It is my personal goal for ALL of us to GET BUSINESS from this NETWORK this year.  Please remember those within this NETWORK when referring business out.  WE ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!!

Referrals go 4 ways:

  1. Realtor to Realtor - we are not your competitors, we are your partners.
  2. Realtor to Strategic Partner - We need your services Strategic Partners!!
  3. Strategic Partner to Realtor - you all know people looking to buy or sell real estate.
  4. Strategic Partner to Strategic Partner - use each other in your business.


The Theme for 2017 is simply...YOU MATTER

  • You Matter to our membership. Without YOU we have no network.
  • You Matter for referrals. WE ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS, we should be referring each other first.
  • You Matter with your sponsorships, we love to recognize YOU
  • You Matter with your participation. YOU will get more out of your membership and other members will get the know YOU.
  • You Matter by making a difference. We want to hear your ideas and get your input. We are listening, we hear you
  • Most of all YOU MATTER to YOUR business.  Let’s GROW our businesses TOGETHER in 2017

Your line officers, committee chairs and committee members want to help you fulfill your 2017 expectations and goals.  We are here to serve you!   If you have ideas, concerns or questions, please feel free to contact me or one of your line officers.  Our contact information is listed on the website.  Use us!

Our focus in 2017 will be on:

  • Networking and using those that are a part of this network as our number one referral source. We are the best in the business. We are professionals and we should all be referring each other.
  • There will be some changes to our luncheons and events to keep the network fresh and fun.  We will have 3 pure networking luncheons.
  • Education is always at the top of our focus list.   You will see some dynamic speakers this year to help you grow your business. 
  • Bringing in more REALTOR members.  If you know a realtor that is not part of this Network, please invite them in.  They (and you) will benefit greatly by being a part of our group.

Some of the changes that we will begin to implement in 2017 to take place in 2018 include:

We will refer to ourselves as a NETWORK, no longer a CHAPTER. It is a better place to CONNECT and do business TOGETHER

We will refer to our Local Affiliates as our STRATEGIC PARTNERS no longer local affiliate members. Nothing changes in 2017 as far as the membership goes. However, at the end of 2017 there will be new tiered partner levels for the year 2018. These levels will give you a choice for an opportunity for better exposure to get in front of the group, and to grow partnerships with other members and more REALTOR members.  We will put together a focus group this year of stragic partners to help us define these levels.   This is so you will have input and buy into these important changes.   If you would like to be a part of this focus group please let us know.

Smaller Governance will begin in 2018. You will see a smaller board and PROJECT TEAMS so you can get involved without giving a year long commitment. We will begin the Project teams this year with our fundraising events.

Bear with us through this year of change. It will be fun and most likely be a little challenging.   We are up for the task and will strive to make it great.  Suggustions along the way are always welcome.
