As a family-owned business, Hodnett Cooper takes pride in celebrating the individuals that make contribute to our success every day. Our founder, Roy Hodnett, continually emphasizes the importance of a positive attitude.

Starting this year, Hodnett Cooper Real Estate will be presenting the “Roy Hodnett Positive Person Award” to one team member in the Brunswick office and one team member in the St. Simons Island office. The award can be give for any number of reasons that fall under the “positive person” umbrella. For example: helping a fellow employee with a difficult situation, participating in a charitable event, rescuing a dog, covering the front desk for a sick employee or taking food to a family in need. The award winner is the person that never says “no” when someone needs assistance, or the person that always makes you smile. The award recipient chooses the next month’s recipient based on those criteria.

Last month’s recipients, Winnie Skarpalezos and Rachel Fitzpatrick nominated and awarded February’s recipients:

Becky Canter – in the words of Winnie, “Becky is always supportive and encouraging. When she sees you in the hall she wants to know how your showing went, how your day is going. She is always smiling and doing things for others, including making special days with her granddaughter. She recently helped with a Habitat for Humanity build. Overall, She is just a positive person to be around.”

Janice Ronson – Rachel Fitzpatrick describes why she nominated Janice Ronson for the award, “Janice is ALWAYS so positive! She comes in every day with a smile on her face, ready to learn something new. I love that she asks tons of questions to better herself and improve her business. I love that she speaks highly of everyone and never gets caught up in negative chatter. She is optimistic about her buyers and sellers and is a cheerleader for everyone who works in this office.”
