Power of HPW

Page 1

A LOCAL, FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESS Growing up in rural Wilson, N.C., my mother taught me the important lessons of working hard, respecting others and doing what you said you were going to do. I started Howard Perry and Walston in 1972 with those qualities in mind and have remained true to them.

Today, Howard Perry and Walston is the leading residential real estate agency in the area and we have partnered with Coldwell Banker, the number one real estate company in the world. We have created an accomplished leadership team and associated with outstanding real estate agents, who have set a standard in the industry for superior service and professionalism. Our goal has always been to empower our sales team by providing the most effective training, technology, and support they need to excel in the industry and live out our principles in the communities we serve. We invest heavily in our team, and they, in turn, invest in their valued clients. I know that a home is one of the biggest investments you will make in life and I want to thank you for considering our agents and family of companies to be a part of this process, it is a privilege we do not take lightly. I wish you the very best throughout your real estate journey and welcome the opportunity to connect with you in the future. As all of our real estate agents know, I’m only a call away and would be pleased to hear from you.

Don Walston Founder and Chairman
