campground without this seminar. START HERE!" Laura G, TX
"Part of my responsibility as a
Human Resources Administrator in banking was to develop and/or present
training seminars to all levels of staff and management. You are
all excellent presenters. The workshop was exceptionally
well-organized, and perhaps most important, it's obvious that you all
love what you do! Thank you." Mary H, NY

will really help you understand, what you're getting into and how to do
"I have purchased and read a couple books.
This had much more specific advice on how to buy and operate
campgrounds. It is the best by far."

everything - the examples
are great." Becky

"I want to say thank you for
a wonderful seminar. My entire career has been in sales and
marketing (28 years). I recognize quality material, presentation
and enthusiasm when I see it. All of you are to be commended for
putting together a professional program. You disseminated a
tremendous amount of great information in an engaging, professional and
entertaining way. You kept my attention and I never once thought
the course dragged in any way. Special thanks to the campground
owners who gave us their time and provided us the benefit to ask all the
questions we had! " Stan A, FL

Why Come to Our Workshop
Instead of Others? Here is what
past attendees say:
attended a seminar held by another brokerage firm and then 2 weeks later
attended yours. Your seminar was far more helpful than the other.
At the time we were supposed to be going with our best friends to both
seminars. Due to illness they were unable to attend. The
next year when they were ready to attend we told them to only go to one
seminar - YOURS! It was the most helpful.
Terry and Debra H, PA
"We attended another workshop last
fall. We both found your workshop to be much better.
Your information was more informative. Much more helpful and
beneficial to us." Jerry and Chris M, TX
Two-Day Workshop? Here is what
past attendees say:
"There was a tremendous amount to cover in 2 days.
It will take me 2 weeks to process it all." Phyllis
"You need a night to consider questions and things
learned; then on the second day ideas are reinforced and questions
Jack W, OH
"A prospective buyer is contemplating a relatively
large dollar investment and major life change. I believe a buyer needs
the time to digest the information then have the second day to reinforce
it and ask questions."
