“Serving our customers and our communities through leadership and commitment is at the core of ERA Real Estate’s operating principles,” said Charlie Young, president and CEO of ERA Franchise Systems LLC. “The Circle of Light for Community Leadership Award recognizes companies that embrace this philosophy through community service and charitable works that greatly impact the areas where they work and live. Ron, Carol, Jen and their team have long been committed to serving their local communities, as well as business excellence, and we are proud to have them as part of our network.
