And when he heard about this opportunity to help heroes save money, he jumped at the chance to become an affiliate with a national program called Homes for Heroes®. This program offers George the opportunity to provide savings for Military Personnel/Veterans, Police Officers, Firefighters, First Responders, Teachers, and Health Care Workers - those who provide a special service to our communities.

      George partners with HFH affiliate realtors in the Pittsburgh, PA area to provide maximum savings for heroes who are buying, selling, or refinancing their home. All savings are applied toward closing costs.

    Mission Statement:

    Our mission is to provide a creative, professional, comfortable and fun environment for business owners, independent professional and sales people to cultivate relationships and expand their business base.

    Carol A. Briney founded Business Leads Exchange Networking Group™ in 2004.

    The vision for this group was founded on the premise that PEOPLE DO BUSINESS WITH THOSE THEY KNOW, LIKE AND TRUST. You will often hear Carol say "there is more than enough business out there for all of us." Being non-exclusive forces all of us to bring our A game each and every time we meet.

    There are NO membership dues at Business Leads Exchange. Business people attend our events because they are effective, high energy and fun. Not because they paid a yearly fee or are obligated to attend.

    BLX combines both free form and structured networking at each meeting to enable people to make quality personal and professional relationships.

    You will ultimately get out of BLX what you put into it!

    Business Leads Exchanged has evolved over the years.
