High Ranking Achieved
SALISBURY — Sperry Van Ness-Miller Commercial Real Estate is on the rise, ranking as the No. 4 office in 2014, up a spot from 2013.
The firm grabbed the No. 4 spot out of 190 SVN offices internationally. Office rankings are based on Gross Commission Income (GCI). Brent Miller, Managing Director and Broker, attributes the rise to an exceptional group of Advisors and Staff.
According to Miller, the SVN team, “ensures that our client’s interests are always our top priority, period. Our culture of excitement, teamwork and success allows us to better assist our clients in achieving their goals.”
Diane Danielson, Chief Operating Officer of Sperry Van Ness International, said, “When we talk about our top offices, we always include SVN-Miller because for them, it’s more than just posting outstanding numbers in every category from sales to leasing to property management. They do all that, but their involvement in their community and in building an inclusive office sets them apart. They are the true meaning of an SVN top office.”
In addition to the ranking, seven SVN-Miller advisors received top producer awards.
FRUITLAND – Apple Discount Drugs has announced the certification of Diabetes Educator John Motsko as a Blue Star Diabetes Trainer at Apple Discount Drugs.
“Innovation and technology continues to drastically change healthcare on a daily basis,” said Apple Discount Drugs President Jeff Sherr. “It is our responsibility to keep up with these changes to better serve our patients. Having John certified as a BlueStar trainer is one of the many ways Apple Discount Drugs is providing guidance to our diabetic community. Our goal is to help people with diabetes take control of the disease and live a better quality of life.”
BlueStar is a mobile app used to improve the life of people with Type 2 Diabetes. The application offers personalized guidance and tools to help patients track and manage their diabetes. The application gives personalized messages and guidance and therefore requires a prescription from the patient’s provider that John can easily arrange for each patient. Users can track blood glucose levels, medications, diet and exercise all in one convenient place and access them across all devices. BlueStar also lets patients review past entries, which can help the patient identify patterns of high and low blood glucose values over time.
“The trouble for people with diabetes is that there is so much information, different resources, products and services out there it becomes difficult and overwhelming to keep track of it all and make sense of what is really needed,” said Motsko. “This app allows us as educators make comparisons between daily activities, blood sugar readings and medication compliance and make sure nothing is missing. The most amazing part of this program is that the largest group of users are those ages 60 to 70 years old. Very encouraging for our senior population.”
