Carol Ludtke Prigan, PhD, Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer

Real estate has been my profession for over 20 years. Prior to that, I earned a Ph.D. and spent several years teaching at the college and university level. After some initial success in real estate, I found myself struggling to get listings and sales and wondering if I had made the right choice when I got licensed. I learned how to be an effective salesperson and get control of my business through training and coaching. I spent 13 years in sales, then joined the corporate training department of a large, independent brokerage to give back some of the knowledge and experience I acquired while in the trenches of real estate.

I love to help agents to be productive as quickly as possible and to sustain their businesses. I’ve trained and coached hundreds of agents to realize their goals in real estate and life.
