I was wondering if anyone has any experience building a relationship with a real estate broker. It seems like they are inherently competition (why would you buy stocks and other investments when you can be 100% real estate, right? : P), but I am meeting with one this week. This is by no means something I think will be a staple of my business, but if there is some way we can co-exist and scratch each other's backs, it could bring me a large account every now and then. All of his clients are HNW or UHNW and often have needs for 1031 exchanges, which we sometimes facilitate.
So, any value proposition I can provide him? Or expect from him?
