General sales manager named
President William A Hodrick Jr. recently announced the appointment of Kevin A Hodrick, associate broker, as the general sales manager for Prudential Hodrick Realty. Kevin will be responsible for managing, growing and developing the sales force in the company's Williamsport, Lock Haven, Lewisburg and Danville offices, according to a news release.
"During the past three years, Kevin has proved himself to be among the most proficient listing and selling sales professionals for our company and has demonstrated excellent leadership skills. He has embraced the use of current and emerging real estate technology and the tools available to him. I have no doubt that, given his background in training, management, and service his contributions to the company will be superlative," said William. "Our current sales staff enjoys interacting with him and I've received many compliments on his outstanding service from his clients."
"I'm really looking forward to my new role in the management of the company," said Kevin Hodrick. "I've watched the company grow under my father's leadership from a start-up operation in 1991 with only six agents in one office to our four office company with nearly 50 sales professionals today. As one of the dominant real estate companies in North Central Pennsylvania, this is an exciting opportunity for me." When asked what he sees coming in the future, Kevin said, "Our market has continued to be a strong one with plenty of low interest rate money available for buyers, a stable job market, and a good supply of homes for sale.
"Our company has embraced developing real estate technology to make our sales staff more proficient, and our clients tell us the really like the way we communicate with them and the information about the market that we are able to provide. With all that put together, I'd say Prudential Hodrick Realty is well positioned to gain market share and continue to improve our already outstanding 96-percent approval rating with our clients."
Addressing if this meant a changing of the guard for Prudential Hodrick Realty, William Hodrick said, "I think the best way to describe what Kevin and I have done is to call it a division of labor. Kevin is going to be responsible for the sales aspects of the company, while my responsibilities will focus on the company's marketing efforts, its financial management, the further expansion of the company, and special projects. I'll also continue to handle our corporate relocation business and the broker to broker referrals, our foreclosure and REO activities, and our rental management department. So my plate will be far from empty but not as overloaded as it has been in years gone by. This is definitely a divide and conquer strategy."
Hodrick also noted that he worked with his father, William Sr., for 10 years prior to his retirement and that Kevin is a third generation Realtor in the family. "It's really nice to see my son following in my footsteps and those of his grandfather. Third-generation Realtors are rare in this country and I have the utmost confidence that Kevin will be able to continue to grow the company long after I've stepped aside," said William.
Kevin Hodrick, the news release said, is a member of the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, and a member, director and Secretary of the West Branch Valley Association of Realtors. He holds the SRS designation and has won numerous national and company awards.
