Having known personally Mr Froy Candelario and Mr Neil Schwartz, i can say that i noticed two things in common... They both focus in their business 100% and both fight to keep focused on it each day. There's No magic formulas here, just hard work and to be constant. They prospect Daily whether in the mood or not, Keep their teams focused and both take care of their families. Both follow the MF system and are succesful. Definitely two good role models with a simple, and unexpensive workable system: prospecting.

^^^^ I don't know if he was a complete sham but I don't think he did the volume that was rumored.

I have heard a recorded one on one conference call with Froy and Mike Ferry. Apparently he deals mainly with the Hispanic market per his conversation.

He stated that his schedule was like this:

3:30am - Gym

6:30am - 2pm If a light is on at a home in the morning, he knocks on the door. Expireds, FSBO or whatever.

2pm-4pm - Calls Expired, FSBO, Past clients calls looking for referrals.

4pm-6pm - He meets new clients and they come to his office. His staff runs through his listing presentation, the CMA then they send them to Froy for about 5 minutes and they sign the listing agreement. He said that he list 6-8 houses a day.

^^^ I don't know how much I believe this but if you have the right staff who can handle the volume I don't really see why it wouldn't be possible. He only handles face to face with people and nothing else is handled by him. His staff did everything else.

I don't think he is active anymore and heard that he burned out.

I'm not saying that those numbers are not possible. Just that Froy doesn't have them. There is no proof, mls, escrow, or title data to support them.

I've hung out with the guy and Froy is a cool guy. He even did a deal in AZ with a friend of mine where he found both listing and buyer on his own and my friend just served as the agent of record in AZ. I'm sure he does well, but I think he let the hype of Superstar retreats get to him and he exaggerated numbers for recognition.

The myth continues. I was in L.A.County about a month ago and when I go any where real estate related In SoCal I always ask about Froy. This time most of my activity was near the Barrio and guess what, no one had met or done business with him, Wow, what a surprise.

I heard Froy was a door knocking expert?

Here is the story I remember hearing from Mike Ferry at a seminar years ago...

Froy was a Mexican orphan, who grew up in a cave with a donkey, moved to USA to pound nails on roofs, and did not speak English when he started in the business. (No kidding.)

Froy went to a Ferry seminar and asked Mike what to do on a break. The communication barrier resulted in one message, "just knock on doors all day long".

Froy committed, knocked doors for 6 hours per day, and walked through 7 cities per year.

Froy lined up sellers in his office at night for group listing appointments. It consisted of sellers reading a set of rules posted on the walls. Then signing with Froy.

Froy closed 400 transactions per year and grossed $2.4 million per year.

That was the story I remember hearing (it really stuck with me).

BUT $22.5 million GCI. Does that sound right?

How much sales volume would he have to sell?

$700 million? $800 million? In one year?

Maybe huge a company. One agent?

Sounds like lore.

One part of the myth that is true is that Froy comes from a poor area of Mexico. I've hung out with him and it's really interesting because I'm a native Spanish speaker and Froys Spanish is not very good at all. I asked him why and it turns out his first language is a native dialect.

This is the guy did very well for himself. My dad who's been in agent in the San Fernando Valley and is not a Mike Ferry guy had heard of this little mexican guy who sells a bunch by door knocking. The numbers just got blown out of proportion.

He is very real. You can add whatever production numbers you want. Doesnt matter. The point is that he outprospected and outworked most if not all agents. So what's not to admire?

I have to agree. I did spend the day with him way back in 94 or 95. I can't say that I've seen him sell xxx homes but his work ethic was admirable. I'd like to emulate that.

Heres his website: http://froy-candelario.myrealestateplaza.com

The rumors appear to be a 'Ferry' Tale.

One thing I know about the Ferry tales is a lot of the "top, top" producers there call out thier volume by what their whole business closes. For example a Broker with 20+ agents with an average ppp of 12 deals a year will say they close 240+ sales a year on stage for the Ferry events. What they should do is have each agent come up to get their credit.

I agree 100%. Needless to say this guy has no life, no kids, etc.. There is no way if you are doing that much business. UNLESS, of course he has a full team doing the work for him and he is taking all the credit. But more power to him.
