Hallmark Launches Redesigned Newsletter & Website
Late 4th century Roman writer Vegetius is credited with the quote, "In time of peace, prepare for war." This may be a bit extreme to describe this month's update to our newsletter and website, but it does reflect NAI Hallmark Partners' ambition to move from good to great and best serve our customers.

On the new website, 'Properties' are now easier to search and are supported by comprehensive custom flyers, Google mapping and easy contact and social sharing options. Hallmark's corporate history, services and team are easily researched and current news is readily accessible through the Blog, Newsletter and popular social media channels. The website has been completely rebuilt on mainstay open source platform WordPress, featuring template themes and plugin architecture, and is managed in-house.

The updated newsletter format takes the best of prior concepts and adopts the design and navigation simplicity of the new website. Both the newsletter and website reflect the best design standards of the NAI Global international brand. To see the new website, visit

Todd Blake Starts New Chapter with Hallmark
(Left) Todd's cover on the Oct. issue of Void Magazine featuring Live For Today and the Best of 904. (Right) Todd and his wife Maja on the set of NBC's The Today Show with Matt Lauer.


I find the most satisfying rewards in life come from our deepest and most genuine struggles. At 18, I hardly found a stage-four cancer diagnosis a blessing. Five years later, I realize my illness has brought purpose to my life and set me on a path towards a fulfilling and meaningful contribution to this earth. 

Since graduating from the University of Florida in August, I have been incredibly honored to share my story with millions through The Today Show and more recently, Void Magazine. I am sincerely thankful for every new relationship and opportunity that has arisen from talking about overcoming my personal challenges.
