Compiling preferred vendors

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Brevard 3275844

  This year I want to have my own vendors on a list to use when needed.  I'm sure most of you have those already, but I don't want just names.  I want a relationship to know the vendor and the client will work well together.  Do you find this being too controling on my part? I feel even though they are just a sugestion from me, I do want to have someone trustworthy, who will show up and do thier level best everytime.

Lynda - I believe it is always a good idea to have vendor partners you can trust and count on to work with you and for you. Even though you won't be able to work with them all the time, it is nice to have someone on your side, and that you can recommend to your clients.

I have just recently started asking my vendors for referrals as well.  Yesterday I received a referral from my electrician.  Although he works with many realtors, he noticed that I am making more of an effort to recommend him with other realtors.  Big win.

These types of relationships should be "mutually" beneficial - there's nothing wrong with expecting that or looking to promote it in your real estate business. The way I look at it with my (real estate) clients is, if this ____ (inspector/electrician/etc) doesn't send you referrals and you send them referrals regularly, find an inspector (electrican etc) who is willing to send you referrals. There's always more out there who are motivated towards mutually beneficial relationships.
