JGRE Market Report: The Atlanta Office Market - A look Back at a Healthy 2016

JGRE Market Report 2

Bill_Mimi 3 3 The JGRE team grew by two when broker Bill Ward and his wife Sister welcomed a baby boy AND a baby girl on December 28, 2016! Baby Bill (pictured right) weighed in at 7 lbs 1 oz and Mimi 5 lbs 11 oz.
 5 kittens 
The JGRE team grew by another five when the office rescued 7-day-old kittens that had been born on the office roof.
