Peter has put together a list of Ten Ways To Benefit From Attending A Live Dealmaking Event!
1) Dispose of Property
This forum allows you to present your listing to brokers from all over the country gaining maximum exposure for your sellers.
2) Acquire Property/Project
Attending this meeting will expose you to a variety of properties that you might not have seen on the marketplace, thus gaining more opportunities to present to your buyers.
3) Solve a problem
Ever have a tough listing? At this event you will hear how others are handling the same type of tough listings. Maybe you can exchange out of it into something else.
4) Obtain Funding
Many times participants have contacts with lines of cash. Attending this forum may provide you with additional resources to close deals.
You will leave this event with a directory of all the participants and contact information. This will allow you to meet and network with other commercial practitioners from around the country.
6) Provide Funding
Do you have a client that has cash and isn’t making a great return at the bank? Do you have a client that would like to improve their return on their IRA? You can present your “cash” and find a suitable opportunity.
7) Obtain Expertise
There will be other practitioners at this event with the same situations that you have as well as practitioners that have a special expertise. Come meet with them and build your network!
8) Provide Expertise
Do you have a unique specialty? Offer up your specialty to other brokers that may need yourservices in the future.
9) Provide Services
Do you provide niche services? This is an ideal forum to let other commercial practitioners what you do.
You will always come away with a new idea or approach to handling a certain listing or how to help a buyer through a situation.
