The group was recognized at an event held May 2-4 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. President Martin J. Rueter and James Weichert, Jr.,
co-president of Weichert, Realtors, presented the awards to this year’s Premier Client Group.
“The select few invited to this year’s Premier Client Group gathering represent our most successful Weichert affiliates from around the country,” said Rueter. “The hard work they put forth, along with an ongoing commitment to provide the highest level of real estate service available to their clients, is reflected in our Premier Client Group’s outstanding performance last year. Congratulations
to an amazing group of real estate professionals.”
