To Our Friends, Colleagues, and Community Members,
For some time I’ve been thinking about the title I’ve held since 2009 – and proudly so, I might add – President, Podley Properties. The reality, however, is that in recent years our wonderful management team has overseen the day to day operations as well as the long range planning of our firm. Thus, I have concluded the time has come to more formally acknowledge that our General Manager, Crystal Narramore, has earned the title of president and, as a result, I am taking the title of chairman of our company.
With deep appreciation and a warm wish to you and yours for a blessed holiday season and fulfilling year ahead,
