After 10 years in the Motion Picture industry, California entrepreneur Fred McCubbin has seen it all. He has prospered in the real estate challenges we have every day! After producing two films and Post Production work on numerous union and non-union projects, Fred decided to move from Los Angeles, away from the hectic Hollywood life style and began his Real Estate IT coaching and training company in the Palm Springs area. Being from a family of Real Estate Agents, Fred joined the multitude of real estate agents in the early '90s and began training and consulting regionally in Southern California for First American Title, a fortune 300 top leading title insurance company based out of Santa Ana, CA.
He quickly made affiliations with great industry speakers such as Walter Sanford, Jason Hartman and Mark Leader, and based his farming and contact management classes to reflect the great marketing and branding lessons he learned from these Real Estate speakers he befriended. With several "out of the box" innovations, he quickly gained the trust and respect of all Real Estate brokers and managers in the Riverside and San Bernardino Counties as the leading real estate IT speaker. He was one of the pioneers in content managed sites found at Deluxe Agent before Agents even knew the meaning of the terms "Web 2.0, Blogs and SEO".
In 2004, Fred helped develop a client-based free contact management system called Realty DataLink. The Agents found this software to be very user-friendly and cost-efficient. The software differed from the average everyday farming tool because it was designed by a mind that understood both Real Estate and software development. It is to this day one of the most dominant client-based programs used by Agents to do everyday farming and marketing and helps save them on not having monthly fees. It was at this time Fred began his great challenge for creating an online version of his solutions, which would help Agents with their every day contact management and contact follow-up as well as proving to be so user-friendly and easy to learn that the average real estate Agent would be able to learn the solution without investing so much time into the training that goes with it.
Having received his working certificate from USC film school under the great Motion Picture and Science Professor Milton Timmons, Fred decided to help the Real Estate industry by introducing his ideas for affordable Real Estate video tours as well as Video "Blogs" which would soon become the way of the future in Real Estate marketing and online social networking. These solutions can be found at the Real Estate Video Pros site. He also started his own online Radio shows on Realty Talk Radio, a place to explore and discuss Real Estate marketing and branding with all the technology that fuels it all.
As an innovator and creator of over 15 years in the real estate IT business, Fred is one of Southern California's most-requested speakers, providing vital and current information to beginning and advanced REALTORS®, brokers and managers.
He currently resides in the sunny Palm Springs, California and continues to strive in his goals of maintaining his title of the leading Real Estate IT speaker and consultant. As an influential character in his community, Fred regularly donates hours to Youth programs as well as acting as a judge for the Riverside Occupational Programs. He likes to prepare the youth for the business world by teaching them the intricate solutions in computer science industry as well as teaching them how to use it for obtaining better jobs as young outstanding residents in their communities.
