I selected Lingle Real Estate
“Relationship/friendship with Paul. Lingle’s reputation.”
Biggest Benefits of Being at Lingle Real Estate
and marketing share.
Support of Paul
to agents and to keeping us on the cutting edge of technology.
my Career Has Progressed Since I’ve Been at Lingle
“I have increased my volume, income and average sale every year except
my second. For the last 3 years I have been the #3 residential producer.”
“I literally joined Lingle with Paul’s encouragement because I thought
I had tried everything else! I was pleasantly surprised at how much I
enjoyed the business and how quickly I built my business. From what I
know of other offices in Richmond and around the country, I think we are
spoiled because of all that Paul and his staff do to support agents. Very
few other agents with whom I have spoken have similar relationships with
their brokers. My only regret is that I did not do this 30 years ago!
If you would like to literally own your own business but without a lot
of the headaches and expenses associated with business ownership you could
not choose a better career than real estate with Lingle. As I tell my
clients and prospects, ‘There’s Lingle and there’s not exactly’.”
