Importance of Relationships...

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

I had an opportunity today to attend a luncheon that was a networking function that comprised a group of well-educated, entrepreneurial, successful business women.  The one thing I learned was that most successful businesses are built on referrals from family, friends and associates.  It is these folks who we have established relationships with that know who we are, what we want to give to others, how we work, and why we want to do the business that we do.  No only are relationships the key to a successful business, they are also the best teachers in our lives.  Maintain and nurture these precious relationships.

Absolutely true, thanks for posting.   Often I've said to people that real estate really isn't about the property...it is about the people and the relationships we form.   Of course, that's true in any business.  Sometimes we just need a reminder.

Great opportunity to further your personality with others...that's the best form of advertising.

Jane: This is great advice and something we cannot do enough off, nor keep closer to our frontal lobe. Thanks for the refresher!
