Jan O'Brien

Team Leader

I have 34+ years of leadership, real estate brokerage, real estate training, business and coaching experience. I am a Business and Real Estate Broker-Salesperson, Coach, Trainer, Speaker and Team Leader. I am the oldest of five siblings and a graduate of the University of Georgia (#GoDawgs!) I proudly served as a Captain & UH-60 Blackhawk pilot in the U.S. Army from 1984-92.

On Veteran’s Day 2015, I launched Wandering But Not Lost (WBNL) Coaching with my business partner, co-founder and friend Matt Emerson. WBNL Coaching is a real estate coaching and training company providing both customized, one-on-one coaching and on-demand training and virtual coaching for agents, teams and brokers. We specialize in training and coaching for Real Estate Teams with our signature online program – RealEstateTeamBuilder.com.   Matt and I also produce a weekly podcast: Wandering But Not Lost Podcast: Where Real Estate and Reality Meet.

In early 2018, I was inspired to “walk my talk” as a business coach specializing in real estate team building by starting my own team a. All of our team members have access to our training portal (the Wanderers Club) at WBNLCoaching.net. During my 26+ year real estate career, I have served at all levels from sales associate, branch manager, team leader, corporate broker, general manager to franchise development and coaching.

My goal with the Vegas Veterans Home Team is to lead, coach and support a team of veterans, first responders, and family members who have the desire and dedication to build and enjoy a successful real estate career. I am passionate about supporting veterans and first responders! My personal mission is to empower others to discover and live their true passion and purpose.

I hope to meet you soon and assist you on your continued journey of success and self-mastery.
