How is your job rewarding?
Selling a home and moving can be a stressful experience. Working with new residents, their family members and internal departments, I help make their new home something for them to enjoy. It’s heartwarming to hear someone tell me how happy they are that they’ve moved to Givens Estates, they love their new home and they wished they would have made the move sooner. I hear it often and I know I’m in the right job at the right company!
