Sports Psychology News – John F. Murray, Ph.D. – July 1, 2019 – Vince Spadea, former long time sports psychology client of Dr. John F. Murray still owns the longest losing streak in tennis history (21 straight losses in a row), and this is what got him into sports psychology/mental coaching. He worked very hard on his mental game and got a totally new team in order to overcome the losses and make the biggest comeback in tennis history, getting back to #18 in the world and #10 in the Champions Race. Now Spadea is using all the mental skills to full advantage in real estate. “He is breaking sales records now, and I am very proud of what he has done, and the amazing thing is that he credits his mental game as well as his great team of fellow agents at Douglas Elliman agency,” stated Murray.
Vince had not even had his real estate license 6 months when he started hitting the jackpots. He, along with several colleagues in real estate in Palm Beach, have already sold several mansions and Vince is on track for one of the quickest rises in real estate history as a new agent. He just recently helped sell broadway producer Terry Allen Kramer’s estate in Palm Beach for $110 million, shattering the record made by Donald Trump in 2008 with the $95 million dollar sale of Mar a Lago. This is the most expensive single-family home sale in the history of wealthy Palm Beach.
The late Broadway producer, Terry Allen Kramer, who died in May, owned the 13-bedroom compound at 1295 South Ocean Boulevard. It hit the market in October for $135 million, and went under contract in recent weeks.
Vince deserves all the credit for what he has done in business after tennis, but the message that Dr. Murray gives every new client, including Vince back in 2000, and the parents of young athletes, is that when you invest in mental coaching for sport you are also investing in future academic, business, and personal success. The principles of sports psychology help in sales just as much as they do in golf, tennis and show jumping.
Congrats Vince, and keep on selling! You are making your sports psychologist proud!
