Networking is only one of many ways to establish and grow a successful career in real estate and mortgage — but it’s an important one! There are a number of ways to network in this industry, you should find the one that fits best for you.
Leveraging social media is a great way to build your network. This includes having a professional social media profile that clearly identifies you as a licensed loan officer. You can also use it as a platform to share tips and updates on the market, and reach out to other professionals. There are also many Facebook groups where loan officers come together to talk shop.
Visit open houses
Building connections with other real estate professionals and their clients is a great way to fuel your growth. One way to do this is by stopping by open houses in your local neighborhood to meet agents and buyers. It’s important to be casual, approachable and friendly, introducing yourself and sharing your knowledge about financing options.
