Not only are they a very well-respected broker within the industry, but there is a real sense of team spirit within the office. It is nice to see a structured team, in a business that really invests in their staff and I am looking forward to helping them with that over the coming years.”
“I don’t think anyone can prepare you for starting a new job during the midst of a pandemic, but I have been made to feel very welcome since day one. Thanks to video conferencing platforms, I have been able to begin building a relationship with my team. I look forward to continue doing so in person when it is safe to do so.”
