"I think it was around 2002 when after being in the real estate business for 7 years with the same company, the brokerage I was with decided to transition and merge with another company. It was an opportunity for me to explore my options. When I met with Carla and Tom, it became apparent to me that Brinkoetter was where I needed to be. They had a vision and a genuine excitement about the business and were focused on the community which is something that matched my ideals perfectly. They were sincere about wanting me to grow and flourish and they remain so today. I am proud to be a part of their team."

"I've been at Brinkoetter since 1988. That's a lot of years to spend at one place. Why do I continue to stay at Brinkoetter? Well, for one, I would never leave this family. The agents who work here love each other and God. The other reason is our bosses and staff. They stay current with the market and technology, which means I get to also! The atmosphere here is supportive without interference. That has worked for me for a long time!!!”   #stayinguntilIretire
