Hidden talents most people don't know about: 
Sorry, signed paperwork that said I couldn't talk about it for 50 years, but I did go swimming in the Marianas Trench, my dad introduced me to General Omar Bradley who I got to spend some time with, and I did sleep at a Holiday in Express last night (just kidding on the last one)

Proud accomplishment: 
Being married to the most awesome woman in the world and the greatest kids who supported, sacrificed and allowed me to honorably serve over 30 years of active duty service in the United States Navy.

Rangers Football Club in the Scottish Premiership who's home pitch is Ibrox in Glasgow, Scotland 

Guilty pleasure: 
Golf, but will take fishing with the family over it if I can get them all together.

Bucket List:
Top five:
·   Visit Antarctica, it's the only continent I haven't been on.  Due to international treaties I was not allowed to go there because of answer to hidden talents and what I did in the service.
·   Space flight, visit space station.  Either works, but you have to achieve the first to get to the second, so we might as well bundle.    
·   Patent (successful) invention
·   Visit the next tallest building in the world, I have already done the Berj Khalifa
·  Live long enough to see this nation heal and pay off its debts so our children and grandchildren and their children are not saddle with it.

Hurricane Matthew

As we reflect on the past week leading up to and following Hurricane Matthew, we could not be more proud of our property management team. Matt, Bob, Duane, Mike, Dane, Vicki, and Betsy all deserve a huge pat on the back for the job they do every day, but especially for the tremendous work in preparation for and following the storm over the past week.
Starting with meetings early in the week, the team worked together and calmly structured a plan on how to prepare each property the week of and then how they would work together once the storm had passed.  On 9AM Saturday morning, we had a conference call to assess the situation and follow up personally with the owners of every property we manage.  Throughout the weekend we received updates via a group text with the entire team on the status of our properties. 

We are proud of every member of the property management team for their exceptional representation of NAI Hallmark Partners in this time of crisis.  We are a company that values teamwork, exceptional customer service, and a passion for what we do, and these values were very evident in the effort that was put forth this past week.
