2020 was a tough year for everyone, but especially so for small businesses that rely on face-to-face interaction and in-person showings! Despite all the challenges that 2020 threw at our agents, they rose to the occasion and worked even harder. Whether that meant digging deep into their continuing education, becoming Home Safe Certified, or connecting with their clients in creative (virtual) ways, our agents went above and beyond to continue delivering the best possible service during these trying times. We always look forward to celebrating and honoring those agents who have put a tremendous amount of time and effort into their business, as well as those who have gone above and beyond for the good of the company and their community.

This year we were delighted to hear from Coldwell Banker’s COO, Liz Gehringer, as she congratulated and encouraged our agents! She said, “Congratulations on a truly outstanding 2020! Who would’ve thought? You’ve just done an absolutely amazing job and 2021 only continues with this incredible optimism. I am so impressed by everything that you’re doing and it’s because you conduct yourselves the way that you do. You’re not just incredible professionals and experts, but you approach your business with such deep care.”
