In 2008, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate and Realogy partnered together to take their amazing brand and make it the best real estate network for which independent brokerages could be a part. For almost a decade, Metro Brokers has been an integral part of that Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate family. During a recent event, the President and CEO of BHGRE Metro Brokers, Kevin Levent, received special recognition from the national level.
On March 13th, BHGRE Metro Brokers held its annual Awards Ceremony at the Cobb Galleria. The event was attended by over 800 agents throughout the vast Metro Brokers network from all over metro Atlanta and north Georgia. BHGRE President and CEO, Sherry Chris, was in attendance as a guest speaker and award presenter. Chris gave a rousing speech about business inspiration and recognized BHGRE Metro Brokers and specific agents for charitable efforts with the organization, MetroGives.
Chris then recognized Levent with the Founder’s Circle PAIGE Award for 10 years of Excellence. PAIGE is an acronym used by BHGRE that stands for passion, authenticity, innovation, growth, and excellence. Chris explained that as a valued colleague and a friend, Levent personifies all the PAIGE attributes. Since joining BHGRE almost 10 years ago, she said that Levent’s contribution to the brand has been invaluable.
“I am truly happy to be giving you this award today. You deserve it,” said Chris.
Metro Brokers was started in 1979 and Levent became President and CEO in 1996. Under his leadership, the company grew to 26 real estate offices with over 2,200 agents all over the state of Georgia. In 2009, Levent joined the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brand and the affiliation has taken BHGRE Metro Brokers to new heights. As a brand, BHGRE has expanded its reach from not only the US but is has brokerages in Canada and recently expanded to Jamaica.
