You can count on Robyn’s life coaching skills to help you define and achieve your real estate goals. She will support you in making your next move your best move.
Robyn’s training and certification as a Life and Personal Development Coach as well as 20 years experience as a Realtor creates a powerful combination for you when it comes to making it through the sometimes stressful process of buying or selling. She will listen and ask questions until you are all clear about what you want to achieve.
When asked what area she specializes in, Robyn’s favorite answer is “wherever a client’s dream takes me.” She cares more about nurturing a good working relationship with you than just completing another transaction. That could mean telling you that selling your home may not be the best solution, or that buying a particular home isn’t a good idea.
A client, Toni, recently told her that she really appreciated that Robyn would not let her settle. After getting really clear about what their family wanted (acreage, room to add a small home for mom, a shop for dad), Toni's family ended up with the perfect home even though it took a while to find.
In another situation, Noah, a previous buyer, called Robyn saying they needed to sell because they were outgrowing their home. Robyn created a sketch of their existing floorplan and showed them how to increase the size of the kitchen, and add another bedroom, thus being able to stay in their current home and the neighborhood that they love. It cost her a listing, but in the end, it’s really a matter of trust—earning it and maintaining it and doing what’s best for her clients.
How do Robyn’s clients and friends describe her? “She’s incredibly patient, a good listener, asks great questions, and is a calming presence—someone I can call if I’m stressing and she will settle me back down.” Robyn admits her role is often part therapist, counselor, financial adviser, mother, father, coach, and teacher. She brings all of her teaching, coaching, negotiation, and facilitation skills to the table to produce the best possible outcomes for you.
Robyn says, "I consider it a privilege to work with people's goals and dreams. My intention is to create a collaborative, win-win experience for buyers and sellers. I recognize the importance of good communication with everyone involved in a transaction-- the Realtors on each side of the transaction, the buyers or sellers whose lives are affected by our ability to work together, lenders, title and escrow officers, inspectors, appraisers—all of us are important."
Robyn has certifications as a Life Coach, Canfield Breakthrough to Success Coach, and Conversational Intelligence Coach. She also is certified as a Negotiation Expert, Short Sale Consultant, Residential Specialist, and has earned classification as an Outstanding Life Member of Sacramento Association of Realtors Masters Club. She is a active member of Sacramento Rotary Club where she has served on the Board of Directors.
On a more personal note, Robyn helps people recovering from major setbacks look forward with possibility instead of backward with grief. She coaches and speaks from personal experience. She is very familiar with change and needing to find your inner strength. She has been through a divorce, financial challenges, and the death of her son.
On July 25, 2013, she received a call that her youngest son Resh Michael, age 36, had been killed in a tragic auto accident. In her personal journey through grief, she discovered it is possible to use the rich soil of sorrow to grow, expand, and deepen our connection to life and to love. She speaks about learning to live joyfully from a broken-open heart.
"From Grief to Grace to Transformation" is Robyn’s gentle, self-paced, online healing program created for those who have lost loved ones and want to find peace of mind and reconnect with their joy and happiness. More can be learned at www.robyndelong.com. She has also published three books: "From Grief to Grace…a Mother’s Journey"; "From Grief to Grace…an Upward Spiral of Healing"; and "Moments of Stillness". They are all available on Amazon.
Robyn is in the process of creating an online portal that is a resource for finding courses, coaches, books, podcasts, speakers, retreats, websites that focus on hope and empowerment in times of deep grief—a portal that supports using the process of grief to grow, to use the pain of heart break as a doorway to greater joy and happiness, and to be able to choose peace of mind and move forward into gratitude and grace.
Some of her presentations plus an interview with Jack Canfield can be found on YouTube, as can some of her son Resh Michael’s songs and videos. Robyn has been personally coached by great transformational teachers including Jack Canfield, Mary Morrissey, Wayne Dyer, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Lynne McTaggart, Judith Glaser, and Bob Proctor.
