Without a supportive environment, true commitment and passion towards our industry, clients and colleagues, we will be ever diligent in our efforts to retain consumer confidence and continue to grow our business not based on how many agents we can recruit but rather on how many very professional and ethical agents we can attract to our brokerage.
