“Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but sail we must and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”

They say that if a shark stops swimming it dies. So they swim – and so should you.
To be successful and great you must get out and keep moving. You need to meet people, build your network, and keep sailing. So sail or swim to Dilbeck Realty on Aug. 11 for our business networking mixer. People do business with people they know. And the people to know will be at Dilbeck Realty on Wednesday Aug. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. These networking events attract 50-75 people who are ready to make new contacts. Shouldn’t you be one of them?
Our mixer host Dilbeck Realty had over 70 agents in the La Crescenta office. They are a community of real estate professionals dedicated to making a difference with integrity, innovation, care and excellence. Dilbeck agents consistently provide superior service through their unwavering commitment to honesty, integrity, knowledge, skill and innovation. Their agents continue as strong, progressive leaders in the communities they serve.  Come and meet their agents along with other people sailing to success in their respective businesses.
