President of Pro R.E.A. Staffing

Hire LAB Founder

Hi, I’m Vanessa Rosenblum. I am the president and founder of Pro R.E.A. Staffing - the industry’s lead recruiting firm for real estate teams and brokerages. I'll help you hire talented employees so you can get back to doing what you love. 

 

During my fifteen-year career, I have continually sought to answer the question, “What makes a lasting hire, and how can we reduce the chances of making the wrong one?” That question led me to develop the philosophy, framework, systems, and processes that I teach in the Hire LAB course and use in my recruiting practice.

 

It’s my goal to give you the tools you need to design the life you want to lead! Learn more about Pro R.E.A. Staffing...
