One of our newer members Tom Langston, joined WAM! looking for help developing his personal skills and using our peer to peer coaching format to help him learn more ways to better serve his clients. At the same time, I think Tom is going to help a lot of your members with his knowledge of the commercial real estate industry.
Tom has a lot of expertise in market research, site selection and contract negotiation, representing tenants and landlords, buyers and sellers in the sale, purchase, and leasing of retail, office and industrial properties. He focuses on providing services in client representation, lease and sales contract negotiation and market research in the Richmond market and surrounding areas. Tom is a graduate of Longwood University with a B.A. in Social Studies Education.
Tom hasn’t committed to a specific meeting and is interested in starting a 7:30am meeting. He can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 804.338.1032 or 803.320.7600
I personally have been networking for several years now and have attended several different types of organizations. Working with PRO Richmond has taught me to think outside the box and get away from traditional thinking. Traditional networking teaches you to make referrals and to stay only in your networking circle. PRO Richmond has taught me, among many other things, to give introductions. Introductions do not require me to recommend anyone or have a personal investment in either party. Instead if I simply introduce two people who I know, it puts the onus on them to take that introduction and run. In years past I was skeptical to make referrals unless I could absolutely guarantee their work which not only limits my ability to give but in turn would stop people from introducing me.
PRO Richmond members have taken a personal interest in seeing my business grow. They point out that a typical elevator speech is pointless As they would typically remind me, nobody cares if your speech is the same as everyone else in your industry. Instead they have taught me to develop a niche. If you ask for introductions to everyone, you get nothing. If you ask for something specific, chances are somebody can relate. And if people can relate they are much more willing to help you out.
Bottom line, PRO Richmond has been a major part of my successes. Walter is always willing to take the time to help you out. Whether that is taking a phone call, returning an email or meeting for lunch, he is always willing to help.
