Adam is a natural born entrepreneur. His aptitude for success is due to his ability to foresee problems in a business and implement a plan for optimal performance.

He launched his first venture at just 15 years old. Adam began an electronic business located in flea markets across Ontario and grew it into both an online and retail business over a period of 5 years. He eventually sold it at the age of 20 as he saw the industry shifting.

Shortly after, Adam was given the opportunity to work with a small commercial real estate holdings company and explore the realm of real estate management. His interest in residential and commercial real estate led him to managing the company’s entire real estate portfolio within a year. Adam negotiated leases to increase revenue and established strategies to dramatically cut expenses.
By 25 years old, Adam was already an award-winning realtor for Royal LePage. However, Adam knew his skill-set was more inclined towards business development and decided to explore the idea of mentorship.

Adam put his passion to practice and developed a mentorship program for the biggest Royal LePage in Canada (Royal Lepage Your Community), which grossed hundreds of thousands of dollars for new Realtors. He became known for his strong public speaking, his ability to motivate others through humour and his “out-of-the-box” thinking strategies. The responses from agents and the results from his mentorship program were overwhelming. Working with Adam over the years, some of these agents became top producing Realtors.

In 2013 Adam was named Toronto Office Manager for the companies Toronto Office.

“It is gratifying to have become one of the youngest managers on TREB at 29 years old, for the biggest Royal Lepage brokerage in Canada.”

Adam was instrumental in growing agents’ businesses by implementing online and offline marketing strategies for individual agents as well as the brokerage.

In 2015, Adam competed in a recruiting challenge (the Buffini Brokerage Challenge) against the top 50 brokers/managers in all of Canada and won.

Today, Adam has trained over 1,200 realtors and continues to look for new ways to improve the real estate industry.

At this time, Adam has been contracted as the Business Development Manager at Harvey Kalles Real Estate LTD.

“Having the privilege to manage, train and develop the most respected producers in the industry, grossing close to $3 Billion in sales (*2016), motivates me to continue striving for greater, smarter and more innovative ways to improve the business of those around me.”

Dear Adam,

I joined Royal Lepage Your Community because I felt that the company offered an environment that would be both supportive and inspiring. I did not know what to expect from Phase 4.

I imagined it would be a crash course on the procedural doctrine of the Brokerage. Little did I know that my assumption could not be farther from the truth. Phase 4, is a brilliant introduction into the inner workings of the industry.

You created an environment that was open and engaging which allowed us to be honest with our insecurities. And you did it without making us feeling judged for our "greenness". You often incorporated real life experiences into the instruction to illustrate your points which served to make us feel less intimidated by the plethora of the unknowns. You clarified much of our confusion, illustrated the importance of being proactive on our paths to success and motivated us to stay focused on the most important aspects of this business.

I think you brought class and enthusiasm to the group and it was infectious. I value your knowledge and passion for what you do and I believe that the program you have created sets this Brokerage apart from all others.

Hey Adam

I just wanted to say thanks for your help and training in phase 4. 

I found that everything you had discussed was valuable information. We talked about listings and presentation and asking questions. Also working with buyers and not letting them take advantage and waist my time.

These are just some of the things I was dealing with during the course that I found extra helpful.

Thanks again

Hi Adam, 

Thank You for delivering a great training program at Your Community Realty Real Estate Academy! You made the program so much engaging and relatable that it was a pleasure to put the theory into practice after each class. Your passion about real estate is infectious… And, you truly inspired me to achieve higher goals, by believing in me and encouraging me to reach out past my boundaries. From the first day of your course, I quickly developed a sense of respect and admiration for your professionalism and knowledge. Your hands-on coaching helped me to realize the nuances in real estate workings that I implement in my business every single day… Every time I remember the key points from your guidance about buying and selling real estate, servicing clients, handling objections, setting up expectations, dealing with various involved parties...

With your natural sense of humour and examples of real-life scenarios, you added a lot of charm to our training sessions. In fact, you are one of the rare few who can keep an audience interested in subjects as scary as “dealing with FSBOs”, “discussing silly marketing fees”, “handling commission questions”, “making a deal”.It’s a pleasure to know you and work with you at Royal LePage Your Community Realty. And, thanks for your continuous support!

Hi Adam,

I participated in your Phase 4 training for the month of July on Thursdays. I'd like to take the time to thank you for leading an exceptionally educational and inspiring four weeks of training. I learned quite a bit about the business, and your techniques in communicating with potential clients are stellar. I look forward to employing your techniques in my own day-to-day prospecting and business development. Thank you once again for leading such a great training course.

