I also track all marketing activity to provide clear and concise client update reports to ensure the client is fully informed and aware of our efforts.
I am always excited when working with new industry tools to take our listings to market and have been a huge advocate for innovative tools to accelerate the success of not just our local team but that of our entire region, showing our clients and competitors the Colliers Difference.
