A career in real estate can be a challenge, but with a mentor like Robert Henry, it’s possible to find the focus, drive, and passion you need to succeed.Real estate is a client-centered career path, and many Realtors do what they do out of a strong desire to help people realize the American Dream. However, matching clients with properties is a small part of the process; managing negotiations, handling stressful situations, and keeping emotions in check can take a toll on even the most seasoned professionals. When paired with the seasonal variability and uncontrollable market conditions, it’s easy to understand why roughly 60% of new agents fail within a year and 80% fail within five.
Rather than allowing new agents to chart unfamiliar territory alone, Robert realized there had to be a better way to help passionate Realtors succeed. Offering support, guidance, and a compassionate approach, it’s his mission to help agents explore life changing opportunities while becoming the best they can be – for themselves, their clients, and their loved ones.
Bringing Value to the Real Estate Experience
Since 2009, Robert has been forging his way in the real estate world, choosing to begin his career as a Realtor after numerous disappointing interactions with Real Estate agents as a Builder and General Contractor. After completing his education, however, Robert quickly discovered that there was a lack of proven training and mentoring available. Too many new agents were relying on classroom learning rather than hands-on guidance, struggling through early transactions without the proper assistance.
In order to set himself apart from the rest, Robert sought out top performing real estate agents throughout the country to discover what techniques and skills they employed to succeed, even in market downturns. Throughout his study, he quickly realized that while knowing the effective methods of top agents is useful, a key element to success requires a mastery of effective communication.
Two key phrases left an indelible impression with Robert: “Your business will grow exponentially at the rate you work on your own personal development and leadership,” and, “your earnings will reflect the value you bring to others.”
The Start of a Powerful Duo
Robert’s road to succeed in real estate wasn’t conventional, leading him to seek more formal training. In order to achieve his goals, Robert took part in the personal development and leadership training organizations with industry leader Landmark Education, eventually becoming a leadership coach in one of their most rigorous training programs. It was here that he met Cambria – now his wife and business partner.
Together, Robert and Cambria decided to apply their training and leadership skills to the real estate industry, taking on promising young agents in order to foster industry growth and development. And it worked – agents who participated in the training provided by Robert and Cambria outperformed the average new agent by over 400%.
After seeing their success in action, it was time for the next step. In 2015, Robert and Cambria launched their own brokerage, Haven Real Estate Group, in the historic Washington Cracker building in downtown Spokane. Within a year, they grew their practice to be one of the top twenty real estate brokerages in Spokane, meeting client demands while motivating new agents to become all they can be.
Training to Succeed
Today, Cambria works directly with Haven’s new agent training program. Through her work with new agents, she provides daily training and coaching in addition to providing new marketing and leads designed to promote financial success. By teaching her trainees how to truly engage with clients, she is able to bring an extraordinary level of value, skill and communication to agents’ real estate transactions
Robert spends his time working with more experienced agents, helping them to grow their business and develop leadership skills while still maintaining a work-life balance. He is passionate about working with others to accomplish more while also creating more meaningful time in their lives with their loved ones.
Robert is a national public speaker on topics ranging from personal development to real estate training. He is also a certified real estate clock hour course instructor for the State of Washington.

Cambria is consistently ranked one of the top ten Realtors® in Spokane and is also one of the top rated real estate agents in the country; however, the distinction that is most meaningful to her is that she enjoys one of the highest satisfaction reviews from clients on both Zillow.com and Trulia.com, the top real estate search platforms used by consumers to find homes.
“I work hard to set myself apart from other agents. Some of the ways I do this is by not only finding you a home that fits your needs but finding you the home that you love! I also ensure that you do not pay too much for the home.
Once you find a home I run my own competitive market analysis. I do this because 97% of homes listed are priced ABOVE market value. I use the market analysis to recommend an offer price for you AND to justify your price in negotiations with the other real estate agent. On average my clients save over $5000 using this method.
Cambria Henry has a background and experience in Construction Management; she is the founder of a recruiting firm in Houston; and, worked several years as a leadership coach for a worldwide personal development company.

A native of the inland Northwest, Spokane Realtor, Caleb Glemaker grew up in a large family just north of Spokane. His passion for the real estate industry was triggered by his country upbringing, where he was exposed to large spreads of land and houses.
Caleb worked alongside his father, a local builder who ran his own construction company in the region, which gave him in-depth knowledge of how the industry works. At the tender age of 18, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served in the air transportation field. He then transferred to the reserves, which allowed him to return to Spokane and work full-time in his father’s construction company.
Caleb took over his father’s company, then ran his own construction company beginning in 2007 and specializing in residential remodeling and building. His motto was always “It’s perfect, but it will have to do,” and his goal was to produce homes customers are delighted with, bringing their dream residences to life through design, planning and architecture.
With his strong customer-centric focus, Caleb has always delivered fast and friendly service with close attention to detail. This attitude led him into his next venture: real estate.

