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.

“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.

As a buyers agent my job is to help to guide them through a process to allow them the most favorable experience possible and make them thrilled to spend time in the home we assist them in buying. When it comes time to list their home it is important to recognize that this has been their home, and there are memories that come with the time spent in the home. While this is a financial transaction, both as a buyer and a seller, it is also an emotional transaction. I feel so honored each time people chose me to help them during this process.”

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.

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.”
Spokane Realtor® Shelby Tidd grew up a native of Spokane has a deep seated love of the ever evolving and developing Spokane area. Her passion for real estate developed at a young age and this coupled with her love for people makes for the perfect agent to work with.
Shelby’s passion stems from her experience with high level customer service at Nordstrom and relationships she built there became the springboard for her to be able to follow her dream of people finding theirs.
As a mother Shelby understands the importance of not just having a house but a home. “My primary goal is to truly get to know each individual client and get a clear picture of exactly what they are looking for”, says Shelby.
Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments anyone will make and Shelby is devoted to helping each of her clients make the best choice. Shelby gives her clients more than just a real estate experience – she brings her high energy, competitive and fun loving personality to every interaction and this flows over into every aspect of the realty process.
Whether you are buying, or selling your home, know that Shelby, as a part of a team of the best realtors in Spokane, is devoted fully to providing the highest level of professionalism and work ethic.
“Just because a property transaction closes, that doesn’t mean my relationship with the client closes. My goal is to build lifelong relationships.”
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.
I have called the Real Estate industry a home for the better part of the last three years. The main thing I usually get asked is how I got into the business. I always try to not come up with the “usual” answers that I love helping people and seeing the smiles and excitement when I help them find their dream home or sell their current one for the most amount of money. But that’s not easy because ultimately that’s what it always comes back to. To me real estate is ultimately about people first, then the actual property. I try to approach every transaction from a client-point-of-view standpoint so that I can make the process as smooth and flawless as possible because I know how frustrating it can be at times. My promise to you is that I will always stay in touch and inform you of important developments so that you are always armed with the most relevant information to make the important decisions.
Because I am so passionate about Real Estate, I also love continuously learning new things that relate to and impact our industry. In my prior career in corporate finance, I crunched and analyzed numbers, so I am now incorporating this geekiness in my real estate business. There aren’t a lot of numbers or stats that I don’t know or can come up with if you need that kind of info. I also keep up with local, regional, and national industry trends through publications and other research. That allows me to provide my clients valuable, relevant information on a broad scale. I am well educated on a broad range of economic, political, regional and local topics, which helps my buyers and sellers make more informed decisions.
In my spare time I love playing with my little boy Dominic, reading, playing basketball and soccer, and enjoying a multitude of outdoor activities that the majestic Inland Northwest has to offer. My favorite season is Winter and I absolutely love getting up to the snow and “tearing up” the slopes on my snowboard. I’m looking forward to introducing Dominic to winter sports this season.
My wife Sandy and I are also huge animal lovers and currently live with our three little Chihuahuas – Milo, Sadie, and Fiona. Our dream is to one day own a big piece of land where we could take care of mistreated and neglected dogs and rehabilitate them so they can find a new home.
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.”

Spokane Realtor®, Morgan Bishop, is a seasoned broker with over 11 years of experience. In his previous career as the sales manager of an RV dealership, Morgan honed his customer service and leadership skills. After purchasing his first home in 2001, he discovered that he absolutely loved house hunting. This newfound love for real estate combined with his passion for helping people led to getting his real estate license in 2005. Shortly after getting licensed, Morgan became a certified first time home buyer’s instructor for the Washington State Housing Finance Commission. Since then he has helped dozens of first time buyers realize their dreams of owning their own home.

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.

Ever since Spokane Realtor Travis Stark overheard an old family friend discussing the business of real estate, Travis was intrigued.
“Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions people make and it can also be one of the most emotional… The purchase can have long lasting ramifications in terms of where a person buys, the timing of the purchase, etc. Having an agent that understands those ramifications and diligently works to ensure their client is making the best decisions is invaluable”, says Travis.
Travis made the choice to partner with Haven Real Estate due to the firm’s focus on doing the right thing for clients, agent training, motivation and support. “I was really drawn to both the professionalism of the office and the family environment – I really feel like I am a part of a cohesive team”.
When Travis takes a break from his passion, real estate, he also enjoys basketball and running to keep his body and mind sharp.
