The Rainmakers’ Forum

New Client Development as a Members of the Real Estate Developers & Investors Council

This is an initiative conceived of, and managed by The Rainmakers’ Forum. It focuses upon two effective ways of generating new clients for you:

  1. Arranging for you to appear as an expert in periodic panel presentations to targeted referral sources and client prospects. We plan these quarterly.
  2. Arranging for you to meet with prospective clients in group sessions with other Council members to offer initial feedback and advice to them. You will subsequently follow up with the prospects to convert them into clients.

As an added bonus, Council members also have an opportunity to collaborate with each other, sharing resources and cross-referring prospects to each other. Here are the key elements:

1) Targeted clients for Rainmakers participants:

Real estate developers, investors and ancillary products/services providers.

2) Methods of placing Council members before client prospects:

  • Thirty-Five Minute Bricks and Dirt Report: Quarterly on-line or live meetings with referral sources and prospective clients. There are two versions – commercial and residential.
    Purpose – To educate attendees about various topics relating to real estate development and investment.
  • Investment Assistance Program: A comprehensive multi-faceted initiative to provide necessary accounting, consulting, financial, legal and tax advisory services – especially for off-shore investors in USA real estate.

3) Time requirements for Council members:

A) Two hours, eight times a year to be a presenter in the Thirty-Five Minute Bricks and Dirt Report.

B) Two – three hours per month, meeting with other Council members and investors seeking to acquire USA properties, as an element of the Investment Assistance Program.

Total: Between 32 and 44 hours per year.

4) Rainmakers accepted on Council:

Professionals and business leaders with real estate development and investment experience. International contacts a plus.