I was born and raised in Spokane and graduated from Eastern Washington University. Through High School and College, I worked for a small local company, performing background checks on perspective employees and tenants. I started as a data entry clerk and worked my way up to office manager, developing relationships with local Property Owners, Property Managers and Brokers. At Eastern I studied a wide array of subjects, earning minors in Women’s studies and Geography. I most enjoyed Sociology classes as I love learning about social and human behavior. After graduation, I moved to the Seattle area for a couple years before returning to Spokane, to be near my family again.
Upon returning, I started an 8-year long career as a 911 call receiver with Spokane County. This kind of public service position was very demanding, but extremely rewarding. During my career, I thrived in this type of detail oriented fast paced environment. After several years I became a Certified Training Officer, as well as a mentor, helping new employees advance through the intensive training program. Although I enjoyed answering 911 calls, I found the most rewarding aspect to be when I was helping new employees successfully complete the training process, some even going on to become trainers themselves. I undertook a lot of leadership training during the course of my career and learned how to empower people and lead them to success.
I moved on from 911, to pursue a career in Real Estate and further develop my passion for helping people achieve their goals. I bring a knowledge and understanding of the Spokane community and its neighborhoods. I thrive when working in a fast-paced environment and bring integrity and the highest commitment to service. I look forward to guiding you through the buying and selling process. Buying a house should be fun, I know my buying my first home was an exciting time and I want to bring that same, positive transaction to you. I am here to answer any questions and with the support and experience of my team at Touchstone Real Estate I know you will have a phenomenal experience.
Please call, text or email, I would love to work for you.

Spokane Realtor, Laszlo Kiss thrives on being great at anything he decides to do. “There’s no better feeling than being able to help someone in need with something I’m good at. Looking back on my 20 year Air Force career in aircraft maintenance, I received the most satisfaction out of helping new Airmen learn something that would help them down the road in their career”.
Whether it was reassuring a pilot regarding questions about an aircraft they were about to fly, or a new maintainer who was unsure about troubleshooting a particular system and just needed that little bit of guidance and mentoring to realize the confidence they didn’t know they had. Its a wonderful feeling being able to help people in those and similar situations.
“I’m drawn to Real Estate because to me it presents a similar challenge of knowing my job and being a professional in those critical moments. After all, for most people buying or selling a home is critical because it represents one of the biggest and most stressful situations, both financially and personally”.
It may not be as critical and high stress as fixing an aircraft on time so it can make its mission to support soldiers in direct contact but I believe its close enough to require a similar amount of knowledge, confidence and integrity to get the job done right. That is my approach to real estate. I don’t just want to be good at it and know market information. I want to make the difference when it counts the most.
When a client’s heart is set on that one particular home that fits the image they’ve had in mind for maybe years, I want to be the person they can look to without any doubts, knowing that if there is something that can be done to help them realize that dream, I’ll do it without them having to ask.
That’s the level of service I feel I owe to clients as a Real Estate Agent. I feel fortunate to be working with Haven Real Estate Group knowing the whole team shares my desire to provide the highest level of service and integrity to clients.
Spokane Realtor® Lisa Funkhouser-Obrien visited Spokane 10 years ago and never looked back. She fell in love with the beautiful Northwest and the people it encompasses. Ever since Lisa was a teenager, she would drive around neighborhoods, looking at architecture of homes, the landscape, dreaming of the possibilities each one would hold; so it was only natural that she would gravitate towards real estate as a career.
Throughout her career as a Player Development Executive in Las Vegas and her career as an insurance agent in Spokane, she learned to pay attention to every detail. Lisa throughout her career has had a long record of success, building a strong relationship with her clientele. Her specific areas of expertise are in sales, marketing, customer service and organizing events, leaving no stone unturned, she will never leave her Real Estate clients guessing. From the very first phone call, Lisa will use her years of experience to communicate every step of buying or selling a home to her client. In her free time, you can find her walking the centennial trail, relaxing reading a book at a local coffee shop or riding 4 wheelers with her husband. Engaging in her community is also a big passion along with the love for all animals. She has volunteered for the Spokane Humane Society over 4 years and for Big Brother’s, Big Sisters each year for their Back to School Event.
Spokane Realtor Nicolette Samash is passionate about living and working in the Spokane area. When she initially decided to move from her home in Fairbanks, Alaska, she searched long and hard for a new place to call home before landing in Spokane.
Spokane’s diversity immediately impressed Nicolette. She says, “There’s a little something for everyone — from hiking to snowboarding, nightlife to volunteering, and concerts to wine tastings.” Nicolette is confident that like her, others can find their calling in the Spokane area, and her mission is to make that as easy as possible for new arrivals to the area. She recalls fondly how welcoming the community was when she arrived from thousands of miles away. As soon as she acquired her Washington Realtor’s license, she made it her goal to pay it forward and show that same warm welcome to other relocators.
Although Nicolette had worked in client services for eight years previous, and four years as an Alaska Realtor, she was surprised by how different the process is from the standpoint of a home buyer. “They say doctors are the worst patients, and the same can be true for Realtors becoming the worst clients.” Nicolette recalls how pushy and anxious she was about selecting her new home because of the size of the financial investment involved. As a result, she has her a unique view of the emotional stress that her clients undergo. Her own experience gave her a newfound appreciation for the demands of each real estate transaction and an understanding for how each real estate transaction is actually a life-changing event.
As a Spokane Realtor, Nicolette works tirelessly to make sure her clients never have to feel the same way as she did, whether they’re relocating to Spokane or simply upgrading to a better fit in the area.
This is why Nicolette Samash was drawn to Haven Real Estate Group, which offers unmatched resources and services to every client. Nicolette prides herself on serving her clients to the best of their needs while building a truly personal relationship with them. Clients in the midst of their stressful real estate journey can enjoy peace of mind knowing their Spokane Realtor sees them as more than just a sale — She sees them as real people seeking the home of their dreams.

