Dear Steve, You WOWed Us – Thank You! Thank you so much for your time, your generosity and your engagement with our recent property management leadership summit ALPPPS™ held in Australia. Oh, and I should also mention, thank you for your amazing presentation. I observed the audience and they were in awe and totally immersed in your presentation. We had so much wonderful feedback from the delegates after your presentation. They want you back. We want you back. You shared your incredible journey and gave life to your presentation.  Your presentation style took us back to the time of your life you took us back too. In fact, it felt as if we were right there with you at the time it all happened. We had so much wonderful feedback from the delegates after your presentation. You also provided the delegates with resources and tools to support the delegates with an implementation of leadership strategies. They not only worked away feeling inspired, they were empowered, which was the objective of our leadership summit.  We are also very grateful for your generosity to our charity for indigenous youth in donating your book to raise funds for this cause. On top of all that, you are real, authentic and completely immerse yourself in the summit and with the delegates and for that, we are sincerely grateful.  Thank you, Steve. I would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending you as a keynote speaker for any style of conference or convention. You nailed it! You are one of the best. With gratefulness,

Dear  Steve, Warm greetings. Our heartfelt thanks to you for generously sharing your knowledge and giving emphasis not only on the need to be competent, organized, conquering our fears but also valuing relationships. Your amazing passion to create an impact by helping us master ourselves, taking interest in adding value to ourselves, improving our career trajectory through continuous learning improvement of ourselves and others gives us a clearer direction of living a more purposeful life.  I appreciate that you have incorporated our sense of responsibility for other people and how improving our character and attitude (esp. humility and being forgiving) will consequently keep us focused in our servant leadership. In the meantime, we take the accountability of creating an impact, while we pray for your continued journey to success. Thank you for being a wonderful blessing to all of us.    

Edna Sutter

Governor | Rotary International District 3830 | Rotary Year 2016 to 2017

Steve is inspiring, enthusiastic, and an awesomely authentic speaker. Steve spoke at the 2017 Rotary International District 3830 Conference where over 3,300 Rotarians from major cities in Metropolitan Manila in the Philippines operate from. The district covers Makati City, Taguig City, Pateros, Paranaque City, Muntinlupa City, Las Pinas City and the province of Palawan; all-important economic centers driving the growth of the country.  He was an effective and engaging speaker and the participants were moved by his sharing of his true-to-life stories that connected him to the crowd. The Rotarians from our district are accomplished and experienced leaders from various industries who find fulfillment by sharing their time, talent, and treasure to make a difference to the lives of people in the communities they work with. The conference included a sizable delegation composed of community and civic leaders whose associations are rotary’s partners in service. Steve listened intently to the questions raised at the Q&A and sensitively shared his very practical, straightforward insights that demonstrated his thought leadership.  The annual conference is the most important occasion of every rotary district and it offers a great opportunity for Rotarians and their partners in service to gather for fellowship and to learn from each other. Through this event, it is hoped to inspire, and, in the process, renews everyone’s commitment to the often difficult task of balancing one’s personal life and business life with Rotary style public service. Steve did just that. Hearing from thought leaders is a very important component that rotary requires for the event. It is truly a gift to have heard and learned this year from such a grounded and truly motivational speaker like Steve Rodgers. The crowd simply loved him.  Thank you, Steve. We wish you more power and continued success!

"Steve Rodgers is a rock star! I've had the pleasure of him working with one of our companies to assist with the strategic planning. With his experience, connections, perspective, and general intuition on how to engage others, Steve provided invaluable counsel throughout several projects. After spending countless hours with him on a whiteboard, I'm pleased to consider Steve a friend and an ally, and will gladly collaborate with him on future projects."

After ten years of being mentored and coached by Steve Rodgers, I am well aware of what a unique opportunity it’s been to be lead and inspired by someone that lives what they teach. He is a master at authentically inspiring all to achieve beyond levels of complacency or normal. His approach to life and business takes away the ordinary, forcing a new perspective and vision to live into. Go for the Gold!

Andy Steuer

Entrepreneur in Residence at Idealab | Founder of Gigway

Steve is a pioneer. As the CEO of Prudential California Realty, Steve has taken an active approach to internet marketing, and leads his company by example. Unlike many CEOs of real estate companies, Steve embraces technology, and has a way of explaining the complexities of online marketing in simple terms so Prucal agents can be successful by using the tools that the company has made available to them. Steve is a leader, and it's clear to me why he is so well respected by his peers: he has a clear vision, and invites you to be part of his team. I enjoy working with him, and look forward to more.

Terri and I have known Steve since the early 1990's and watched him rise to the CEO of our company. He is an excellent leader. We feel that he has our best interest at heart - always. Every organization mirrors the personality of the person at the top.  That is why Prudential California Realty is such a wonderful place to work.

Steve has the unique ability to be both very bottom-line oriented, hard-driving, all the while an excellent people-oriented manager who people want to work hard for. He is one of the most outstanding leaders I have had the pleasure of knowing for many years. I recommend him without reservation. He is genuine and has the utmost integrity, and is an all-around great man. I'm very glad to count him as a good friend and colleague.  I have so very much enjoyed working with Steve for many reasons. He has a keen understanding of management, having been a CEO of one of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway companies. I saw him in this capacity being an outstanding manager of a large operation. I admire his personal sense of values, his amazing resilience, and entrepreneurial spirit. I would highly recommend Steve and his consulting services that would help enhance your business and life!

Steve is a true professional, a principled and honest man, a great leader and speaker. He has been an inspiration to me for many many years and to hear him speak is to understand his outstanding connection with his audience, his passion, and his ideals.

I can't begin to express my admiration for your accomplishments. While working with you for the past 8 years, I have come to not only respect but truly admire the tremendous leadership skills you have shown in your position. There are many people that possess the ability to hold down a high-ranking job - there are very few who can hold the job without sacrificing their compassion, fortitude, and ethics in the process. You are an amazing man and I seriously doubt that there is mountain too high for you to climb. I am honored to provide my companies services to yours, I am thankful for your friendship and I am excited about the future hope you bring along with you on the road to success. I could not think of a better person to recommend in the real estate sales arena, you are one in a million.

Jim McNabb
