Anchor Advisors & Associates has been an incubator for developing people and deals in the real estate and financing space leading the way to Financial Freedom and a secure retirement for Associates and Clients going back more than 50 years. (that's why Associates & Clients stay for years)

After closing to new Clients & Associates a few months prior to 9-11 we are now making room for the Clients and Associates we haven't met yet for the first time in years as part of an EPIC Movement with a Mission.
 

We've teamed up on our Movement with Investor Entourage and Inspire Realty Partners to create a Triad & add some relative youth and freshness to our established core to provide for more longevity at the senior level. Become part of our EPIC Movement and you will make a positive difference for yourself and others.


Our Mission is to Make A Difference


We transform properties and lives using our House of Programs to solve real estate and income problems creating Affordable Housing to empower families and individuals to follow the well worn path to achieve the American Dream of Home Ownership, an above average income, and create a secure retirement to fulfill our Mission to Make A Difference 1 person and 1 property at a time using our Client for Life model, House of Programs and Private Deal Platform to do it.


We have many local Branch Offices across the Country on the Drawing Board and we identify potential Team Leaders and help them build their teams prior to opening a local Branch Office which can be a hub for any or all of our Triad that is collaborating on the expansion.

One of the many common threads in our Triad is the Real Estate Education company that we chose to be our preferred primary provider of Real Estate and Financial Literacy education to relieve us of that burden. We did not make that choice lightly and we are confident we made the best choice and are pleased to have them as our Education Provider since over the years we found an educated Client is our best Client, an educated Associate can best assist our Clients, so that we can just do the deals without having to answer the same basic questions over and over again.


The Process

The Process is a regimented Marketing, Recruiting, and Sales Process that has been in use for far more than 50 years and has been responsible for over 10,000 deals and several billion dollars in sales in the Real Estate and Finance space over the past 50 years alone for the Anchor Core Cadre.

With an inception before computer much of The Process original documentation was hand written or typed and unfortunately did not all make it to digital media. As the youngest of the Founding Fathers Joe was the last working person to have first hand experience with The Process.

It started with our 3 Step Screening Process for new candidates.

We are still in the process of modifying the first 2 steps from the original 3 Step Screening process for more efficient use of your time and ours.

Step 1 used to be a phone screen and invitation to come down to our office for an initial Interview if there was mutual interest. That was always effective but it was too man-hour intensive for us and required you to commute to our office to complete our application answer a few more questions find out a little bit about us and go back home to wait and see if you qualified to go on to Step 2 which was an all day career Orientation for all candidates.


We are keeping the substance intact and modifying the form by breaking each Step into several smaller shorter parts to make better use of your time and ours.


Step 1 now starts with this page:
http://step1.anchoraa.info/ and gives you a short briefing on our original and newer parts.

Step 2 starts with at least 2 different Introduction meetings and several intro recordings to cover part of your Orientation that used to be a full day event.

Step 2 continues with this page:
http://step2.anchoraa.info/  which is still a work in progress and requires further modifications which will come later.


The Step 1 and Step 2 pages along with some of the videos on them when you combine it with a couple of live meetings where you can meet some of the people will give you enough background for us to have an intelligent discussion about where you are in your life now, & what you want to accomplish.

We cover that at your Career Planning Interview (CPI) because we tailor your Career Path to accomplish your objectives just like we tailor our Programs to accomplish our Client's objectives.


The Process commences with a sound & solid Recruiting Process that starts with a 3 Step Screening Process for new candidates as the foundation and provides a solid Basic Training and Marketing Process to complete the foundation and merges into an Accelerated Development Program and advanced training in various specialties for Retention, Personal Development, and Growth.

Our programs are the tools we use to Make a Difference and our Education Program is our newest addition.

Since the Education program is our newest program it is one of the things we brief you on and one of the Introduction meetings you should attend.


We believe the essentials level education is a must have for anyone that owns a house or ever wants to and anyone who wants to pay less taxes and interest.


We work on the Client for Life model and have many long time Clients and Associates so we are only seeking stable people looking for a long term career.


In order to acquire the knowledge and skills to help our Clients and Associates do real estate deals the right way you will enter our part-time Earn while you Learn training program on a 90 day probationary basis where if you are serious you can acquire the right knowledge and skills if you commit an average of at least 20 hours per week over your 90 day probationary period, (mostly at home with at least 4 or 5 sessions at one of the offices) you will have acquired enough knowledge and skills to be able to fill the role productively and make the move to full-time. (as long as you pass your probation)


We have always believed that work can and should be fun, and encourage our Associates to do what they can too make it so, but at the end of the day it is still work.


If you do pass your probation but are not yet ready to make a full time commitment you can either stay on in a part-time PR and administrative capacity until you are ready to make a full time commitment, or you can go back to your old life with your newly acquired knowledge and skills better off than you were.


That is a win-win deal for you, which are the only kinds of deals we do.


We learned how to do deals the right way from the school of hard knocks but our new Clients and Associates can choose to do it the easy way and use our Education Program and the platform we chose to use to deliver it.

We are thrilled with our chosen education program vendor we are done investing time and money in education as they have a substantial investment in infrastructure, curriculum, and a terrific faculty to deliver it so we can go back to doing what we do best; deals for our Clients & Associates.

Here is a checklist so you can see how you are progressing in the screening process;

Requirements are  you need at least 15 points to qualify to enter Basic Training (each step completed is worth 1 point) and there are 29 total steps because we need to feel that you can be a good long term fit and you should understand at least enough of what we do to feel it is a good fit for you before either of us invest a lot of time and money in your training and future.

It probably seems like we have a lot of steps that will take a lot of time to get through, that is true now, and has always been true, as a matter of fact our Step 2 Orientation at one point was a 2 full day event (Sat & Sun) before we made our selections of who got to start Basic Training at a Career Planning Interview (CPI) the following week. (just ask Joe) But considering that we deal with Clients for life and what is at stake for them and you we have found it is in everyone's best interest.
We have many local Branch Offices on the Drawing Board and we identify potential Team Leaders and help them build their teams prior to opening a local Branch Office which can be a hub for any or all of our Triad that is collaborating on the expansion.

One of the many common threads in our Triad is the Real Estate Education company that we chose to be our preferred primary provider of Real Estate and Financial Literacy education to relieve us of that burden since our training instructors are retired.

We did not make that choice lightly and we are confident we made the right choice, the best choice, and the Smart Choice, and are pleased to have them as our primary Education Provider since over the years we found an educated Client is our best Client, an educated Associate can best assist our Clients, so we can just do deals that Make A Difference which is what made it possible for us to be here for you.

You are in the right place, at the right time to take advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity
