R.E.A.L. Coach stands for Real Estate Assets and Liabilities Coach-a coach who uses a comprehensive approach in helping clients reach their real estate and financial goals. With real estate typically being a client’s largest asset, and a mortgage the largest liability, a R.E.A.L. Coach recognizes the long-term impact that decisions affecting real estate and mortgages have on retirement goals, either shortening or extending the length of time needed to achieve our eventual retirement dreams. Thus, R.E.A.L. Coach is synonymous with R.E.A.L. Retirement Coach. A R.E.A.L. Coach helps evaluate where you are in the Real Estate Life Span and prepares a comprehensive R.E.A.L. Plan that documents your current position and then compares this to your future goals, and prepares a gap analysis with attendant recommendations.
