FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
President - Coldwell Banker M.M Parrish Realtors
July 9, 2012
Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish Realtors is growing. Despite what some people characterize as a slow real estate market, CBMMP has added a number of well-known local members of the real estate community. Says President J Parrish, "We're very optimistic about the future and I think people are attracted to that optimism. Everyone wants to be in a growing, exciting environment and we're creating that here."
Beau Beery, Partner and President of Coldwell Banker Commercial, echoed those sentiments, "Part of our company mission is to create what we call a 'culture of success' which is a positive, upbeat atmosphere that fosters productivity and makes for a fun work environment. It doesn't matter what the market is doing, we're going to be successful."
People seem attracted to that kind of attitude as evidenced by the new faces in the office over that past few months: Norma Adams, Bill Wariner and Jeff Dautel from ERA Preferred Properties, Perry Pursell, Margaret Posey and Larry Alvarez from Remax, Annette Armstrong from Prudential Trend Realty, Amy Hogue from Cole Development and Realty, Joanne Lawlor from Century 21 Lakeside, Jacqui Knowles from Campus Realty. New additions from Bosshardt Realty Services include Rick Cain, Michael Kitchens, Brent Riley and Gail Riley.
J Parrish points out that several recent additions are a direct result of naming Mike Kitchens as the Executive Vice President in charge of sales. "Mike's reputation in the local industry is so good that people know they're going to get unmatched support. Mike is such a positive sales leader that good agents appreciate having him to back them up."
Jacqui Knowles, a residential specialist who recently joined the team, says, "Joining Coldwell Banker has been the best decision for my real estate career. With a strong brand presence as well as history of success in the Gainesville area, Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish has provided me with the opportunity to grow my business. I feel fortunate to work among the most professional, educated and dedicated agents in the industry."
Another newcomer, commercial real estate veteran Perry Pursell, adds, "The Coldwell Banker Commercial brand is commanding a lot of respect in the marketplace. We have so many tools and approaches that I've never seen anywhere else. And they work." Former GACAR President and the newest CBMMP addition Brent Riley adds, "It's refreshing to work with the Leadership here. They are approachable and responsive. That creates an atmosphere of success for the agents and ultimately our clients."
According to J Parrish, "This is just the beginning. We have a long-term plan for dynamic growth. As the market continues to improve, we're going to be well-positioned to take maximum advantage."
