OCTOBER 21, 2015 – ANAHEIM, CA — Carrington Real Estate Services, LLC (Carrington), a corporately-owned and operated national brokerage, today announced that it has promoted Tammy Powell and Russ Laggan to regional vice presidents. Powell, the former Orland Park, Illinois office leader, will oversee the operations for Carrington’s northeast region, while Laggan, the former Tampa, Florida office leader, will manage the brokerage’s southeast region operations. In these positions, both Powell and Laggan will be responsible for growing the network, coaching managers to help train agents to maximize their earning potential year after year.

“In today’s market agents need and deserve strong leadership. Carrington Real Estate Services is committed to continuing to develop and expand our agent support teams to offer our sales professionals access to great leadership, like Tammy and Russ,” said Wendy Forsythe, Executive Vice President and Head of Global Operations for the full-service national real estate brokerage. “At Carrington, we believe in leading by example, and as a company created and run by entrepreneurs, leadership at every level is fostered from within. We all share a passion for what real estate professionals do at a local market level, and we are committed to helping our agents take their careers to the next level.”

Powell, with over 17 years of real estate industry experience, joined Carrington in 2012 and opened the brokerage’s Orland Park office. Under her leadership, that office grew to over 66 agents in just three years, and set a record for consistently closing more than 60 sales per month. Laggan’s real estate career began in Detroit in 2005. By 2008, Laggan was managing a successful real estate office in Tampa, which combined forces with Carrington earlier this year to leverage the brand and resources of the national brokerage.

Powell and Laggan join Carrington’s existing West Coast Regional Vice President, Larry White. White joined Carrington in 2011 as manager of the Nevada area. He led the successful and consistent growth of the company throughout the state before being promoted to his current position. Add together the experience White, Powell and Laggan bring to Carrington, and it is no wonder our agents are set up for their best year ever in 2016.
