Congrats to all award winners! Hard work and dedication has paid off. Special congrats to my region colleagues: Terry Drynan – Broker / Owner of the Year! and to two top Commercial people: Sam Narayan & his team as well as Scott Hughes team! Nice going!

Is it possible to see the other photos taken? I would love to see my photo with Karri Callahan or from the red carpet.

Congratulations to everyone for their hard work, accomplishments, and awards this year. And a special shout out to the owners of my Brokerage firm, Brad, Alan & Mike, at RE/MAX Professionals. Thanks for caring so much for the local community and the agents at our shop. I’m glad to be part of our organization!
