Giving Thanks – Reflections from the Milesbrand Team
There are so many things to be thankful for, including good friends, favorite meals, a smile from a child, the great outdoors and, of course, great clients and our talented staff. As we start the Thanksgiving holidays this week, we reflect on the year to date. Although the real estate market has been full of ups and downs and constant change, we have enjoyed creating fantastic outcomes for our homebuilder and developer clients. We are thankful to our clients for putting their trust in our process and helping us create award-winning work with excellent returns on investment.
Each team member took a moment to reflect and share what they are thankful for. Here they are.
