“Receiving this award for the first time three years ago, I had to read the email several times from our CEO, Philip White in Manhattan to see if it really was true. With over 14,000 agents in the U.S., I found it hard to believe an Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley agent could make this list with so many high-end markets like Manhattan, The Hamptons, Beverly Hills, San Francisco and West Palm Beach. I was very surprised! I am also, once again very excited to be flown first class from SFO to JFK in New York, with first class accommodations and a dinner at a Michelin starred restaurant. I must add that I admire how the other 23 top agents are very down to earth and extremely likable. I always tell my team, no matter how successful you are; please check any egos at the door before coming to the office. Believing in your success is my fear as I believe this will drop you to the bottom of the list. Stay focused, stay in your lane and execute on your business plan is my mantra.”
