“Working with HomeSmart is an opportunity to offer agents the best platform for success in this ever changing industry,” Halick said. “HomeSmart has equipped our growing team with the tools and latest technology to provide our agents, clients and consumers the very best service service while simultaneously remaining ultra competitive regardless of where we are in the business cycle.”
