Mike Strouf owned his real estate office for about four years, had 10 employees and his business was doing great. Then, in 2008 the recession hit and everything came to a standstill.
Mike put a little over $200,000 on his credit cards to support himself and his family. There was no money coming in, and he was eventually evicted from his office. "To this day, even the thought of getting evicted from my office gives me a sick feeling in my stomach." With the help of his assistant, Mike moved his entire office into his garage.
During this tough time, Mike received a phone call from his friend, Gino Blefari, who invited him to attend a Buffini & Company event. When Mike listened to Brian speak for the first time, the message rang true to him."It was something I knew I needed. I was sitting here listening to a man explain exactly how I believe, and he has a system for it! I knew in my heart it was the direction I wanted to go to move forward in my life."
Fast forward five years; Mike has moved out of his garage and has opened a new office. In 2014, Mike closed 44 sides for a sales volume of $41M.
