Who is J Marshall Schoonover?

J Marshall Schoonover has done it all! J Marshall has given public speeches and sales training programs in 25 states in the United States. He has shared with his audiences his “results-getting” “thought-provoking” methods for being more productive in the field of selling as well as helping individuals pass both the California broker and salesperson’s test the first time they take it. 

The first job I ever had in my life at age 16, was during the summer working for a landscaping company in Frankenmuth, Michigan. It was a hard way to make a living. 

The second job I ever had in my life was at age 17. I was a teenage drywaller. I started out as a drywall hanger and then graduated up to being a drywall finisher. I eventually started to contract my own jobs. I did this from age 17 to age 25. I found that I was developing a strong back, however a weak mind! I started searching for something to where I could use my mind and my voice to make a living and not just my back. I tried several things to satisfy my goal in those early years when I was in my 20s. 

First I started selling for the Paymaster Corporation in Detroit, Michigan. We sold check protection machines and insurance to merchants to protect them from someone forging their checks and stealing their money. The manager at that time bragged about having sold 7 Paymaster machines in one week, therefore, I sold 12 in my first week. I only stayed with that company for a few weeks. The reason I left them is that in my opinion we were selling check protection machines and check protection insurance to make a profit to small business merchants that really didn’t need check protection!

In 1977 I was invited by a friend that was in real estate to attend a real estate Career Night in Flint, Michigan. The speaker that evening was Floyd Wickman. The goal of the real estate brokers that sponsored the Career Night was to recruit new real estate sales people. As I listen to the speaker, (Floyd Wickman), as he was trying to convince all of us to make real estate our career I came up with a different goal as a result of his performance. I decided that I wanted to do something similar to what he was doing for a living, something to where I could use my mind and my voice to make a living. Shortly afterwards I had a discussion with Floyd regarding my goal. His advice was that I needed to earn the right to do that.

As a result I took Floyd’s pre-license school class’s in Detroit, Michigan and got licensed as a full-time real estate sales person at age 25.

In my early years I established myself as a real estate professional. I quickly became a top producer. I was the top real estate sales agent and listing agent during most of my first 12 months as a licensed real estate agent in my entire state where I resided at that time. I brought in 49 listings in my first six months and 89 listings in my first year in real estate, all in a seller’s market.

I also won a top international award for a listing presentation that I gave at an international convention that was held in New Orleans in my eighth month of being a licensed real estate agent. I was awarded first prize! I received a five-day vacation for two in the Bahamas. I was in competition with more than 850 independent real estate offices located in 19 regions in the United States and Canada at their International convention that was conducted that year in New Orleans.

One year to the day from when I first entered real estate I was offered three different regional training director jobs in three different states in the United States. Over the next five years I was a regional training director and marketing director in ten different states in the United States.

Over the next several years I also managed both residential and commercial real estate offices and worked as a real estate recruiter and trainer in several different states.

In 1988 I started specializing in helping individuals pass their California real estate salesperson or broker state exam the first time they take it without taking one single note! It is a live in-person instruction (not zoom) program! I have been an independent real estate educator for over 35 years, and I have helped thousands of students pass the California real estate salesperson, or broker exam on the first try.