Best regards,

Dear Adam,

I am writing you this short note to thank you for the exceptional service you provided to my family and I.  Hiring you to handle the sale of our family’s investment prosperities came with a big set of challenges, some of which had nothing to do with Real Estate.  I want to thank you on behalf of my entire family for handling this complicated situation with professionalism and class.  You and your team helped us achieve prices we never thought were possible thanks to your amazing negotiation skills as well as knowledge about the current marketplace.  We can never thank you enough!

Adam is an amazing manager and a consummate sales person at heart. He goes above and beyond the call of duty in order to help each and every one of us at Royal LePage Your Community succeed. He has an expansive knowledge base of the industry and freely passes on tips and tricks to all his agents so that we can all take the knowledge and grow from it. Best Brokerage by far. Thanks Adam for your continued support and I look forward to many years here at RLPYCR

Just wanted to let you know that I’ve really enjoyed the FSBO Boot Camp thus far and look forward to finally converting one to a listing. Additionally, you’ve brought many ideas and suggestions to the table that I’ve yet to hear in the 8 or 9 years that I’ve been in the business and some of those with coaching.

I would like to send a note primarily thanking you for putting together the mentorship program through the YCR Academy. I enrolled in mid February and since then I haven’t looked back.

Adam Stern has been an amazing mentor! His knowledge in delivering value, professionalism, selling techniques and negotiating skills just to name a few, have helped me tremendously and has given me not just hope but results in my business. I have been into situations with leads and prospects that I would had never had the chance to be in before joining the program!

Other than Adam always being there 24/7 when I had a question or a situation arose, the thing that struck me the most was that he would try and work with my personality and not on my personality. Adam identified things in me that by working on them I would gain trust in prospects’ eyes and deliver value but always in my own way and the way that I was comfortable with. He would always fine-tune and see if a specific technique would be a fit for me.  Like a true coach, he was helping me get into situations with tools to create success.

I would definitely recommend Adam to any realtor whether new or seasoned!

When I first got my licence I was nervous and not really sure where to begin.  Real Estate school alone does not prepare you for the venture that lies ahead. Doing your mentorship program gave me the knowledge and confidence that I needed to proceed in this business. I looked forward to meeting with you every week as I always left feeling inspired.  I appreciate that you were always available to answer my questions or guide me when I was unsure.  I would strongly recommend you as a mentor/coach to any new agent.  I feel that with your help I am now off to a great start which will turn into a long prosperous career.

Once again thank you so much for all that you have done. I look forward to working with you in future.

"I had the pleasure of recently attending Adam Stern’s FSBO Boot Camp and succeeded in achieving in four short weeks what I hadn’t managed to in a year.  Adam has an enviable ability to combine his expertise in and knowledge of real estate into a memorable teaching experience. He succeeds in maximizing learning by drawing from real-life situations, and showing us how to convert objections into powerful ways to connect with leads and gain trust.  Adam is positive and encouraging and makes every effort to ensure that we receive not only the instruction we need but also valuable transferable skills that are not limited to prospecting FSBO’s.  For those agents who are struggling to find leads, get listings, or close deals this course is not simply advisable, it’s mandatory!"

Thanks again for all your help with landing my first listing!  I look forward to working with you in the future.


Great, Now what can you do with your commission?

A Seller hires/signs a listing agreement with a Realtor for the sale of their home.  At the time of signing, all terms and conditions of the listing agreement were agreed to by both the Seller and the listing agent. (Commission and price included) Three (3) days after...

How much is my home worth? How much do you Charge?

When a prospective seller interviews a Realtor to sell their home, these two questions seem to be the most important. Wouldn’t a typical seller lean to the Realtor who gives them the highest price and cheapest commission? Most sellers are only concerned about how much...

Buyers – “Save the Commission”

Have you toyed with the idea of not using an agent to find your home?  With all the latest technology being used to sell homes today, some buyers can argue the need for a Realtor to help find what they can already find themselves.  Most listings get uploaded to public...

Are all Agents the Same?

During our latest managers meeting, I had the opportunity to review some industry numbers. While the numbers didn’t shock me, the disconnect between the public opinion of "all agents are the same" to the facts and numbers did. As of September 2013, the Toronto Real...

And We Are Live!!!

I've always wanted to make my own personal website.  With very little "know-how"  I finally did it, in under 3 days.  I'm excited to start sharing my thoughts about life, Real estate, training, coaching, Personal favs, and of course I will have to add some hockey...
