I can’t tell you how many times I am asked this question. I think many people in our industry think that I have nothing better to do, or I am independently wealthy, and a myriad of other reasons, none of which are true.
- Being a REALTOR brings me a sense of pride as I meet others in my profession.
- I network and find other professionals that conduct business the way I do.
- I learn a tremendous amount from each one I meet.
- I receive referrals and give referrals.
These are just some of the reasons I am involved. My local Association, MIAMI, continually educates me to the new aspects of the business, helps me to stay in business with continual education and if they are not offering a course that I need, they will find a way to get me that education. My State Association keeps me up to date with various legislative activities, and statistics from around the state and country.
All in all it is a win-win situation and I am the one that comes out ahead. So my fellow REALTORS, those of you involved, you understand what I am preaching, and those of you not involved…..you might want to seriously think about it, it can only be a positive experience for you and your business.
Until next Monday…