Before becoming a Spokane realtor, Patrick Froese spent years learning about how much Spokane has to offer its residents. Patrick was born and raised in the city and has been to the state parks and lakes that offer great getaway opportunities to adventurous citizens. He also knows that Spokane is a large city that can be very comfortable and hospitable at the same time. He wants to offer that small-town charm to his customers by treating them like locals as he guides them through the home buying process.
Patrick Froese did not start out professional life as a Spokane Realtor. In fact, his background is wildly different. The brilliant agent worked within the aerospace industry for 22 years at companies that include USAF, NASA, Rolls Royce, and Pratt & Whitney. His time in this industry taught him how to be a quick pragmatic problem solver. It also taught him flexibility and dedication. His clients see these qualities firsthand when they work with Patrick, because he is tenacious and will go out of his way to get the perfect house at the perfect price for every family.
One of the reasons Froese chose to become a Patrick Realtor is because of an outstanding experience he had when purchasing his first home. His agent was a close family friend who helpfully guided him through the process of buying his fist home, alleviating his concerns and making his dream home possible. He admired her resolve and helpfulness and offers his clients the exact same experience.
Patrick is well aware that choosing the right Spokane Realtor plays a large role in the type of home buying experience a person will have, and he takes his job at the Haven Real Estate Group seriously. He has taken advantage of the growth coaching and training offered by the group to hone his skills and create client/agent relationships that feel more like friendships than business relationships. Patrick doesn’t want to just find his clients a home, he wants to help them assimilate to Spokane and find their dream home.
When Patrick is not busy scouting the real estate market for potential homes, he is out riding his motorcycle or building modified muscle cars. He also enjoys dirt bikes and camping, so he is a great source of information for clients that want to know more about the Spokane area.
Spokane Realtor® Patrick Martinez comes to us from 8 years in the Fashion Industry in Los Angeles, recently relocating to Spokane to enjoy the area’s close proximity to nature and outdoor activities and to be closer to his wife’s family.
Most recently Patrick has been with Nordstrom where he was in management. In this time Patrick has learned the value of creating life-long relationships. “My priority is to have relationship built on trust with my clients. Home Buying, especially your first time, is probably one of the scariest things you will ever do in your life. How much easier would it be having someone you trust guide you through that process? I want to be that guide for all of my clients.”
He also has experience of renovating run-down houses and turning them into modern dream homes. Whether you are looking for a turn-key home or for a project, Patrick’s experience with design and re-imagining spaces will be a valuable tool in helping you look for your dream home.
“Architecture and design has always been a huge passion of mine, I am thrilled that I have the ability to share that passion with others while helping them look for a home of their dreams.”

