    Thanks Karl,

    Yes, we are very happy to have Woody on board!

    But, I also want to say we are very honored to have the Top 10 Properties agents on board too.
    These are some very successful and talented individuals. They add a lot to the overall depth and breadth of experience and expertise to our growing company.

    This a great move for both Top 10 Properties and Beach Ball Realty.

    Right you are Kim! I know several agents from Top 10 and they are all great competent professionals. I’m excited to have them come on board. I just had to mention Woody due to his “sexy” status. That was just my strange sense of humor at work.
