My prior affiliation with the Prudential Real Estate organization afforded me recognitions as a Chairman’s Award recipient. Given to only the top 3% of agents within the Global Prudential Real Estate organization of over 60,000 agents. I was also the top listing and selling agent within the Prudential Palmetto Realtors office having sold nearly $30,000,000 million dollars of real estate in a two year period.

In 2007, given market changes my personal average days on the market are 45 days vs. the market average of 95 days.
