They also provide consulting sessions for parents on dealing with struggling kids in any of the areas mentioned. Individualized plans are created to include personal and collective goals for the mentees and their families, then monitored monthly to ensure progress in the targeted areas of their lives.
Coach Walker also makes himself available to collaborate with other members of his mentees’ support team upon requests. Lastly, they hold social events as opportunities for mentees to apply the skills they are developing.
Mike Walker is an educator turned entrepreneur, who has started his own personal growth program for teens and young adults.
Prior to this venture, he was a teacher/coach/administrator for a private school in the valley that served students with learning differences for 18 years.
It was during that time that he discovered his true passion, which was helping students and families navigate the trials of getting through school and transitioning to the real world.
CROSS Commercial Realty Advisors is a Scottsdale-based real estate firm specializing in commercial tenant and buyer representation. Their business model is unique in that they do not ‘list’ properties – this eliminates the unavoidable and insurmountable conflicts of interest that inevitably occur when one agent, or multiple agents from the same company, attempt(s) to represent both tenant/buyer and landlord/seller in the same transaction.
Their clients include Fortune 100 companies as well as hundreds of small- to mid-sized businesses, professional practices and municipalities seeking to lease or buy property at the lowest overall price and under the most favorable terms and conditions.
Since 1984, Steve Cross has helped over 2700 businesses, healthcare professionals, municipalities and investors solve their commercial real estate problems. In addition, he has authored dozens of articles covering many aspects of leasing and buying commercial real estate, many of which are available on his website (www.CrossReaty.com).
He has leased space for his own business and owns income-producing commercial property, which he manages. Because he has taken every step his clients are contemplating, and done so with his own money, Steve’s perspectives are closely aligned with the values and objectives of his clients seeking to minimize occupancy costs.
Steve attended Northern Arizona University on an athletic scholarship (cross country and track (800, mile run)) where he earned a BS in Accountancy, served as president of Babbitt Hall and was inducted into the NAU Athletic Hall of Fame.
Professionally, he has earned the CCIM designation, certifying him as an expert in commercial and investment real estate, is retained as an expert witness, and is a long time member of the Professional Standards Committee of the Arizona Association of Realtors. In his free time Steve enjoys country-western dancing, competitive sports, reading, writing and tackling home improvement projects.
