I'm honored

by Mayes Harris Team

On February 10, 2012 all Re/Max real estate agents and executives from North and South Carolina gathered at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte for the CELEBRATE EXCELLENCE at the Re/Max Carolinas Region Awards Gala.  I was awarded 5th place for Gross Commissions Individual for North Carolina 2011 and Platinum Club for 2011.  I am the number one agent in Charlotte office of Re/Max Metro.  I’m so happy and proud, and was so touched to receive this honor.

Here are some photos from that evening:

Children's Miracle Network

by Mayes Harris Team

One of my gifts to sellers and buyers, when they close on a home, is a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network, in their name.  Let me tell you a little about this wonderful charity.  Started in 1983, its goals are to help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals and also keeping those funds in the local community in which they were raised.  Our local hospital is the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.  Children’s Miracle Network provides comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids each year – whether they be suffering from asthma or broken bones to birth defects and cancer.  The charity’s most recognizable symbol is its red and yellow balloon icon, which goes very nicely with the RE/Max balloon logo, pictured below. 


Mayes Harris Realty is proud to be part of RE/Max, and a contributor to the Children’s Miracle Network.  For more information, go to:
