Best of the West launched in March 2016 after months of collaboration between co-founders Tony Reffeitt of Integrity Real Estate and Lacey Verbik of Imagine Virtual Assistant Services. The two developed a revolutionary new networking group exclusive to companies that serve the greater Hendricks County area as well as Indy’s west side.
We’re very pleased by the initial receptivity to our vision and the caliber of members we’ve attracted. It’s fulfilling to watch Best of the West grow and offer value to businesses and residents of the west side,” Reffeitt said.
Best of the West aims to connect individuals seeking good and services to the best local providers of those goods and services. This task is accomplished through a network of local professionals with an infrastructure supporting their endeavors to meet and serve new clientele. Membership is by invitation only and is exclusive to those who are truly among the “best of the west.” This means that consumers can expect high level services and customer relations from top performers.
Membership in the organization is industry exclusive. Members receive a number of benefits, including a client facing profile page on the Best of the West website. This site incorporates information about the member’s business with innovative features such as appointment scheduling, a 3D virtual model of the place of business, a map to the business, links to social media sites, and more. Yearly headshots keep membership profiles up to date while professional video footage helps potential clients get to know members.
Perhaps the most powerful benefit is behind the scenes. Best of the West membership includes access to a powerful customer relationship management program that tracks referrals, earnings, and more. With purposeful and effective weekly meetings including a semi-monthly catered luncheon and virtual meetings on the opposite weeks, members stay connected and aware of one another’s business models, promotions, and ideal clients. This allows them to make smart referrals, which is better business for everyone.
Members are also highlighted on the TownOfBrownsburg.com website, which serves as a resource for Hendricks County residents.
