My Journey


Hi, I’m KJ Shannon.

Your CRE experience-rich business and mindset coach.

I call myself the experience-rich CRE coach.  I’m probably one of the few CRE coaches who have built their experience and wealth in four different businesses:  commercial real estate, coaching, program development  and strategic planning.  That experience along with positions like Chief Marketing Officer, Executive VP, working in both for-profit and non-profit  arenas and building a counseling practice, is now wrapped up into my online business consulting and coaching offers:           Pro to Powerhouse and The CRE Elite Edge    

I know how challenging not only building a business in commercial real estate can be, but also the mindset that needs to be nurtured to accomplish what you set out to do.   

One thing I noticed early on, when building my own CRE career, was that so many pros in CRE were stressed out and you could easily see the signs of burn out.   I wanted to do my business differently.  I wanted to enjoy educating new prospects regarding the value I brought to them.  I wanted to be sure, I kept time for my family and friends so I could  re-energize.  I wanted to deal-making to continue to be exciting and not a grind.  

I'll never forget the feeling when I had my first exclusive signed with a brand I really wanted to represent.   Or the first six-figure commission I earned.  It’s a feeling I want all my clients to carry throughout their career.  



The Pro to Powerhouse CRE masterclass  was designed to provide CRE professionals with the step-by-step method to create a powerful personal brand and strategy for accelerating your business and career growth.   Your professional days are packed with reports, meetings, analysis, cold-calling, and all the things.  And rarely much time for personal growth.  Especially if you are a boutique CRE firm.  Pro to Powerhouse is your opportunity to change all that! 


The CRE Elite Edge mastermind was designed to provide CRE professionals, who have reached  +six figures, to attain the next level results.  Often, you are your own bottleneck in accelerating to the next level in business and personal growth.  Now you have to completely shift your mindset into full-blown leadership capacity.  This is your own think tank opportunity to focus on your next phase of career or business growth.  Accountability is critical at this level.
