Member 2 Member #ShoutOut to @certamainline from @RifeRealEstate #BCAproud

Mem to Mem (1)

Member-to-Member “Shout Out” 
by Nicole Marcum Rife, Rife Real Estate Group  
This post is part of an ongoing series, learn more!



My team and I would like to recognize the professionalism and workmanship of the owners and team members of CertaPro of the Main Line. Chris Druquer and Andrea Fanfera have been a wonderful addition to the preferred vendor services our clients experience when buying and selling. Personally, they have painted two of our offices now, as we continue to grow and expand into larger offices. CertaPro worked on a weekend, without request, to complete our new office space as to not disrupt our daily business. The neatest part has been our white board wall; if you don’t have one, you need one!! They are just the greatest things when running a meeting – no more paper easels needed. Huge #ShoutOut and thank you to Chris, Andrea and the entire team at CertaPro of the Main Line.
