St Augustine, St Johns County Real Estate & Home Staging


More Success for Agents I work with and greatly admire!!

This morning I received an email from Michele Reneau, a Carolina One agent that I work with on a significant basis.  She just won an award for closing the most units in her company, at a whopping 48 units! I had emailed her last night congratulating her and asking her if she would mind faxing me the awards program so that I could send cards to winners.  When she emailed me this morning I just about wanted to jump up and down to hear who had been recognized....

Pam Bishop, #1 GCI , Everett Presson #2 GCI

And I unfortunately don't know what awards these were for, but they were also recognized --

Pier 1 Properties ( Matt Poole and Randall Sandin   &   Ann Coggiola

All of these agents work for Carolina One Real Estate in Charleston and ALL OF THEM use our staging services!!  I'm so proud and impressed to work with such phenomenal agents!!
