Second Chance Saturday: Week 62

Education & Training with U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.

"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams

Not anymore.  I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed.  That's what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  Tag me in any posts you read that you'd like to see in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Referrals Matter! Referrals Rock!  How I Select Agents To Refer To...
By: Nina Hollander  
"If I’ve learned anything over the course of the past 25 years in the real estate profession, it's that when I refer anyone to one of my clients (be it an agent, inspector, lender, appraiser, contractor, etc.), my name is forever associated with the person I’ve referred."
