Thomas R. Wilkins, CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates announced the promoting of Lynn W. Wilklow, AB from the position of Sales Manager to Vice President/Company Recruiter and General Manager of the Wilkins’ Bushkill office.
Said Wilkins, “Lynn has been with the Wilkins organization since the old Dingmans Ferry days over 12 years ago.” “She actually started her real estate career with us as a Salesperson in the Route 739 office. If I recall she was Rookie of the Year.” chuckled Wilkins.
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates at the height of the market had 14 offices throughout the Poconos including a Route 739 Wilkins & Associates office in Dingmans Ferry. The Dingmans Ferry office was Wilkins’ first entry into the Pike County real estate market. The Agents who opened the office dubbed the “original 5” and under the leadership of Christine A. Wilkins, three of the original 5 remain with the company which includes Wilklow.
Wilklow, who started as her career with the Wilkins organization, worked her way through the company. Wilklow was awarded Rookie of the Year, won numerous awards as a Salesperson, took the required courses, passed the State exam and become an Associate Broker with Wilkins. Wilklow then moved into the Management sector assisting BHG in re-entering the Pike county market place by opening the current office located at the Historic Upper Mill in Milford, PA.
A year ago, Wilklow accepted the position of Sales Manager for the Bushkill office. Since that time, she has grown the Sales division by recruiting agents for the office, assisted in developing the online marketing which is still being used extensively today. This promotion has deemed Wilklow qualified to act as a Recruiter for the entire company.
Wilklow received the title Vice President/Company Recruiter and remains General Manager of the Bushkill office. Wilklow will answer to Christine A. Wilkins, Executive V.P./General Manager.
Said Christine A. Wilkins, “Lynn is a team player, through and through. I’ve never seen her say ‘no’ to helping any of her agents further their career by assisting them one on one, through webinars, individual office meetings and simply being there when the Agent need her.”
Said Wilklow, “I’m ecstatic over the promotion. As our Mission Statement says, ‘We love what we do and we do what we love’. I enjoy seeing the smile on an agent’s face after their first sale or rental just as much as I enjoy seeing my seasoned agent close that one transaction we simply thought was never going to make it to the closing table.” Wilklow further stated.
“I have certain personal goals that I am looking to meet and exceed, and I think that this promotion is going to give me the push that I’m looking for to drive myself over and above my own expectations with the company.”
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates have four offices and are currently pursuing a location in the Lake Harmony area. Their staff includes 80+ Realtors and is hoping, by year end, to achieve their goal of 90 fulltime Realtors.
