How does your space tell your company’s story and reflect its brand?

In early 2015, our employees and brokers gathered together in our Boardroom to discover our values. We wanted to know what we all have in common. These were discovered to be Integrity, Communication, Loyalty, Success, and Camaraderie. Our values are extremely significant to us, to our work, and to our way of life. We strive to acquire top talent who mirror these values and integrate them into their daily work ethic. Three different custom acrylic signs within our space reflect these values and our company logos. We have received numerous compliments from visitors regarding their unique design.
