In 1997, Chad left his native Minnesota for Austin, Texas. The next year, he pursued his real estate license and began selling homes. Early in his real estate career, Chad was introduced to the team concept and realized its benefits.
In his first full year in real estate, Chad sold 67 homes, breaking barriers he never thought possible. He went from making $2.17 an hour as a bartender to consistently earning $20,000 a month. And that was just the beginning…Chad began building a team, setting higher goals and creating plans that allowed him to achieve those goals. He kept setting his sights higher and within seven years became the number one Realtor in Austin, Texas.
At the age of 31, he moved his team from ReMax to Keller Williams. He set a goal to break $100 million in real estate sales. Within two years, Goldwasser walked across the stage at the Keller Williams national awards event as the top agent worldwide for Keller Williams Realty with 543 sales and $123 million in sales volume.
In November 2008, Goldwasser left Keller Williams and formed his own independent brokerage, Goldwasser Real Estate. That year the company grew from 30 agents to more than 70 agents. What happened next nearly destroyed him, his dreams and the company. (To learn more about these challenges and how he overcame them, come to one of Chad’s live talks!)
In December 2013, Chad founded Pure Gold Realty. Chad's philosophy has always been to "serve people at the highest level and be the best in the world at what you do and you will succeed." Pure Gold Realty delivers world-class service to its clients and team members by offering systems that deliver consistent, proven and repeatable results. That result is the highest price and best representation for their clients and an outstanding environment for agents to excel.
Chad first learned about serving others while working in the restaurant business. Today, Chad’s life exemplifies the company’s core values of service, people, leadership, teamwork, self-improvement, competence, performance, creativity, innovation, and a dedication to a great reputation and raising the bar of excellence.
Chad remains active in the real estate division while working to develop other aspects of the company, mainly his motivational speaking career. Chad’s teaching and training business is designed to educate and inspire others to follow their own dreams and realize their own potential, just as he has. Chad is recognized as a dynamic, experienced, and sought-after public speaker who motivates and enriches lives through his talks about attitude, leadership, and personal growth. His first book, Some Assembly Required: A Networking Guide for Real Estate Professionals (with Thom Singer) was published in 2009.
In 2007, Chad co-founded Right Course, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping single-parent families pay the costs for their children to participate in organized sports through the help of public, private and corporate donations and grants.
Chad has devoted his life to leadership, teaching, training, and speaking, and has attended numerous classes and courses on the subject including four years of the prestigious Exchange hosted by John Maxwell.
Despite his busy professional schedule, Chad makes a point to spend time with his three young children.
