Our goal is to strategically set up locations convenient for our clients while, at the same time, be in or near areas our agents live,” explained Mark Spain Real Estate President John Makarewicz. “That way, they better understand the community and it adds quality of life to the agents because they spend less time commuting to work. At the same time, they are providing far better quality of service and expertise to our clients.”
