We all know the power of social networking on the Internet, but what about B2B networking? After all, why should you allow your business endeavors to be inhibited by social and geographic limitations, when in fact the best deal for you could be offered by somebody all the way across the country who you’ve even never met before?
Enter Roy Abrams, a long-time tech executive and real estate developer, who contrived his new website, RealConnex, in order to streamline the dealmaking process and provide a platform to help commercial real estate professionals achieve the best possible outcome for their respective projects.
According to the company website, RealConnex provides assistance to the following real estate professionals in the following ways:
