Gardner. "It's things like this that Gertrude always appre- ciated when she was here with us." Gardner-Phillips says that with the combined efforts of GARDNER REALTORS® and the New Orleans Mission, "the community project helps, on average, 80 women at any given time. The amazing stories we hear make us so invested in our mission. "It's super cool to see such a big impact when we com - bine our efforts and join together for a common cause," adds Gardner-Phillips. "Right now, we have 87 of our RE - ALTORS® who are committed to supporting the homeless and the community by giving away part of their commis - sion from each transaction." GARDNER REALTORS® zones in on the relationship- building on the consumer side, as well. Partnering with LoLo, the brokerage supports the community by sending over 11,000 gifts to clients from locally-owned business - es—and this number is steadily climbing. The camaraderie also exists within GARDNER REAL - TORS® itself. In fact, it's another clear differentiator be- tween them and competing brokerages. "We're not a franchise. We're locally-owned and have 24 offices. We all work together. If you're an agent with our company, you can work in any office with any man - ager. In other companies, offices compete against each other," says Sharon Gardner, VP of Corporate Services. And this difference hasn't gone unnoticed. The broker - age received various accolades in 2018, including "Best Residential Real Estate Company" by New Orleans City - Business readers and "Top Workplace" by NOLA.com and The Times Picayune for the fourth year in a row—the only brokerage to achieve this—among others. "It means a lot that third parties recognize our achievements," says Gardner-Phillips. "This year, we were also recognized with 'The Ethics Award,' which only one company is awarded annually by NOLA.com/ The Times Picayune." Chip Gardner, VP of Operations, adds, "Our real es - tate family was also proud to see my father, Glenn Gardner, who's been serving as president of GARDNER REALTORS® for 40 years, be presented with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®' s lifetime achieve - ment award, 'Leader of the Year.' In addition, we're all very proud that our founder, Gertrude Gardner, recently received the great honor of being chosen to be featured in a special New Orleans Tricentennial tribute and com - memorative book titled, '300 for 300: People Who Made New Orleans, New Orleans.'" "We're doing something we believe in to help our REAL - TORS® create the life they love and to help buyers and sellers achieve the same thing," says Glenn Gardner. "We love doing what we do."
