Read what people are saying about Summer's real estate compliance consulting services:
"Summer Goralik is an asset to our business, during a time of expansion for our real estate brokerage, from assistance with defining policies to keep us compliant and how it relates to our procedures, as well as auditing our files to ensure compliance with current and changing real estate law. Additionally, she helped us gain a better understanding of the real estate civil and administrative codes in multiple states, how it affects our business and assisted with the setup of best business practices in advertising, daily transactions and responding to complaints. We are truly thankful for her knowledge, ability to dissect the laws, rules, regulations, and guide us in maintaining a DRE compliant office."

"There is so much involved when you own a real estate brokerage - - marketing to find new prospects, managing agents and employees, closing deals and focusing on customer service to ensure that clients are happy. Outside of these critical tasks, there is the thing that is easy to overlook about but is critically important COMPLIANCE. We hired Summer last year to audit our firm to give us piece of mind that our company was managing our business correctly and could withstand a visit from the BRE should one occur. Summer is absolutely fantastic to work with. She came in, examined our files and looked into our entire organization with enough detail to really understand what we were doing right and what we can improve. She gave us suggestions and offered new procedures to not only protect ourselves and ease the pain of a future audit, but also to streamline our compliance processes so we can focus on the core revenue generating aspects of our business. Summer always notifies us when there are new topics in the area of compliance that we should be aware of and we feel much better operating our business knowing that Summer is standing with us should we need her services in the future."

"I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Summer Goralik, who for the past year has performed excellent work for my brokerage. I hired Summer as a consultant to help me get through an audit being conducted on my company by the California Department of Real Estate. She has proven to be extremely hard working, knowledgeable, diligent and committed to her work. Without her help, I sincerely doubt that would have happened. Summer is a very motivated and intelligent person who is not afraid to go above and beyond the scope of her duties. I sincerely believe that she will do the same if given the opportunity with any other organization and I give her my highest recommendation."

Summer Goralik has been my go-to expert for everything relating to California Department of Real Estate requirements and compliance. Her knowledge of the laws and what the DRE is looking for have been invaluable to me throughout the journey of opening and growing my brokerage firm. Summer shows great dedication to her clients, and provides world-class customer service and support. If on the rare occasion she does not know the answer to a question, she is very diligent and resourceful in finding it. She is responsive, professional, and an expert resource/advisor.

I was researching online topics in regards to a compliance issue that I had. I found a very interesting and well spoken article pertaining to my particular topic. I clicked on the authors name and it brought me to Summer’s website. I was so impressed with her credentials that I decided to contact her which was the smartest thing that I did. Right from the start, she had a very warm and engaging personality. She allowed me to explain my issue, listened intently, and asked pointed questions so that she could understand what the level of risk I was under. She guided me through the process and gave me valuable feedback using her experience as an investigator to help me understand how to best navigate my situation. I really do appreciate her valuable insight, and would highly recommend her to any broker/business owner in need of compliance consulting. She is well worth the peace of mind that she can bring you!

Summer was a great help when we received notice of a DRE Survey. Her phone consultation helped us sharpen our processes and prepare for the survey. Summer knew many of the questions that were going to be asked and helped us to pass with no issues found. I would highly recommend her services.

Summer Goralik expertise as a DRE compliance consultant has become a huge asset to myself and my company. Just when you think you have all, well maybe most, of the answers there is an question or issue that comes up and you just need someone to talk it through, get another viewpoint or perhaps prepare a full opinion letter on a matter. Summer is that person for me. Her knowledge base allows her to quickly answer most questions but she is willing to do any research necessary to be sure she gives you the correct information. She is very responsive and her follow up to get you a quick and thorough answer is always appreciated. Summer fills a much needed niche and I am grateful that there is a professional like her available to our industry.

Summer Goralik’s services are a must for any independent brokerage. I highly recommend taking her classes to keep yourself out of trouble. I was the subject of a random DRE Audit (of my escrow division) and did not know where to start. Luckily I remembered Summer from her DRE compliance classes she teaches and reached out to her. Even when you think you’re doing everything right, a DRE audit can be overwhelming – especially when you don’t know what to expect (my first audit after 15 years in the business). Summer knew EVERYTHING. Where to start, what to look for, how the audit would be conducted, what they would be looking for, what questions they would ask, the answers they want to hear, the things they want to see – absolutely EVERYTHING! Beyond knowing everything, Summer is a true professional. She responds right away, worked for me nights and weekends, answers every question quickly, completely, and directly, does not waste time, and charges reasonable rates! If you’re an honest broker trying to make an honest living Summer should be on speed dial. Moving forward she will be reviewing all of our materials – from advertising to escrow instructions and beyond. I cannot praise Summer’s service, candor, and knowledge enough. She is the greatest resource I’ve ever encountered in real estate.
