“Adam Birch has been named #1 Rental Agent numerous time before, but this is the first time that he won the coveted #1 Sales and Rental Agent award.”

Mr. Birch said, “I would love to say thank you to everyone around me who freely offer support and guidance. I am honored by this award as it was such a team effort getting us to this point. My managers, my friends, my family, my customers/clients who give me continued business, they all helped me to find the success I’ve always geared towards.

“It’s been a great ride and can’t wait to push forward!”

Rochelle Swan, recipient of the #2 Sales and Rental Agent award, who has been recognized repeatedly over her career as one of our leading agents, said, “I’m so very thankful to everyone who has allowed me the opportunity to assist them with their real estate goals.  Additionally, my work colleagues are such an amazing source of knowledge and experience, and I continue to learn from them every day.

“We all experience seasons of peaks and valleys, ebbs and flows, highs and lows in this business. I’ve found over the 20 years that I have been doing this, that it is important to have shoulders broad enough to get over the disappointments, a mind and heart strong enough to keep moving forward when it feels like things aren’t coming together, and a spirit that remains teachable because none of us knows it all.”

“It’s been 17 years since I started with the company and time has flown so quickly. Colleagues, systems, data sources have all made the job that much easier to do at a high level. The collective experience of people in the office and the solid data make for a reliable and robust valuation environment. I’m grateful for that”.