He has sold many homes on the great lakes in the far north, including in areas such as Kettle Falls on the Colombian, smaller properties along Davis Lake, Waits Lake, Reflection Lake, and many others.
Robert’s appreciation for real estate began when he was a young child. Throughout his childhood, he and his family would move from one area to the next as his father served in the United States Navy. His father, a 32-year veteran of the Navy, taught him at a young age that there is real value in owning a home, noting that if he was making a payment, it should go towards ownership, not renting. By the time he was 18, Robert had purchased his first home. From that time forward, he knew real estate was his passion. It was a natural career path for him, with his history and drive.
Today, Robert continues to thrive in that field. He works with most types of buyers and specializes in helping first-time home buyers, those looking for dream homes, and those who are seeking out the ideal place for their current needs. Pulling from his real estate investing experience, he guides home buyers and sellers through the process with ease and dedication.
Robert has run a successful ad agency for the last 12 years. He works as a Broker to help clients to not only list their home for sale, but to sell at the best possible rate and within the fastest turnaround time as well. As a listing agent, he is committed to helping sellers to achieve their financial goals. He works closely with each client to create a complete marketing plan.
Robert is available to work with individuals looking to buy or sell their home within the region.

The importance of goal-setting is at the core of her beliefs.

She aims to have an inspiring career that allows her to share in the excitement of these exciting moments with people who are ready to take the step towards home-ownership.

Spokane Realtor®Sydne Wheeler, became a real estate agent as a result of her passion for bringing extraordinary service to her clients.
A Career of Extraordinary Service
During Sydne’s time at Nordstrom she was trained by one of the best customer-focused institutions. They believe that the customer is a special guest in their stores and Nordstrom’s empowers their sales associates to do deliver exceptional service to their guests.
Sydne became interested in applying the skills she learned at Nordstrom’s to a career in real estate after several failed attempts to sell her home with numerous Realtors. “I quickly grew tired of agents coming out, tooting their own horns about how good they were, how they’d take such good care of me then allowing me to list our home for a price too high, that wouldn’t garner attention or an offer and then disappearing. I called it the ‘list it and leave it’ syndrome.”
After hearing several friends complain about similar poor experiences with Realtors, Sydne decided to find an agent that was different and espoused service oriented values she’d learned at Nordstrom’s. She found a group of agents at Haven Real Estate Group in Spokane that she would choose to work with if selling her home and that she felt she could refer friends and family to with certainty that they would have and exceptional experience.
In fact, she was so impressed with her interactions with Robert and Cambria (Owners of Haven Real Estate Group), that she decided to join their company.
Sydne believes that her clients rely on her for three things when buying or selling a home:
1) Accurate Information – Being knowledgeable about Spokane housing market means Sydne finds properties for her Buyers BEFORE those properties make it to the major real estate search sites. Often a new listing can take days before it is visible on major real estate search sites;
2) Clients First – Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most will make in their lifetime. Sydne understands that every client is different and she is available throughout the process to address questions and concerns; and,
3) Enthusiasm – Sydne is passionate about helping people. For Sydne, real estate is more just a full time career, rather it is a life devoted to bringing people “home”.
“I strive to be the agent that listens to what you’re saying and fulfills needs you didn’t know you had. I don’t just want to be your agent once, I want to be the agent you call for life – the agent you refer to your friends and family, the agent you come to for advice on vacation or investment properties.”
I grew up in a small rural community in the North Eastern corner of Washington and moved to Spokane 25 yrs ago for better opportunities.
Real estate has always been a dream of mine after my children got a little older but while I was raising four small children I decided go to school to be a Hair stylist. This gave me not only the opportunity to make my own schedule so I could be there for my family but to also gave me a job that was rewarding working with clients, listening to their want’s and needs to accomplishing what we wanted together through good communication. I believed these are some similar skills it takes to be a good Real Estate agent and decided to pursue the career I have always hoped to have and obtained my Realtor’s license.
After attending a class at Spokane Haven I was impressed by the passion, support and education that Spokane Haven has to offer and it led me to want to be a part of their company. On my free time I enjoy camping, fly fishing, Skiing and golfing. I commit my self to helping my clients find the perfect home that will fit their needs and make the home buying and selling experience one they will enjoy. I have integrity and honesty and will work diligently to keep my clients aware of what is going on in the market, through out their transactions and always respond quickly to my clients needs.
Spokane Realtor Trevor Roberson Born in West Plains Missouri with expertise in adaptability, planning, and time management. Served 7 years in USAF traveled most of my career home and abroad. I was stationed at Fairchild AFB, in Spokane 2009. I immediately wanted to make Spokane my home because of the great opportunities and wonderful people the city had to offer. During my career in the military I was fortunate to have courses and training that focused on professionalism, leadership, and formal interactions with a variety of personnel.
Honesty and communication is the foundation of my career and has been part of every aspect in my life during and after enlistment. I understand the importance of trust and the correlation it has with every healthy relationship. My ultimate goal is to help individuals pursue their ambitions of claiming a sanctuary they are proud to call home.
I was motivated to undertake a career in real estate because I get to continue my goal of helping people and shift my disciplined work ethic and military background into a helpful interaction for every prospect of realty.
