Scott SavacoolNetworking!  It’s a focus for many CRE professionals, and it’s one of the many benefits CORFAC Affiliates receive.  CORFAC has two conferences a year for members and holds webinars throughout the year to help firms network and learn from one another.

2015 CORFAC President Scott Savacool of Sansone Group/CORFAC International has a plan for the year ahead. In the most recent issue of Midwest Real Estate News, he explained how the power of networking can help CRE pros navigate a challenging industry – and how CORFAC Affiliates benefit from the experienced and talented network.

Scott on CORFAC conferences:
“When you attend conferences like this, or when you meet with people in the network, you can leverage a lot of the experience of like-minded professionals who’ve encountered the same situations you are working through. We have some of the most successful brokers around the country in this network. We have companies in 40 of the top 50 MSAs around the country. That’s a great footprint. And there is a lot of expertise you can tap into by being part of this network.”

Scott on referrals:
“There’s a comfort level with referrals. You know when you send a client to a broker in this network that your client isn’t going to get paired up with a rookie broker who’s still learning. That’s the last thing you want your client to have to go through. With this network, when I refer clients I know that my client is going to receive the benefit of working with an experienced professional. They are not going to get connected to someone who doesn’t know the business.”

Scott on the preparedness of affiliates:
“The companies in this network are very nimble. They can adjust and adapt quickly to changes. It’s great to be around so many people who are focused on doing business the right way. They are constantly focusing on best practices. And they’re not shy about sharing their strategies with the other brokers in the network. That’s a real help in today’s market.”
