The Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene awards breakfast was held on March 11, where over 300 real estate agents from the company’s 20 offices attended.

Woodroof noted that the company experienced major changes during the year, and Eiland thanked the agents for trusting them. “It is your dedication to helping today’s consumer and your commitment to this industry that helped us achieve our extraordinary success this past year,” she said.
