The Michael Group - Dallas Business Journal Top Ranked Realtors
I am leary of any "networking" groups where you have to pay to join. Instead, take a page from financial advisors, who are in a similar situation as us. I work with a couple, educating clients about the buying & selling process. You will find being a successful agent means a sucessful networking system. Finds what works for you.
Success breeds success. Every deal you ever complete has at least 3 sources for referrals. Your client is the most valuable source because they know what great service they just received. Their Lender (if it was a buyer) because your client will brag about what a great job you did for them and tell their lender how well they were treated. You will also ask for referrals from their Loan Officer every chance you get. And...wait for it...the other party in the transaction. Once the transaction is closed, you should be thanking the other party involved for their participation. If you represented a buyer who really got a good deal through your skillful negotiations, you run the risk of leaving a really bad taste in the seller's mouth. All of that goes away with a simple thank you note and an offer to help their friends and family because they know how skillful you are.
All of this is totally dependent on your ability to negotiate great deals.
