RISMedia's REAL ESTATE May 2019 29 L ast year at this time, Century 21 Real Estate unveiled a reinvention of its brand to completely overhaul one of the world's most recognizable icons.

I bring to the CEO position more than 21 years with Century 21 Real Estate. During that time, I met profes - sionals from all walks of life, made new friends and learned valuable life lessons. I'm here today not by accident, but by listening to the needs of our affiliated agents and brokers, better understanding their passion and commitment to help customers, and leveraging the advice of the C21® family to get things done with speed and convenience. Growth has been, is and will forever be my mantra.
