Increased exposure to many other people and businesses.
Q: Can anyone join RBN?
A: We only take one person per professional specialty. So if you are a residential real estate person and we already have one. Of course, if you are a commercial real estate person, you could be eligible to join the group.
Q: How do you know new members are reputable?
A: The application asks for references and we have a membership committee that checks them. It’s word of mouth, so before they even come to a meeting they have to have spoken to someone or been invited by someone in the group.
Q: What if a member gets a referral and does poor work?
A: We have an ethics committee and it is imperative that anyone who gives a lead and finds out it was not satisfactorily handled must report that to the membership committee, who will investigate.
Q: What occupations benefit the most from networking?
A: It is not the occupation, it is the individual. The occupation can be anything. If you’re focused and you have a dream and you’re willing to make a sacrifice, you are the person we want in the group.
Q: Are members supposed to bring visitors?
A: You’re encouraged to bring visitors for those occupations that are open, after the visitor has been prescreened, if they’re a viable candidate. It’s pretty much a closed meeting except for potential members.
There are one year participation options. See the Secretary/Treasurer will have the prices for you on your visit. If you apply to participate in RBN, your application will be reviewed by the Membership Committee, and you will be notified of the status before the next meeting.
