RISMEDIA, November 12, 2010—RE/MAX LLC and RISMedia are proud to announce that Brian Buffini, Chairman & Founder of Buffini & Company, has been honored with the fourth annual “On the Shoulders of Giants” award, created to recognize those individuals whose efforts, works, deeds and character exemplify superior achievements in and for the real estate industry.
Margaret Kelly, CEO of RE/MAX LLC, presented Buffini with the award during RISMedia’s 15th Annual Power Broker Dinner, held last week during the NAR Conference & Expo in New Orleans. The Power Broker Dinner honors the industry’s top brokers, as determined by the results of RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Report & Survey.
Buffini is the fourth recipient of this award. Past winners include: Howard Brinton, Founder of STARPower Systems; Nina Cottrell, CEO of the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS); and Craig Proctor, Founder of Craig Proctor Productions. The award is now an annual recognition by RISMedia and RE/MAX of those individuals whose dedication and contributions to the real estate industry often go unrecognized.
Buffini was born and raised in Ireland. He immigrated to the U.S. and entered the real estate industry in San Diego. Rather than follow traditional lead-generation methods, Buffini developed a powerful system to grow his business: 100% by referral.
In 1995, he founded Buffini & Company to share his proven systems with others. Headquartered in San Diego, Buffini & Company is now one of the largest real estate coaching and training companies in North America. Thanks to his unique and highly effective lead-generation system and a comprehensive coaching and training program, entrepreneurs in more than 37 countries have learned how to improve their business, increase net profit and enhance the quality of their life. According to Buffini & Company, agents using Buffini’s system earn six times the NAR national average (U.S.).
