When I started to build my network I tried various groups. Some were completely free and informal. Others were socially oriented, with big lavish networking events. I made valuable connections at these, but over the course of 2 years, made very little real progress in building a funnel of high-quality referrals. I joined PRE around the same time, and with the other members started building our chapter in Downingtown. Two years later PRE stands out as by far my most productive marketing endeavor. So far, from PRE referrals alone, I’ve brought in about $4,000,000 of assets into Sterling’s management.

What Our Members Say
I was invited to come to a PRE chapter as a guest, and went to a meeting where I learned the group meet EVERY week at an early hour. I'm not a morning person, and thought to myself - EVERY week? No way! However, explaining the group and it's procedures to my husband after that first meeting, I realized it could be a great thing to be part of. When I returned for a second guest meeting, five - five! - people remembered me by name. "I decided to join, and if I could recoup the expenses of membership and quarterly dues in business generated by referrals, I'd continue to be a member. Well, I earned way over the expenses needed, and have been a member for 5 years, and just joined for my 6th year! My PRE chapter members have become friends, business associates, and trusted colleagues. I'm still not happy about the early hour - haha - but I get energized and jazzed by these meetings, and love them - and my PRE family, too!
