MEET OUR COACHES

KATE SIMON

Coach

Kate was introduced to real-estate at the young age of 19, as one of Jeff Glover’s first Inside Sales Associates. Kate immersed herself in Jeffs coaching, training and approach to high-volume selling. While working for Jeff, Kate learned the value of discipline by following a proven model, and soon found her passion to be outside of just what she was learning in college, and inside the systems and models taught by Jeff Glover.  

 

After completing her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Kate returned to Jeff Glover & Associates full-time, where she completed “JGA Boot camp” for the second time, and graduated to an outside sales associate. While learning the ropes as a new agent, Kate earned the title “Rookie of the Year”, closing 40 homes within her first 12 months of selling.

 

In 2013, Kate took the invaluable lessons taught by Jeff and rebuilt her real-estate business from the ground up in Orange County, California, where she continues to be a high producing agent. Kates introduction to her coaching career happened in 2013, when she found herself having weekly conversations with agents regarding how to take their business to the next level through effective prospecting, presenting and accountability.

 

Kate’s passion for coaching lies is identifying a client’s most needed area of growth, coming up with a plan of action, and watching both their personal life AND business transform because of it. Kate believes strongly in the values and systems taught by Jeff to help agents not only transform their business, but transform their lives.

ANTHONY BERTRAND

Coach

Born and raised in the Detroit area, I have always had dreams and aspirations of a thriving career in real estate. With a child and young adulthood filled with sporting activities, I have always had the instilled habits of hard work, sacrifice, competition at a high level, and the drive to do more than the competition. With that being said, the mindset that I continue to maintain is that of, “Its all about We, Not Me” (this goes for my clients, customers, and team). After graduating from a Performing Arts High School in the Metro Area, with the Top Male GPA and being the top 1% of my graduating class of over 150 students, I had the options to go to many college’s across the country. I ended up attending Eastern Michigan University since it was in a convenient area for me and they offered a Academic Scholarship.

After 2 years at EMU I entered the field of sales. At the time like many entry level sales people, you tend to come into a large industry with high hopes and not knowing much of what to expect. After putting in the extra hours, working diligently on what changes I needed to make to adapt to this business, and making the necessary commitments; I immediately noticed that I practiced the characteristics that you need for success in this business all my life. With those being some of my strongest qualities, I knew I was in it for the long haul. I would simply be living my purpose. Which is why I decided that working with the most powerful Real Estate sales team in Michigan would be a natural fit for me.

 

After much time in the actually Real Estate Sales field I have figured that my true passion is not only to help and give great service to the customers that I am fortunate to encounter, but also to help Real Estate Professionals take their skills to the next level. Over the years I have spent countless hours studying the field of sales and taking action on building my personal business. Thru that experience I have an advanced understanding of what it takes to help a Real Estate professional start, take, or grow a sales business to the next level. I am committed to results and truly believe that winning does matter. Let me help you not only compete, but dominate your marketplace.

JOLYNNE MERCIECA

Coach

Selling real estate is one of my absolute loves in life! There is nothing more exciting than helping your clients accomplish their goals, and walking alongside them through the process. I began as an assistant in the real estate business in 2007 while I was finishing up my degree in Business Administration from the University of Michigan. After graduation, I decided to join the real estate field full time and become an agent in 2010. 

I have been working with the Jeff Glover team since 2009 and could not be more proud of the professional, knowledgeable and reliable team that we have grown to be. I was awarded the “Top Block Sales Award” in 2014 for my exceptional customer service towards my clients and have maintained that level of service since.

 

Through working at JGA, I have learned how to run an "Unreal" business and learn everything I can to be the best sales person possible. I tend to thrive when I am helping others succeed, which has led me to be a part of our Glover U team. I am always here to help as a coach, colleague and mentor to as many agents as I can be. If there is anything I can help you with, I’m only a phone call away!

KRISTY GLOVER

Coach

Sales has been a passion of mine for over 10 years now. I began my Sales career in the Automotive Industry in 2004. In 2009 when my brother Jeff opened his new office, I realized that I have always had a curiosity and passion for Real Estate and decided that was the time to make the transition! I have been selling full time since 2009 and have sold over 300 homes since that time! I continue to work as a full time agent and take great pride in providing top notch service 100% of the time.  My experience has taught me to be a great negotiator and to always put my clients first.

I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. I grew up in Southeast Michigan and remain active in the community supporting such organizations as the Michigan Humane Society and the American Cancer Society, where I have been a Team Leader/participant for Relay for Life for 5 straight years.

Kristy was awarded the “Top Producer Award” in 2017 for having 55 homes sold and 12 million in sales. An award she has been proud to have received over the past 5 years.
