The real estate market is booming and you are going a mile a minute with customers and clients. Then why am I seeing so many members at the abounding real estate events across the state?
We, as staff working for Realtors®, attend many local and statewide events to promote Realtor® value and benefits. Just in the past two weeks, we have participated in an event at a local Realtor® association, a company’s continuing education event and a business rally presented by the local chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals. Earlier in the year we participated in a large company conference and another local association event and have scheduled to join at least three more local association events.
And we saw and will see so many of you there! You are busy as can be but still want to attend the variety of real estate related events going on around you. But I can answer the question why – because you see the value in networking and learning from experts and each other.
Real estate is a profession of relationships, we all know the importance of relationships with your clients and customers, your community and your fellow Realtors®. Without success in relationships there is little success in business. So the best way to foster the relationships with each other, form your referral base and learn about the benefits of being a Realtor® is to attend Realtor® events.
Education is Key
Last week at the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professional’s Business Rally, a Q & A took place with a local top producer. When asked what advice she had for fellow agents regarding success, she replayed with a simple, confident answer: Education.
Luckily you have many networking and education events to choose from and I encourage you to check with your local association and MAR for upcoming events. Many local associations host one day conferences, networking events and more. And when applicable, MAR attends local events as I’ve described above so that you can firsthand see the value and benefits the local, state and national Realtor® associations have to help you in your profession. MAR also hosts an annual conference and our Young Professionals Network hosts at least one or two regional networking events a year.
The MAR events calendar has many event listings and so does your local association’s website. I know many of you are finding the local and state events because we see you there, so keep looking and keep busy so you can keep growing your business.
