Welcome to Bayside Referrals,

Let me introduce you to a group

of passionate professionals

I know, like and trust.

As a seven year member of Bayside Referrals I am happy to say that the connections and relationships have been amazing for my real estate business.

My clients think of me as their "go to" gal, for pretty much any service they are needing at the time.

I always know that my when I recommend one of my BNI members to a client they will be given excellent service.

Kat Kitt, Counselor Realty


Joining BNI as a new business owner a little over 4 years ago, I have to say that this has been one of the best decisions I've made in business thus far.  Not only do I now have trusted contacts in numerous areas of business from my own Bayside Referrals chapter, but also access to trusted professionals within BNI as a whole.  Trusting the BNI philosophy of Giver's Gain, has proved to be fruitful and relationship marketing is now a part of all areas of my business, from clients, sub-contractors, employees and vendors.  What a great way to learn how to do business with others.  BNI has numerous options for training and ongoing continuing education, as well as leadership opportunities.  Being part of the Membership Committee for a couple years now has provided an excellent way to get to know all our members as well as learn about the guests that visit our chapter.  I highly recommend BNI for all businesses that want to bolster and grow their business with qualified leads!
