The Four Rivers Association Members voted a REALTOR® they felt demonstrated leadership, community service and all around good professional conduct to their industry. It was completely unexpected. Aside from active REALTORS®, I’ve learned it expands far beyond that, to include someone that exemplifies what a REALTOR® is. That is why this is such an honor for me.”, says Julie Gezella
