Where do you draw the line when it comes to sharing information?

Where do you draw the line when it comes to sharing information?  Since I've been in real estate (over 11 years now) I done a lot of work selling condos in the complex where I live, Cromwell Hills. I also done rentals in Cromwell Hills as well.  Which has lead to my building up a reputation of being a good, going above and beyond, Realtor. I've worked hard to get where I am now, by doing my due diligence for my clients.  To the point that I am now getting referrals from these people I've assisted.

With this, other agents and brokers in the area (going all the way to along the coast line of CT) are calling wanting to know how I am keeping deals together.  Who am I working with, can they have their names and numbers of these people and companies, because they are trying to sell condos in this complex too?  Cromwell, CTis in the center of the state and holds a lot of interest for many different reasons. One in particular is that being centrally located in the state, and gas prices still being over $4.00 a gallon here, commuting is optimal from this area.

My question is...Would you give all your contacts and connections to another agent to make their job easier, or would you graciously have them do this work themselves?  Where do you draw the line when it comes to sharing information?
