Challenging the Status Quo Since 2009
Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada with clients spread across North America, 7DS Associates is a management consulting firm for the real estate industry. We work with select clients in all sectors of the industry, from Associations to MLSs to Brands, Brokerages and Agent Teams to Technology companies large and small. We work on mission critical, bet-your-company, change the course of the industry projects for some of the largest organizations and institutions in real estate. We just don’t talk about them unless we have to, not even who the clients are, because that is their business, not ours.
That loyalty to our clients is something that sets us apart from other consultants in real estate. We keep their confidences and earn their trust. We don’t work for competitors of our clients, even if that means leaving a fortune on the table. Honor demands it of us.
Accordingly, we are selective as to who we take on, and for what. We do corporate strategy, technology strategy, product development, marketing and communications, training and coaching, corporate finance… like many others. We just do it better, because we do it without fear or favor.
Fearlessness is our culture and hallmark: we ask the tough questions others hesitate to raise, because in tough questions lie the truth. We give advice that we believe is in the client’s best interests, even if it isn’t what they want to hear. We’re less concerned about getting the next assignment and more concerned about delivering value in this one.
We believe it is our duty as consultants, as people who are paid for analysis and advice, to have that courage to ask tough questions, go where others fear to tread, challenge assumptions and the way things have been, and to provide honest advice and guidance to the best of our abilities.
And those abilities are substantial. Our partners have over 15 years of experience in real estate, with additional background in start-ups, Wall Street, law, finance, technology, product development, project management, marketing, customer service, training, coaching, operations, and management. We see patterns that others miss, watch trends before they develop, and because of our fearlessness, get right down to the fundamental issues.
Our solutions are often creative, because we have no vested interest in the status quo and no use for convenient fictions. We care only about what works and what will work for our clients, so they can achieve their goals.
We admit that we are not for everybody, but then, everybody is not for us either. We’re selective with clients and with projects. We routinely turn down assignments if we’re conflicted, if we don’t believe in it, or if someone else can do it better.
But if you are one of those who inspire us, who make us believe, who make us care, and we can help you better than anybody else can… we promise to challenge your way of thinking, make you uncomfortable with business as usual, come up with creative-yet-disciplined solutions rooted in reality rather than wishful thinking, and help you transform your business.
Bring us your thorniest problems. Bring us your biggest visions. Bring us your most fundamental needs. We’ll deliver answers if there are answers to be found, without fear or favor. We owe you that as a matter of duty and honor.
