Nicholas Colagiovanni Achieves a Career Milestone!!

Baird & Warner Ted Guarnero Recently, a colleague of mine, Nicholas Colagiovanni, was named part of the Top 1000 real estate professionals in the United States for 2011. The honor recognizes individual real estate agents based on their total amount of closed transaction volume from the year prior and is a milestone that Nicholas and our entire team should be proud of.
