It's a must read for anyone committed to a career in selling. Danny has the unique ability to teach in such a way that you do not realize how much you are learning because you enjoy it so much..."

Tom Hopkins - International Sales Trainer and Author

"No one can sell like Danielle!"

Dr. Denis Waitley

"Danielle Kennedy has written a sales book from the heart. I know her common sense approach to instinctive salesmanship works, because she and I have been successfully practicing these principles all of our lives. Her down to earth approach is a breath of fresh air in an era when sale's "how to" books are sometimes overwritten and technocratic."

Judi Sheppard Missett - Founder and CEO of Jazzercise

Danielle Kennedy has brought together a remarkable blend of practical insights and skills combined with a sensitive knowledge of personal emotions and character. Every sales professional should have this book as part of their permanent reading library."

Brian Tracy - Brian Tracy Learning Systems

Lane Nemeth - President of Discovery Toys

"There is no other sales trainer with more credibility, practicality and likability than Danielle Kennedy. If you are committed to a more productive career, you must hear her and read her books. I attended Danielle Kennedy's first talk, and have been learning from her ever since. It is impossible to listen to, or to read Danielle's practical and proven ideas and not be more successful."

Patricia Fripp - Author, and International Speaker, and Speaking Coach

Danielle keeps honing her talent, finding different ways for it to be realized and I expect that will be true of her when she is 90."

Pat McCormick - Four Time Olympic Gold Medalist

"Danielle and her book, how can I say enough? First of all it influenced my own start to a real estate career and I just had to meet her to share with her the success that she helped me to achieve my first 3 years in the business. By then I was known as "the Upper Eastside Lady" thanks to following her suggestions on what we then called "farming." Then I owned my own firm and all our agents used her book like a guide. Now as the CEO of a Realtor Association we have hired her many times to help our members learn how to give good service to their sellers and buyers. The reviews on her presentations are always top rate but still they get better. She is that rare bottle of wine that really does get better over time. Read the book and use the ideas, it will only make your career better too."

"Sometimes those who are successful are called 'lucky' by those who are not. The Irish have some sayings about luck. In this industry there are those who settle for "good enough" and those who are 'afraid of success' and those who 'strive to be better.' Only the last group reads books or implements what they learn. Those lucky enough to discover "Danielle" are lucky enough!"

Kathleen Schulte

"I think Danielle is the most tried and true tested program for getting listings regardless of the market. Her system works for anyone ready to go out the front door and meet people. It does not rely on memorized complicated scripts or outrageous expenditures for the newest and greatest software. Danielle's approach is one of meeting people, letting them know what you can do for them and building trust. More than ever today, the public wants to believe they can trust you because the public trust has been violated on so many levels. Danielle's book is a roadmap for building trust with your clients which means you will have a lifetime of quality business.

I recently reconnected through facebook with a friend of mine that I had not spoken to since college. In catching up it turned out we were both now Realtors. She is in Oregon and I am in Nevada. When I mentioned I was working on the forward for Danielle's book, she recounted for me that when she started in real estate nine years ago that book was her guide to starting her business. She said it is now dog earred and she has lent it to many other new Realtors. This is the true testimony why Danielle is so lasting. Her strategy works to sell anything because she relies on honesty and providing good information."

Fafie Moore - Broker/Owner Realty Executives

"From the beginning, HTLS became my real estate bible. Danielle's savvy insights and time-tested advice are invaluable - guaranteed to help anyone become a top sales professional. For over 20 years I have preached and applied 'the Danielle Kennedy Way' in my business, and I fully attribute her proven systems and techniques to my success in real estate."

Tina Jimov - President of Tarbell REALTORS®

"Danielle's book is a great book for anyone who would like to double or triple their success. She is a great speaker, motivator, coach, and teacher. Her down-to-earth approach, her scripts, extremely entertaining presentation skills, her humor, her passion, her leadership skills can empower anyone to rise to the top and go for excellence. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. Her own life, her "ages of wisdom", her talent can help anyone to become a top sales professional .

Danielle, the information and materials you share are invaluable, you are the best of the best in the Real Estate industry as a role model, coach, speaker, leader. Your book became my R.E. bible, and it brought me tremendous success!

For over 20 years I preached and applied 'the Danielle Kennedy way' in my business, and I attributed my success to  your systems, your techniques, your from the heart approach. We all have heroes in our lives and in my life you are among them. Of course my mom is #1, who always believed in me and instilled in me 'can do attitude' but you taught me how to use that attitude and achieve success in my business and in life.

You are the most dynamic woman I have ever met in my life! You are the best of the best, yesterday, today and tomorrow!"

Our members were thrilled with her performance and with her message, which was so appropriate for our group and the real estate market we are facing. Danielle's Rescue Plan for Success helped to motivate and inspire our REALTOR members. We received exceptionally positive feedback and we look forward to having her back in Tallahassee again."

This “bible” of real estate has sold in excess of one million copies. It specifically teaches salespeople how to build a successful business, no matter what challenges the real estate economy presents. After she became an award-winning saleswoman (top 1% in the nation) she started her own company which maintained 30% market share for 5 years running.

(See Books) Her training products are available on cds , dvds, and downloads on the internet. Today thousands of salespeople in many industries have invested in her training materials, mastering her powerful how to's to improve their business. All of her methods are based on her vast history of experiences in sales, leadership/management and balancing a very large family life. It is not hyperbole. She walks the talk.

Stage #3: Danielle continues to deliver keynote speeches, seminars and has added consulting to her services provided through Danielle Kennedy Productions.
