I know for myself, business relationships are very important. If I stopped & thought everytime “how will this person help me in return” to every person I come in contact with, then I really wouldn’t be where I am now. God put us here on Earth to be a special part in His plan & to help eachother out. Establishing relationships is a part of life whether it’s business or personal. When I show my appreciation to my colleagues, I’m happy to buy gifts\certificates, dinners, flowers, spa packages, etc. When I didn’t have the money, inviting everyone over for a home cooked meal always did the trick! It’s a great way to introduce brokers, investors, bankers, & contractors together. Everyone eats & enjoys! Networking is a powerful tool … Happy House Hunting!
