Always Aspire. For Greg Herder, it’s a lifelong mantra that inspires great things.
The morning sun breaks through the clouds and glints off the shimmering waters of the Pacific Ocean. Greg Herder and his wife, Janet, take a break from their early morning bicycle ride and take in the majestic sight. The moment is perfect. The smell of fresh bread from a nearby bakery, the brisk salty air, the cry of seagulls flying overhead, the sound of the waves crashing against the pier — these all come together to create a moment that truly reminds Greg why he has aspired toward (and worked hard to achieve) the good life. To him, moments like these such as spending time with Janet and their family of three grown sons and four grandchildren, are the reward of his hard work and life’s journey.
Greg has always aspired for more, starting from his youth in rural Wyoming. His family lived in a remote farming area with few signs of civilization around. Though he now values the work ethic and strong personal values instilled from his rural childhood, at that time he dreamed of exploring the world. The first opportunity came when his parents volunteered as missionaries in South Africa. They spent three years striving to make a positive difference in the community despite the country’s apartheid system. After high school, Greg enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he spent four years learning the value of discipline and serving as a computer technician with fighter jet navigation and communications systems. “Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with technology!” he says.
Greg’s service as a Marine is also what led him to the sunny shores of Orange County when he was stationed at El Toro MCAS. He was inspired by the beautiful coastal setting of Huntington Beach and has felt blessed to live in this community ever since. Through all his early experiences in life, what drove Greg most was the desire to seek any opportunity to pursue positive growth and personal knowledge — to aspire for more out of life.
While completing his military service, Greg earned his real estate license and started helping buyers and sellers in Orange County. He quickly built a reputation for innovative marketing. Because of his success as a salesperson, he decided to open a brokerage business in 1980; with the collapse of the real estate market in 1981, Greg got a crash course in the complexities of running a brokerage in turbulent times. He decided it was a good time to rethink his career path. What he had always aspired most toward was sharing his knowledge with people and helping them achieve more in life. Greg spent two years working under the guidance of acclaimed motivational speaker and writer, Jim Rohn. “He changed my whole way of thinking and inspired me to focus on living a life of service to others,” Greg says.
Drawing on his cutting-edge ideas as an agent and his marketing and advertising based education, Greg opened his own real estate marketing and training company, Hobbs/Herder Advertising. He has become one of the most recognized speakers in the industry. Over the years, he’s helped tens of thousands of agents throughout North America to achieve their business goals through innovative marketing strategies, online networking and utilization of the latest technological resources. Greg did miss working one-on-one with home buyers and sellers, though, which led him to open MegaAgent Realty and once again help families by sharing his vast knowledge as a real estate salesperson, trainer and businessman.
