Eric started coming to Yvette’s events earlier this year and appreciates it as a great place to build relationships, both personal and business.
“The fact is this is the only networking event where people are not in your face with their business cards,” noted Eric.
According to Eric, “Here (at Yvette’s events) you get to know people, and if there is an affinity, you do business.”
Eric, who has 13 years of experience in Las Vegas real estate, understands the importance of relationship building.
“My business runs almost exclusively on referrals,” Eric noted, “people that know and trust me.”
Eric pointed that this his relationships allow him access to all of the foreclosures in town. In fact, he added, sometimes he can get people into houses before they go on the market.
According to Yvette, her events are all about the relationships.
“We’ve had so many new couples meet each other at our events,” Yvette remarked. “And I am happy that it has happened to me.”

According to Yvette, she met Brittany at one of her events as well.
“She is extremely beautiful and looks like Vanessa Williams,” Yvette stated. “I adore her. We are very excited to have her featured tonight.”
Brittany Williams, Miss U.S. Galaxy Nevada 2012, also enjoys meeting new people at Cosmopolitan Connections events.
“I always love Yvette’s events,” Brittany Williams, Miss U.S. Galaxy 2012 stated. “It’s a good group of people.”
“Everything Yvette does I am there,” Brittany added. “She is professional but fun.”
Lily Bar and Lounge once again proved a great venue to host the event.
“We just absolutely love Lily,” Yvette stated. “We have been having events here since it was Caramel (the lounge that Lily replaced).”
“We love the two-for-one drinks,” Yvette added. “And we give away a comp table and bottle to the person who brings the most friends. This is a $425 value.”
According to Desiree Noriega, VIP Host for Lily Bar and Lounge, she’s known Yvette for over two years, since she met Yvette during an event at the Gold Lounge at Aria.
“Yvette is a great hostess. “ Desiree stated. “This (Yvette’s event) is a great social forum for people to meet other people in business.”
“She always brings a classy crowd, people who know how to act” Desiree added. “This is the crowd we want at Lily.”
