Lifetime Achievement Award: ERA King Real Estate
ERA King Real Estate was founded in 1969 by Jack King and has never wavered from his vision of “Just Do The Right Thing”. In the 45+ years ERA King, the company, has never sold a property, but instead they say “our people do.” Therefore, ERA King has been able to outperform the markets by being the very best agent support service ever. While other companies were hanging on or disappearing during the recent recession, ERA King grew.
