Our Impact

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Shelby Osborne and Pillars Consulting. I’ve been an active agent in Texas for the past 3.5 years; however, I took a brief 7 month hiatus to work for one of the top builders here in Houston. During that time as new parent I truly grew to miss the flexibility of being a real estate agent. Not to mention that as a builder sales representative to avoid future conflicts of interest I had to put my real estate flipping business on hold. Finally, I knew the highest and best use of my experience and knowledge was to serve the needs of the public by representing their best interest as a real estate agent.

If I were to get back into real estate as an agent I knew that I needed to implement better systems, hire an assistant and recruit the industry’s best and brightest agents.

All of which are possible but improbable without the right coach. Lo and behold I met the right coach and her name is Shelby, due to her well thought-out and meticulous training program the Harden Real Estate has grown leaps and bounds just within the past 4 months.

From taking one or two listings per year to taking 1-2 listings per month as well as flipping a property per month. I’ve also, recently hired an assistant to further help bring my vision to fruition. Pillar’s Consulting even helped me you onboard my assistant seamlessly.

I highly recommend Pillars Consulting; I owe not only my business shift but my mindset shift to Shelby Osborne and Pillars Consulting.”

"As a brand new real estate agent and investor, I struggled early on with trying to systematize and grow my business. I got connected with Shelby on BiggerPockets and was instantly drawn to her team because they specialize in helping real estate investors achieve their goals. I wanted to duplicate that business model in my market and Shelby agreed to take me on as a consulting client. Throughout the past 4 months, it is hard to quantify how big of a positive impact the FPRG team has had on not just my business but my life. They have graciously shared their systems, processes, and procedures for building and growing an investor friendly real estate agent team. They shared best practices, failures, and lessons learned in an effort to help me learn from their vast experiences. They helped me grow my team to our current size of three members with 2 new agents in the onboarding process.

Check out the numbers.. Before starting the consulting/training sessions with Shelby, Megan, Mike, and Dan, I averaged 1 closed transaction and $262,750 in volume per month. Since starting my consulting sessions with FPRG, I have averaged 4 closed transactions and $969,900 in closed volume over the past 4 months. FPRG was instrumental in quadrupling my business and helping me purchase another investment property for myself!

They not only helped me build efficient systems to optimize my time and business but gave me the confidence to wake up and crush each day. I would not be where I am today without the help and constant mentorship from Shelby and her team. They are life coaches that have mastered the real estate industry. Call them to take your life and real estate businesses to the next level."
