I'm curious to hear everyone's opinion about the value of joining a social club for real estate networking. Though I live and work here in Austin, I'm a member of the Petroleum Club of Houston www.pcoh.com (I'm happy to talk to anybody about the Petroleum Club, or membership if you're interested). I decided this week to check out the reciprocal club here in Austin, the Austin Club. So on Friday I'm going to lunch, and will see how things are there.
I was browsing their newsletter and saw a list of some new members, it definitely seems like a breeding ground of contacts that may be interested in tenant or buyer representation services. I imagine the same is true for residential brokers.
Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
