Why Should I Join?

Simply put, there is nothing like setting up your VP’s for success. Teeing them up and assisting in the growth of their business…but don’t let us tell you that, let these testimonials speak for themselves.

 

“I’m enjoying getting acclimated with the biz development program. Thus far my BDS, Arthur, has gotten me some new realtor connections. HE has also been helping me with a marketing campaign that I have been wanting to do for a while. HE has done a ton of research, putting an event together and helping me work on doing a billboard campaign. I enjoy working with Arthur. He is diligent, excited for my success and has a great disposition. Thank you, Jen, for this opportunity.” – Shimmy Braun, IL

 

“I have found the Business Development Program to be immensely valuable. I have started breaking into some new markets and my business development specialist Sean has been incredible at helping me put a plan together for penetrating these new markets. Not only is he great at calling realtors and getting coffee appointments set up with them, he’s also been instrumental in helping me institute a strategy for following and keeping me top of mind with these agents. It’s great to get a meeting with a realtor but if you don’t continue to follow with them they will forget all about you. Sean has helped me immensely with staying disciplined and consistent with keeping my name at the front of their minds. I cannot say enough good things about how impressed I am with Sean and the Biz Dev platform as a whole.” – Drew Boland, CO

 

“You know what I think is the most important in business development: attention and detail and coming up with new ideas. Sean does that, and then we implement them together. He never misses a trick, because he knows that if we do, the relationship with the realtor is over. Great job Sean!” – Mike Nielsen, IL
