Award Winning Service

Many people don’t get to know what’s behind the surface of their real estate agent. They see dedicated professionals who have great expertise; agents who work hard to find the right dream house for their clients; and agents who market the daylights out of a home to get it sold. But there’s much more than meets the eye with some REALTORS®. They are not likely to tell you how much they do for others, but they have big hearts and they put their time and money where it counts. Our company is full of great agents and this month we are introducing a few for their dedication to community service.

Jean Krieger and Bonnie Manross came from Ohio, with years of experience, to join our company in 2005. They settled right in and became entrenched in The Villages area market, getting involved with community volunteering from the get-go. For years they have sponsored softball teams in the area, and Jean has been volunteering in and sponsoring the “Lily” Golf tournament for several years in a row.

The Lily Tournament is a very successful golf tournament that is held every year in The Villages to raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness and to provide support for caregivers.  The tournament was founded by Deb Schlofman in 2001 when her mother, Lily, passed away after suffering for 7 years with Alzheimer’s. Deb also passed away in 2009 and the event is carried on by volunteers to honor Deb and her Mom. To date, the group of volunteers has raised over $285,800 for the cause.


Jean has done so much that recently she was honored with the “Helping Hand” award, for her years of service. Only one of these awards is handed out every year and it is a well-deserved honor for Jean.  Jean and Bonnie are valued team members in the office and are always willing to help others. They make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network out of each one of their closings. But they probably never tell anyone.

They also have an appreciation party each year for their sphere of influence where they look forward to seeing everyone. They plan weeks in advance and it gives them great joy to show their appreciation, because that’s just who they are.

They take incredible care with each and every client. If you have done business with these wonderful agents, then you understand what I’m saying.

Jean and Bonnie, we salute you and we thank you for being an integral part of the RE/MAX Premier Realty family.
