networking and building business relationships: Real Life People! Fun Biz Net Mixers! - 10/05/17 05:34 PM
 
Today while going through some photos for Dick Greenberg  Photo Contest I ran across fun photos of a Mix N Mingle mixer (which clearly had a St Paddy's Day theme going on)! What I noticed is that everyone in the photo is smiling and laughing.  We had so much fun hosting these business events once a month at our home for 5 years or so. 
 
Going through photos sure brought back lots of good memories.  We typically had between 40 and 60 people each month. And now I look back and think  - that was a lot of work putting them on … (19 comments)

networking and building business relationships: Are you missing out on a HUGE Networking Opportunity? - 09/14/17 05:05 PM
 
Networking has been an important part of my business model from my first years in the real estate business.  I was fortunate to have a broker/mentor show me the ropes and get me involved (whether I wanted to or not). He also pretty much made me (or so it seemed at the time) to join committees as well as volunteer to be an ambassador or whatever else they needed. I've belonged to a couple of Chambers and other network groups and have also have created successful network groups. It's no surprise that networking at this point is 'fun' to me. I couldn't say … (45 comments)

networking and building business relationships: Phoenix ActiveRain/CRS Meetup a Great Success! - 09/13/17 02:17 PM
 
Phoenix ActiveRain/CRS Meetup a FUN Success!
 
How can you tell if a meetup is a success?  That's easy!  All it takes is 2 people getting together and having a great conversation.   In this case we had about 30+ people in attendance and it was non-stop talking and laughing for 2+ hours.  Now that's what I call a successful & fun meetup!
 
 
We had ActiveRainers, CRS agents (some are both AR & CRS), many local business people and we had 5 Sponsors that gave away awesome door prizes! The meetup was held at the North Mountain Grille in Moon Valley.
 
 
 Thank You To Our Sponsors!!

networking and building business relationships: My Network - Priceless! - 07/14/17 02:08 PM
 
 
There is absolutely no question in my mind how priceless my network is and has been for my entire career in real estate. Fortunately I learned early on the why and how of connecting and building a network from my Father. He was a master network. He could strike up a conversation with anyone, about anything, anywhere in the world. As kids it used to drive us crazy when he strike up a conversations but now we all 'get it'!
 
 
My husband Gary (Mr Banana) and I work closely together with our network and our clients. Gary is the nuts and bolts guy … (30 comments)
