When I was an active agent, I belong to a TIPS group, based on the BNI model.  It was very effective because we were focused on helping each other increase our business.  And, we were supportive of each other when doing business.

I was a member of BNI for over 25 years. I quit after all that time the day I got more business from blogging than from BNI. I loved BNI but I counted the time it took to get dressed, put on makeup, get my son to a friend's house, the drive there, then parking, then the meeting, then I would stay to do my "dance cards", then drive to pick up my son, then drive home... then have to unwind because of all of that. It was a whole day gone and then the rest of the week connecting people together and giving out referrals. I quit when the market crashed and we started getting 4 short sale listings a week from blogging on AR. Katerina
