Relationships

By
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 recommendations 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.

Jane, I agree with you. Nobody else would want you to be successful than your friends and family.

Yes, I've found the best advertising is free!! The word-of-mouth referrals from happy clients prove to be the best!!

I also agree.  My business hit a roadblock when the mortgage businesses I provided service to either stopped doing business altogether or so drastically altered their operations that my services were no longer needed.  Thankfully, the individuals I'd met in those businesses have begun calling me from their new workplaces and things are picking up.  The relationships you create and then work to maintain are the ones that are most satisfying AND offer the best return on investment.
