Matt Garner of the Woods Bros Realty Country Club Plaza office is the June Shining Star recipient.
His nomination read:
“Matt, while listening to KLIN talk radio, found a chance to get some good exposure for the Country Club office when Jack Mitchell of their morning show lost a bet. Jack was going to walk from North Star high school to Lincoln Southwest High School, in a route that was going right by the office. Matt rallied up the agents to raise more than $300 for the Lincoln Community Foundation for Jack to pull manager Thane Jensen in a wagon for one mile in front of their office. This was great exposure for the company and for the office, and I’m just thrilled that Matt took the initiative to pull this off.”
