“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Fontaine Team did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal.  “Their efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 963,000 REALTORS nationwide.”
