Bob Stewart - Active Rain
recently had the good fortune to meet Brad Andersohn. It was truly an amazing
learning experience for me.
The primary topics at hand were constructing my business plan for 2008 and growing my business into the future.
Brad has written a full suite of software products that directly and intuitively take you down the path of your future
business activities and projected results. He breaks the tasks down to monthly, weekly, and daily activities.
Once one or several deals get done, the program updates and recalculates new target levels for contacts,
appointments, and closings needed to stay on target with your original plan. Brad’s schedules allow flexibility in
terms of client contact whether it be thru emails, notes, visits, or phone calls. He and his company, First American
Title, go into great detail in assisting agents with farming and building meaningful databases.
Brad’s grasp of blogging, websites and all the interrelated parts of that segment of marketing is unparalleled.
My description of Brad’s ideas and products do not do justice to the value they have immediately added to my outlook, attitude
and renewed enthusiasm to get my plans put into action. Hats off to a real Pro — and yes, this is a direct, hard core
recommendation for you to contact him and REALLY grow your biz.

can only be described as high-energy, creative, "brain food" for the real estate
industry. If you want systems,
solutions and technologies to take your business to the next level, Brad is the answer! I honestly don't know when
Brad sleeps. Awesome Title/Escrow services by day, Technology genius by night. Really good Title/Escrow people take
excellent care of clients you bring them, but Brad is on a different level entirely. He helps you develop clients you didn't

Jason Bliss - Intuvo LLC
“I would highly recommend Brad's work. He is on top of technology and is a wonderful trainer. 100% ethical, honest
and a person with integrity.”
Missy Caulk - RE/MAX Platinum
worked with Brad for several years. Brad was especially helpful in keeping my
mortgage company on track with his
knowledge of the mortgage and real estate industry. He assembled a team that was, in my opinion, the best in their
field. As a mortgage broker, I relied on my title company for prompt, accurate and friendly service for my clients.
I always recommended Brad's team and would drive 20 miles to use him rather than someone closer because of his
dedication to his clients, his team and to me. I would, without a doubt, work with Brad and any team he puts
Richard Smith - Keystone Mortgage
“Brad is the type of person everyone should have in their world; a man with lots of integrity, reliability, honor,
helpfulness and smart, too. He, through First American Title, has provided services I desperately needed many times
- especially computer/PDA and technology fixes. He continues to be interested in my real estate business’ growth
and how he and his company can make (my life simpler and) my business better. I very highly recommend Brad!”
Patrice Hall - Prudential California Realty
"Brad's industry knowledge, integrity, professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile to help others is
an invaluable asset to his peers. I would, without reservation, highly recommend Brad Andersohn's work in
the escrow and technology services that he provides. As a 15 year veteran of the real estate and consulting
industry, I have yet to find someone so willing to share his time, knowledge and expertise with others.
Subscribe to his blog's! You will be amazed at the wealth of information..."
Nick Bastian - Homesource Preferred Properties

"Thank you so much for your hard work and enthusiastic involvement.
Some transactions are easier than others - this was not one of those!"
Judson and Company
I have had the great opportunity to be a colleague of Brad's on Active Rain. He has written numerous
instructional and tutorial posts on utilizing online marketing tools for the thousands of members on
Active Rain. His posts show great detail and precise instructions on each of the pieces of technology he shares
with us, and he uses those skills to make sure his writing is clear and concise, and easily understood by his
audience. I continue to use Brad's posts to make my online marketing efforts as efficient and productive as
possible. And I know numerous other Active Rain members would confirm the same as well.
Brad clearly has a firm grasp not only on the latest technology tools available, he also has a great handle on how best to
implement them as well. I will continue to look to him for news on how to continue striving to make my online marketing as
effective and efficient as possible. He's a terrific asset to all of us who are colleagues on Active Rain!

American Title." You are much thought of!
Nina Giannini - Prudential Real Estate
"Brad, thanks so much for your fast and efficient customer service. It is
because of service like this that your Title Company is my
favorite. My escrows are handled by Sylvia Jenson in Lafayette."
Karl Zimmank - Coldwell Banker
"Brad, a special thanks for your time, expertise and patience in getting our computer system going. I've had this system
for nearly 4 years and have never had it efficiently the way it was intended. In about 3 hours, you accomplished what
three other so called professionals were unable to do. WOW! Everything is up and running great! A million thanks would
not be enough. I was extremely impressed with your knowledge, professionalism and ability to simplify tasks to a level I
could understand. You have a rare talent, which should take you a long way in life and to a successful career. Thank you
so much again...you have been an absolute "Gold Mine" to my office!
Steve Turnbloom - Turnbloom & Associates - Broker / Owner
To the Division President- "It is very seldom that I write a letter of commendation about someone. However, I can not end the year without
letting you know just how valuable Brad Andersohn has been to our Danville office, our staff, and to myself this year. Brad's assistance in
writing computer programs for our Marketing Allotment Program and Escrow Coordinator will make our office systems and staff time more
efficient. He has been wonderful about finding out exactly what our needs are and following up to make sure the programs are accommodating
those needs. Brad's positive attitude and professionalism are truly an asset to your company."

