- Attending a good real estate networking event could very easily increase your potential as an entrepreneur in the housing industry.
- On average, real estate professionals receive 18% of their business through referrals.
- It’s true what they say: real estate really is a people business. Who you align yourself with can make or break your company.
Real estate business networking events are growing in popularity, and for good reason: the people you align yourself with on a daily basis are, far and away, one of the most valuable assets today’s investors have at their disposal. After all, a unique convergence of talent can award savvy investors the opportunity to find more deals, glean important information, lock down capital and a myriad of other things. And what makes an investor great, if not for their ability to capitalize on the opportunities they are presented with?
It stands to reason that the investors best suited to succeed are those that give themselves the most opportunities. And, as it turns out, those investors awarded the most opportunities are the ones that have mastered the art of real estate business networking. Nothing, at least as far as I am aware, offers investors more opportunities than real estate business networking.
It’s worth noting, however, that real estate business networking isn’t inherently present in everyone. Of course, there are those that are naturally good at it, but there are those without a clue of how to proceed. Fortunately, like any other skill, networking can be honed over time and developed — so much so that you can go from a complete amateur to a professional in a relatively short period of time if you try hard enough.
