Ben also received national recognition from NAI Global for his outstanding production in 2016, ranking as one of the top brokers internationally in the leading commercial real estate firm.

Senior investment broker Dail Longaker was awarded Top Individual Producer for the Columbia office, completing a notable portfolio investment sale valued at more than $20 million.

Top Leasing Agent in the Columbia office was awarded to Nick Stomski, SIOR. Stomski completed 64 transactions in 2016.

“Ben, Dail, Dexter, and Nick are invaluable members of our brokerage team,” said Bruce Harper, President and Broker-In-Charge for the Columbia office. “Because of their hard work and success, we are growing our transactional volume, year over year, and growing our footprint, not just in South Carolina but around the Southeast to better serve our expanding client base.”

We were pleased to recognize eight of our brokers as “Gold” producers (Ben Kelly, Dail Longaker, Dexter Rumsey, Patrick Palmer, Nick Stomski, Macon Lovelace, Roger Winn, and Thomas Boulware), six as “Silver” (Cam Kreps, Tombo Milliken, Tom Milliken, Paul Hartley, Rob Lapin, and Gerald Steele), and three as “Bronze” (Peyton Bryant, Jeff Hein, and David Ingle).
