Congratulations to Sales Associate, Preston Bovee, The Clare / Gladwin Board of REALTORS' Rookie of the Year!

At their annual holiday party last week, our very own Preston Bovee was honored as The Clare / Gladwin Board of REALTORS Rookie of the Year for 2016.  Preston topped all other first year agents in total sales volume and units sold.  It's no surprise to those of us who know Preston and how hard he works.  Preston's background in video production for the outdoors industry and his local knowledge of the surrounding lakes and woodlands puts him at a huge advantage when working with waterfront and recreational buyers.  

Preston focuses on selling hunting acreage throughout eastern mid Michigan under our Homewaters Outdoors brand and waterfront properties in Midland, Arenac and Bay counties.  Maybe most impressive is the fact that Preston accomplished this while building their own home, in Coleman, which he and his family will move into early next year.  

Preston carries on a long tradition of new agents finding early success with Homewaters.  We take a lot of pride in helping those well suited to the industry find success quickly so they can build a lasting real estate career.  If you'd like to learn more about Preston click HERE for his full story.  If you have family or friends who have real estate needs in Midland or the surrounding areas, contact Preston at your first convenience. You'll be happy you did!
