"SBR Realty is extremely excited and very happy with its decision to join the African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey. SBR Realty joined AACCNJ in October of 2010, and have since attended several networking events that connected us with a couple hundred professionals from various parts of New Jersey. As a result of these networking events, we have found at least 10 solid professionals with whom we are working to build successful business relationships.

The African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey has been a very good resource for locating various service providers and vendors, as well as providing great ideas and methods on expanding our business. We have learned some tactics on how to go after our market share within the communities we service.

SBR Realty believes being a part of the AACCNJ will definitely help us expand our knowledge of business as well as extend our operation into additional communities.

The cost of being a member of this organization cannot compare to the benefits."

"From the very beginning the AACCNJ told us they would be our partner and assist us with our outreach efforts in the minority business community.

John Harmon and his team at the AACCNJ did just that. His team helped us secure several prospect appointments in a short period of time. We at the Alamo Insurance Group were very impressed with the professionalism and speed with which the AACCNJ team were able to find qualified prospective clients and create a business connection.

They understood our needs, they understood our business and they helped with the strategic growth of our organization. They are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to a continued long term and prosperous relationship."

"I have been very fortunate to have known John Harmon when he was the President of MTAACC; now as President and CEO of AACCNJ, the Chamber is a networking tool for our growth in business and has been a boost to our bottom line.

The many programs and events that the Chamber offers gives us the opportunity to meet our next new client. Whenever we have a question about financing, marketing, banking etc., we can always call the Chamber to get the right answers to our questions. I believe in order to grow and sustain your business we always need to identify new clients and new revenue streams.

In March we had the opportunity to meet and talk to the Lt. Gov. of New Jersey, it was because of that opportunity at the AACCNJ event; we are now working with the Governor’s office to have the Lt. Governor visit our office here in Trenton, NJ."

"Membership in the AACCNJ has developed me personally as well as professionally. AACCNJ provided an environment for growth. I am exposed to such a variety of contacts through the networking events, and many referrals. Within the first week of joining I was able to give my business a big voice in the market which doubled my client base.

In the development of your business it is important to network to gain exposure. John Harmon, President & CEO of AACCNJ makes it his mission to help all of the members find the needs of their business and to grow and develop them. I have discovered the mutual benefits of the AACCNJ by giving and receiving valuable information and services. The services that the AACCNJ provides are beneficial to our whole community but especially to the business sector"

As we cultivate these relationships, we are confident that they will result in solid, business opportunities. Additionally, the Chamber creates a climate of "advocacy" that is essential for our business."
