3 + 7 =

I have been with ALB for over 7 years. When I began my association with Matt Pashby and his small office staff, I immediately received professional support that goes beyond the normal agency/broker relationship. Because of this, I laser focused and for 4 of the past 7 years I was ALB’s number one top producing broker. Today, I no longer enjoy that number one honor but the continued and increased support from a much larger staff continues. It is an honor to associated with this outstanding agency. I look forward to many more years with ALB. David
