Honoring Dad for 40 years of service

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Metro agent with eXp Realty 56317

The Georgia Association of REALTORS has honored my Father, H. Ray Williams acknowledging 40 years as a REALTOR. Actually, he started selling real estate in 1963 with Jackson and King Realty and in 1967 joined the Cobb Board of REALTORS. He tells me that his dues were just $15 a year back then. His first year Dad sold over 25 properties with an average value of less than $20,000. Then in 1970 he founded Hagood and Williams Realty. Later in 1977 he formed Century 21 Hagood and Williams. Over 28 years ago, I began working along side Dad. We went on to form REMAX Realty Group on the northwest side of Atlanta in 1985. Today we have been blessed with over 100 associates in two different locations in Marietta and Cartersville, GA.

He is the quiet strength that I have leaned on. He has guided his family through thick and thin. We have weathered 17-18% interest rates. We have weathered the storm of getting to the closing table and no funding available. He and Mom raised three boys and three girls and now have several grandchildren. One thing about Dad is he knows his security in his faith through the days of storm.

I am proud of my Dad. We have honored him by setting up a special event with the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation. On March 6th, Dad will be locked up for lunch. Help us bail him out by honoring him for 40 years of service. If you would like to contribute, just click on this link:   MDAevent.   Thanks  Tony Williams

CONGRATULATIONS to your Dad and YOU!  How proud you must be of him.  It's a rare thing to have the same career for 40 years!  Your Dad sounds like a delightful man - be proud - cherish him always.

Thanks much
We are very proud of Dad and all he has done. One thing for sure, his greatest accomplishment... his kids. All very accomplished with great families.