John Bolton - Century 21 Landmark
To the Branch Operations of First American, "I am writing to you on behalf of your generous and brilliant team of support
personnel which include Brad Andersohn. I can't say enough about him. He has helped me so many, many times, and has
gone out of his way, way above and beyond the "call of duty". I just hope that other agents are not as remiss as myself in
writing to let you know how grateful we are to have him. He is truly exceptional and has done more for me than I could
ever "Thank" him for!" It has taken a great deal to win my business, but I owe it to Brad. Many Thanks!!"
Cynthia Burke, CRS - Security Pacific Real Estate
Dear Bill Loftin,"Norm Tuttle (A Good Customer) came in to ask about some "Customer Service" information he
needed from Contra Costa County. He used our phone here in the office and called our customer service department.
He said he got Brad Andersohn. Says that it was customer service at it's VERY BEST! Told me who he talked to and
said he got exactly what he needed and FAST! Please pass this on to the appropriate department head. Thanks!"
Bill Morrish - First American Title - Board of Directors
To Gina Cotten, "I teach a course for senior agents at Mason McDuffie in Orinda and have had Brad Andersohn speak at the
prospecting session on three occasions. He is an excellent speaker with a tremendous amount of knowledge. I believe he
takes his work very seriously and I will continue to ask him to be a part of my training classes. I think you have a great
employee and team. Thank you!

on Active Rain. He makes an extra effort to help others throughout the network.
Kristal Kraft - The Berkshire Group Realtors
The President, "I would like you to know how much we appreciate Brad Andersohn.
Brad continually goes the extra mile
in service, and always with a smile. Brad has really made the Advantage Farming system a super tool. He has spent
countless hours helping us get it in running order. We know it will make a big difference in our future business. There is
something to be said about someone who takes time out in the evening to call from their home because they know the next
couple of days are filled with many appointments. Much dedication to your company as well as to the agents he is helping.
Brad has been a treasure to deal with and it would be hard to think of doing business with any other title company Our
sincere thanks and appreciation in your having such a dedicated employee."
Katy Huetter and Todd Van Laanen - RE/MAX Realtors
Brad, You are one of those kind of people that instructors "Dream" of having in
their class! You are eager,
enthusiastic, ready and willing to learn, supportive, and you walk the talk. Your application of what I teach is excellent as
is your ability to adapt what I teach to you and your way of selling. To say I am one of your greatest fans would be an
understatement! Congratulations on winning the Sales Talk Championship. The competition was excellent. To be chosen
Best-of-the-Best is the highest honor. Best of luck to you always!"
Eddie Snow - Dale Carnegie
"Brad, you are a good salesperson! Usually I say no at least 3 times to
test your perseverance, but I have had a couple of people in Northern
California that were left with a bad taste from one of your competitors. Mainly from the escrow standpoint. Please mail me a few rate
schedules and a listing of your office locations. I have used First American in some purchase transactions where the choice was the sellers.
I have had no bad experiences, so I will give you a try. Thanks for your tenacity."
"There are not enough compliments I could give to express
my appreciation for the amazing job Brad did with a presentation for one of our
producing agents. He prepared a 1 1/2 hour presentation to present at a master minds marketing group for our client. Brad did a fabulous job,
as always. There were rave reviews from all who attended. This is just one of the Thousands of reasons Brad should be the "Service Star of
the Year!" Thank you for everything Brad!"
Kelly Cantrell - Lyons - Placer Title Company
"Brad, to stand out as a "Service Star" in an era that requires lots of energetic performances just to keep pace with our volume, is certainly an
accolade. Thank you for showing us all how to get the job done! You set an example for our newer employees and keep the customers coming
back. Congratulations on your award.
Mark Sachau - First American - Chief Operating Officer
"Brad was instrumental in the production of the 1st ever "Solano County Real Estate Tech Fair"! Being the Chairman
for the SAOR Technology Committee, Brad took it upon himself to plan, direct, coordinate and implement the entire
program. Most of his effort was done after hours on his own personal time. Brad definitely deserves a service star for
his great and valiant efforts!"
Thomas Lucini - First American Title - Director of Sales
What a delight to find another musician in the industry! And a great one at
that! After listening to a few of your
tracks, I have the felt the passion and the dedication that the role music has played for you in your life. Having a few
musical bars of music behind me, I have to tell you that understanding and having the same passion for music, it is this
passion, that allows me to conclude that the same dediction and passion is applied to your career with First American
Title. With people like you, it is easy to see why First American Title is First!
