About Brad Bassi

Brad Bassi, SRA is an entertaining, dynamic and knowledgeable speaker that always works hard in front of the audience to give them useful information and keep them engaged. A combination of 10 years as a corporate executive and Senior VP of Marketing and Sales, and over 30 years as a residential real estate appraiser has provided a broad based experience level, coupled together with a ‘No BS’ attitude to getting things done. Brad is as energetic on stage, or in front of your office, as he is empathetic towards realtors, property owners, attorneys, trust department managers, and other real estate professionals.

I have presented to over fifteen local Temecula Valley real estate offices, five times to the SW Riverside County Board of Realtors over the past few years and to four family law counsel meetings, so I am familiar with what local real estate agents, estate, family law and bankruptcy attorneys are asking about and want to know.

I am also well aware of how brutal it is to sit in an audience, listening to some ‘expert’ clamor on, nearly putting their audience to sleep; I hate that as a participant so I make sure to keep things entertaining and interactive, I keep all of my presentations up-to-date as well as staying engaged with the attendees because their time is important and they should get something worthwhile from the speaker.

Training with a Slice of Humor
Highly aware of the balance needed to keep people informed and entertained at the same time, I inject a light-hearted approach with the training/speaking sessions, mixed with a little humor along the way, and I engage with the audience. It keeps them on their toes, and it makes them feel at ease with the whole time spent as they are a part of the presentation. By the time attendees are done digesting all the material, they will have something of value to take away, and more importantly, to take action on, holding themselves accountable to actually making the most out of the investment in time they made in attending the class.
