Representative of the classic American rags to riches story, Brian Buffini has made it his life’s work to share that same possibility with others. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, and immigrating to San Diego, Calif., in 1986, he founded Buffini & Company after building a top-producing career as a REALTOR®.
Based in Carlsbad, Calif., Buffini & Company has trained more than 3 million business professionals in 37 countries. The company currently serves more than 21,000 members and trains more than 60,000 a year through live events and training programs. In addition, Buffini’s podcast, The Brian Buffini Show, has reached 4 million-plus downloads in more than 160 countries. In 2017, Buffini also became a New York Times, Amazon and Wall Street Journal best-seller with his latest book, “The Emigrant Edge.”
According to Buffini, his greatest accomplishment this past year has been helping the firm’s clients build great businesses and lead fulfilled lives. “We have more than 200 team members at Buffini & Company focused on one single thing every day – our clients’ success,” he says. “In 2018, our clients achieved record earnings, an average of $358,486 for members in our One2One Coaching program. This is in sharp contrast to the average industry salary, which has fallen 7 percent to less than $30,000. With the real estate industry more confused and distracted than ever before, our goal is to keep our clients focused on building relationships, standing out with excellent service and mastering their fundamental skills.”
