Building a Winning Network: Maximizing Connections in Investment Real Estate

Networking plays a pivotal role in investment real estate, and athletes already have a head start in this area. Their collegiate athletic experience provides an extensive network of teammates, coaches, alumni, and supporters. By tapping into these connections, athletes can cultivate relationships with industry professionals, investors, and mentors who offer guidance, advice, and potential partnerships. Leveraging existing networks and forging new connections gives athletes a distinct advantage as they embark on their investment real estate careers. At New Western, we provide the opportunity for our agents to network at our regular company-hosted networking events, which we call  REI on Tap. We also help you provide more value to investors with our proprietary online Real Estate Investment Marketplace, strengthening  your value with network  connections. 


Going for Gold: Athletes’ Competitive Edge in Investment Real Estate

The inherent competitiveness ingrained in athletes gives them a unique advantage in the investment real estate industry.

Just as they strive for excellence on the field and court, athletes bring the same drive and determination to their real estate careers. They understand the importance of research, analysis, and staying ahead of the competition. This competitive mindset empowers athletes-turned-agents  to seek out lucrative investment opportunities, negotiate favorable deals, and deliver exceptional results for clients. Athletes can leverage their winning spirit to create a reputation for success and stand out in this highly competitive industry.
