Sphere of influence results for me

Real Estate Agent with Prudential New Jersey Properties
After using the 7 tips to Motivate my sphere of influence I can say that it has made the phone ring more and people I have not been in contact with have started emailing and staying in touch with me. We all know that it is the constant contact that will keep you in the mind of those in your sphere of influence. Our sphere is where we get many of our referrals. People like to refer people they know to people they know. I like to network in places like Active Rain because it gives me an opportunity to meet professionals like you that I become familiar with and feel comfortble referring to my friends, family, customers and clients to. So introduce yourself you never know I may have a referral down the line for you.

Hi, Laura!  I'm a huge believer in focus on my center of influence.  So where do I find the 7 tips you mentioned?

Hi Laura - I'm under "motivation" mode myself. I'm glad to hear yours is working.  Started writing a business plan last night and need to reach out and touch 10 people each day!  Your my fourth!   My weakest link in real estate is agressive prospecting and I'm taking an axe to that link - it's broken!  I'm taking it a step beyind my sphere!  A step beyond my comfort zone! 

Vernon seems like a wonderful place - I think I attended a wedding near there about 10 years ago!  I work mostly in eastern PA - meeting a lot of people moving from NJ.  I do have my NJ license but only do the very western part (Phillipsburg/Flemington/Frenchtown loop).

Hi Laura,

When we founded Capital City Investments, at least 50% of the start-up business came from our sphere of influence.  Wonderfully, the next year saw about 40% of the business coming from the "other" 50% of business developed in the first year -- creating a "new" expanded sphere of influenceI wasn't actually taught this, but it's extremely beneficial to see "fresh" business as expanding one's sphere of influence exponentially.  In the end it simply means more folks with whom to keep in contact, and a greater potential for referrals to the "other" sphere of influence: professional real estate colleagues!

Hi Judy,

Vernon is very beautiful.  The mountains and open space are just great. It is nice to hear the snow guns at night when you are going to sleep.

Having a sphere of influence is nice and necessary when opening a business. When I go to personal social events I do some light networking because you never  know who you may run into. I am the type of person that cannot stop thinking about networking.

It is my life!
