This Week's Meeting

Dennis Pechinski,, Weaver Dairy Real Estate

Aspects and Processes of a Real Estate Transaction

I grew up in Wisconsin and at the age of 34, I decided I wanted to help people with the biggest purchase they typically do, purchasing real estate. I started Weaver Dairy Real Estate 3 years ago after 26 years of service to the public I decided I did not need to share a percentage of my commissions with a company anymore. This Wednesday's presentation will touch on various aspects and processes of the real estate transaction.

See you there.

More importantly, Bring plenty of Business Cards and be ready to network!

"Our Common Link"

"Our most common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We breath the same air, we cherish our children's future and we are all mortal " President John F. Kennedy

I thought that this statement is representative of the members of the Chapel Hill Leads Group, we also have a common link. That is, the desire to help each other prosper in our respective business's.

It is a very an attainable goal because it take so little effort. All each of us needs to do is to make the effort to attend the Leads Group regularly and stay behind a few moments to speak with another member about their business and how you can help them in utilizing the many resources available within our membership. That effort will make for a good return on that effort/investment. My life experiences as well as those in the business-world for over 47 years has a proven track record of success.

We now have the opportunity to chart our course towards financial freedom and positive business growth. It is our common link.

I hope that you will accept my invitation to join me this Wednesday morning and to witness for yourself the reason why the Chapel Hill Leads Group has been the leader in business referral groups throughout the Triangle Region.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
