December 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
HOUSTON, TX. - Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors' Larry Littlejohn was recently honored with the Strike Force Award from the Texas Association of Realtors for his enthusiasm and involvement in local politics.

Littlejohn, an agent with the Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors Katy office, is one of only 75 people in the state of Texas to receive the recognition. This was the inaugural year for the Strike Force Award.

The long-time Realtor said he is honored to be recognized for doing work he has enjoyed for many years. "Political involvement is a way to protect the interests of our industry and our business," Littlejohn said.

During a recent election in the Katy area, Littlejohn was extremely active in hosting events, placing signage and interviewing candidates on behalf of area Realtors. When Realtors decide if they are going to support a candidate, they look at the candidate's stance on issues such as private property rights, homeowners' associations, property insurance and appraisal issues, according to Littlejohn.

Craig Chick, director of Public Affairs for the Texas Association of Realtors, said Littlejohn is exactly the kind of person the organization had in mind when creating the award. "The Strike Force Award is something we do to recognize those who go above and beyond in our election activities and other grassroots initiatives."

Littlejohn has been in the real estate business since 1993 and with Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors since 1996.

Independently owned and operated, Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors became an affiliate of the Prudential Real Estate Network in 2000. Since then, it has earned a host of honors, including, most recently, receiving the company's eighth consecutive Gibraltar Circle Award, which recognizes the top 50 companies in the Prudential Real Estate Network; and ranking #46 nationally by Real Trends in the Top 100 Brokers by closed transactions in 2006. According to the Houston Association of Realtors Ranking Report through September 2007, the firm has closed more units and dollar volume of sales and has more listings than any other broker in Houston. Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors was founded in Houston in 1963 as Gary Greene, Realtors.
