and the recovery plan would create a $6.6 billion shot in the arm!

A 40-year sales training veteran, Wickman has appeared before 3,000 audiences both in the United States and abroad and his ground-breaking training program has enriched the lives of hundreds of thousands of sales professionals.

He is a member of the prestigious National Speakers Association Hall of Fame and was named one of the 25 Most Influential People in Real Estate by the National Association of Realtors and Realtor Magazine because of the dramatic impact he had on agent success.

And now, living up to the "Get by Giving" philosophy that shaped his life and propelled his students, Floyd is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of his most successful training platform, The Floyd Wickman Program, with his bold economic recovery plan.

"I served in the Navy for 10 years and I've spent the last four decades in the real estate field," Wickman said. "I have great faith in America’s economic engine and will do all I can to give back to my country.”

As a further stimulus, Wickman will donate 10% of all of his product sales in 2012 to the Military Housing Assistance Fund,, to help returning veterans buy a home, plus he’s donating another 10 percent to the REALTORS® political action committee to focus more attention on real estate as a key economic engine.
