Affordable housing real estate mogul Heidi Burkhart to headline GLP Speaker Series

'Be pleasantly persistent' is a phrase I coined, as so many are either relentless, annoying or don’t follow up enough in the industry," Heidi Burkhart said. "In sales, in life, in business, you need to be on top of things, but if you are too pushy then you will annoy people and they will not want to work with you no matter whether you produce or not. If you don’t follow up enough, you will lose deals."
Heidi Burkhart will be the guest speaker for the GLP's Speaker Series.

"'Be pleasantly persistent' is a phrase I coined, as so many are either relentless, annoying or don’t follow up enough in the industry," Burkhart told Authority Magazine. "In sales, in life, in business, you need to be on top of things, but if you are too pushy then you will annoy people and they will not want to work with you no matter whether you produce or not. If you don’t follow up enough, you will lose deals. If you are pleasantly persistent you will retain relationships and find a great tempo to getting deals done. I came up with this phrase when I was younger and managing people and trying to teach this lesson, and many have since caught on to it."

Burkhart founded Dane Professional Consulting Group in 2008, and it was one of the few solely woman-owned affordable housing real estate brokerages in New York. 

Her work centers on providing affordable housing to middle-class families in New York City.
