I met Rik in August 1997 at a seminar in Melbourne Australia. In 2001 he contacted me about a keynote presentation slot at the Australasia Real Estate Conference (AREC), the largest real estate conference in the southern hemisphere. He was the point person on all the arrangements, introduced me to 1,200 wonderful Australians who rewarded me with standing ovation. To this day it is one of my favorite, most memorable presentations.
Over the years he has helped me speak at four more ARECs and many other events in his country.
He is a consummate gentleman, loving family man, polished presenter, a top performer in residential real estate sale, and most recently an author of his first book The Power of Connection published by Wiley. I have enjoyed spending time with his wife Gai and children Chris, Lockey & Amelia. Thank you Rik for all you have done for me.
