Houston Business Journal recently announced that Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors took top place on its list of Largest Houston-area Residential Real Estate Brokerage Firms. The brokerage earned its No. 1 ranking with 6,214 transactions and over $1.44 billion in dollar volume.
The company’s partners Marilyn Eiland and Mark Woodroof manage the day-to-day operations of the real estate powerhouse.
“[Respect, trust and charity] are the building blocks of the company,” said Woodroof in an article for The Paper Magazine. “Every decision we’ve made in growing the company has been guided by these core values.”
Eiland places her trust in the strong support staff and the more than 800 agents who work at the company’s 24 locations in the greater Houston area. “These agents are gifted, hard-working professionals who have a thorough knowledge of this business. It isn’t something that everyone can do. They pay attention to what the market is doing, and they listen intently to what their clients want and need,” said Eiland in the article.
The partners are constantly on the look out for the latest in technology that will help them enhance their operations. “It is an exciting time for the business as mobile technologies continue to develop and evolve. These powerful tools provide our agents with instant information, which is key in competing in today’s market,” said Woodroof.
Not only a powerhouse in the real estate front, Prudential Gary Greene is also a leader in philanthropic enterprises. The company has raised over $3 million for Sunshine Kids, a nonprofit organization benefiting children with cancer. The company has been recognized as the top Sunshine Kids contributor in the Prudential Network of brokers across North America for a number of years.
G.W. Bailey, executive director of the Sunshine Kinds Foundation and an actor on TNT’s The Closer, was also quoted in Paper Magazine regarding Prudential Gary Greene. “They have made it possible for us to create more activities for more kids with cancer – not only in Houston but all across the U.S. and Canada. They have had an enormous, incalculable impact on our operations.”
