CEO and Co-Founder Harold Crye honored the region's agents and award recipients at Crye-Leike's Jackson Kick-Off meeting in January.
"We are very proud of the dedication and commitment seen by all of our agents and top producers," said Crye. "2019 was a record-breaking year for the company and would not have been possible without their hard-work and drive."
Congratulations to the following Crye-Leike associates:
Realtor Julie Bishop - Top Producing Agent
Bishop, a real estate professional for 17 years, is affiliated with Crye-Leike's Madison branch office. This is the third consecutive year that Bishop has received this award, although she has received it numerous years before as well. A multi-million dollar producer, Bishop has continued her education over the years, earning the designations of Certified Relocation Agent (CRA) and Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI) from the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). She is also in the process of earning the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation in 2020. Bishop is proud of achievements and looks forward to helping her clients in the future.
"It is truly an honor to represent Crye-Leike as a 2019 top producer," said Bishop. "My goal is to make each day better than the one before, because I know I am so blessed to have the opportunities to positively affect the lives of others day-in and day-out!"
Realtor Ronald "Ronnie" Bennett - Rookie of the Year
Bennett joined Crye-Leike's Brandon branch office in 2019 as a new Realtor. Due to his impressive sales volume and industry involvement during the first four months of his real estate career, he was named Crye-Leike's Rookie of the Year for his region.
Prior to joining the real estate industry, Bennett worked as a rural mail carrier for 34 years in Mississippi. He is also a veteran of the United States Army, served overseas in Vietnam from 1968-1969, and is a proud member of the American Legion. Bennett now looks forward to advancing his career in real estate and being an asset to the Brandon community.
