Bill Smith Jr.

    Brown & Bigelow (asi/148500)

Gregg Emmer

    Kaeser & Blair (asi/238600)
    "Agents use many promo items to personalize their service. The real estate salesperson needs their identity to facilitate referrals and new listings."

    "The real estate market is very strong right now. Realtors really like low-cost, high-perceived-value promo products with full-color images."
