Good People Know Good People” – A Conversation with Patte Gilbert, Top L.A. Realtor, About Building a Successful Business on Referrals | RR69
Manage episode 272636344 series 2521398
The power of building relationships for business is never as important as it is in the real estate industry – and no one does it better than my guest, Patte Gilbert. She has built her reputation as a top agent in the Calabasas & Hidden Hills areas of Southern California by caring about her clients.
She has been an agent for over 30 years and has represented over 3,000 clients. She has received countless industry awards and has been a Top Producer, nationwide, for Sotheby's International Real Estate. She is an Estate Agent, Director of Education and Resources and has participated in a global panel for all of Sotheby's franchises. Her representation of Sellers and Buyers spans a wide range of clientele that include first time home buyers, out-of-state relocations, entertainment industry executives and celebrities.
Patte is known for her strong sense of integrity, attention to detail and skilled negotiating. Most of her clients will acknowledge that some of her key phrases are, "You aren't going to buy something that I wouldn't live in" and "There are no problems, just solutions". These very characteristics are many of the reasons that her business is almost exclusively generated by past clients and referrals...a true testimonial to her successful real estate career.
Most importantly, Patte has stepped in and embraced the new technological and social media venues of doing real estate via the Internet. She also creates access to Internet applications that allow her buyers and sellers to view properties at their leisure.
Patte values her real estate successes but her personal success comes from helping others. Known in the community as being an advocate of education, she strongly supports the fundraising efforts of the local schools. When not 'cheering on the teams', she also contributes her time and charitable donations to Haven Hills, Pacific Boys Lodge, local Animal Shelters and Breast Cancer Awareness.

A little about me:
I began my career as a teacher, was a corporate trainer for many years, and then found my niche training & supporting business owners, entrepreneurs & sales professionals to network at a world-class level. My passion is working with motivated people, who are coachable and who want to build their businesses through relationship marketing and networking (online & offline). I help my clients create retention strategies, grow through referrals, and create loyal customers by staying connected.
