ORRA Member Pricing: $10
Instructor: Linda Olson

Most REALTORS® agree that networking is critical to long-term success in real estate. Despite consumers' assumptions that REALTORS® are outgoing and networking comes naturally, in fact, many REALTORS® dread networking. It is often perceived as an awkward, forced and unnatural exchange - which only leads to sweaty palms, uncomfortable silences and unproductive conversations. How do you leave those shaky knees behind and become better at networking? Start with attending this program! You will leave with solid strategies and techniques that will allow you to feel more comfortable in networking settings, make a positive impression and generate new contacts.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
• Recognize how successful networking can help you establish yourself as a professional 
• Identify seven habits of successful networks
• Prepare an "elevator speech"
• Formulate a plan to successfully network an event
• Develop a list of questions to be used for conversation starters 
• Assess when the conversation is over and how to tactfully move on
• And much more!
