April 28, 2018 Move for a Cause!
Have you ever wanted to pour more into your community and make more of an impact? That was our goal is in establishing an Annual Family Fun Run on April 28 at Paul Boorman Trail benefiting Neal McCoy’s East Texas Angel Network. We joined forces with those businesses in our community who feel the same way – who want to make a difference - with 100% of the proceeds benefiting terminally ill children and their families right here in East Texas – and we think that is a cause worth fighting for. Over $14,000 was raised for these children and their families.

Santa Claus, Longview Police Department SWAT Team and Kilgore ISD Orchestras even made it for the party! We collected a ton of toys for East Texas Angel Network, Buckner CFS East Texas & Truman W Smith Children Care Center. There truly is more joy in giving than in receiving.

We have been so blessed this year and are extremely grateful for our clients who become part of our family.

September Super Star 2016 Congratulations to Amy Yoder, Realtor - Julie Woods & Associates for being our Super Star of September! When we think of someone who exemplifies the quintessential buyer’s agent, we can't help but think of Amy. She is always warm, happy, ready to lend expertise or advice, but not too pushy. She notices the details – not just of properties, but of things that buyers may mention in passing as a priority or concern to them. She also notices the details of contracts and has on more than one occasion protected her clients by utilizing this gift of hers! This lady is not only an advocate for her clients, but for her coworkers as well. She looks out for the people in our office and thinks about them even when she is not here. We can tell by her actions that she asks herself, "How can I help make their day better? How can I make them feel encouraged?"
September 20, 2016 We sure do ❤️ our clients! Today we had a super fun day treating those who treat us so well! Thank you bunches to Citizens National Bank, Kilgore National Bank, Austin Bank, East Texas Professional Credit Union, Regions Bank and Central Title Co/Kilgore Ofc. A big shout out as well to Memi D's Drive Thru for providing a yummy lunch! We appreciate all that you do for us! 💜💙❤️💚💛
