3. Prepare your haves & wants or your elevator pitch. This is your chance to have one-on-one conversations with members and let them know exactly what you need from them. Got a property you want to sell? Bring your flyers. Got a product or service that other members need to know about? Bring your details. Be prepared to participate.
4. Stand out. Dress sharp or dress crazy but there will be lots of people at this event and your job is to stand out and make sure people remember you AFTER the event ends.

After an hour of speed networking you will be exhausted and will need to rest your mouth!  Well, you are in luck because we will have 12 - 15 expert tables set up for you to visit! Start planning what topics interest you the most. These tables are hosted by Members and Business Members who are experts in one part of real estate investing and are volunteering to make themselves available to you to answer your questions, book follow up appointments and educate you on the part of their real estate business that make them shine!
