Dale Conner, ERA Town & Campus Realty – 2018 Rookie of the Year
“I am very purpose-driven and highly value building relationships through everything I do, so it is a huge honor to be recognized by ERA Real Estate for this award,” says Conner. “Mastering ERA’s tools and resources has been fundamental in helping me grow my business, and it is a privilege to utilize those resources to serve others in my community by helping them find and secure the perfect home.”
“From the moment he began his real estate career, Dale was determined to be successful,” says Jerome Nettles, broker/owner of ERA Town & Campus Realty. “He immediately immersed himself in the ERA tools and products, taking his knowledge and putting it into practice with good old-fashioned hard work and people skills, resulting in him becoming a top 10 producer across our entire MLS. He is a 100-percent participant in community outreach events and never misses a chance to give back. He has even garnered attention from several other brokers, but has remained with ERA because of the training, tools and platform for success offered to him by the brand.”
