Drena Hollingsworth Earns Prestigious Recognition
Drena Hollingsworth, owner of Hollingsworth Realty, named "30 Under 30."
[USPRwire, Wed May 30 2007] Drena Hollingsworth, owner of Hollingsworth Realty Group in Cobb County, was recently named to the prestigious “30 Under 30” by the National Association of Realtors. Hollingsworth, along with the other 29 finalists, will be profiled in REALTOR® Magazine’s June 2007 issue. Readers will gain insight into how the 30 impressive entrepreneurs built their business and helped shape the real estate industry.
“Receiving the ‘30 Under 30’ award has reassured me that I am taking the right steps to continually move myself forward and that I will eventually reach the level of success I would like to achieve,” Hollingsworth said. “One main reason the company received this award is due to our guarantees. We guarantee our days on market, pricing, communication with the client, negotiation amount and that the home will sell.”
Hollingsworth was chosen from a record number of national applicants to be selected for the prestigious honor.
Hollingsworth, who grew up in Calhoun, attended the University of Georgia and graduated with a degree in marketing in 2001. She received her real estate license in 2002 after attending the Georgia Institute of Real Estate. She worked with Harry Norman for four years and started her own business, Hollingsworth Realty-Group in 2006.
Hollingsworth started her own company at the age of 27. While most of her peers would have felt it too risky to go out on their own, Hollingsworth never doubted. All of her former clients at Harry Norman went with her to Hollingsworth Realty Group, and she increased her production by more than $2 million in the first year of business. Hollingsworth sells homes predominately in Cobb and Fulton counties, but will sell in Decatur and the perimeter area of DeKalb County.
“I was extremely honored to receive this award,” said Hollingsworth. “I had been saving all of the past “30 under 30” Realtor magazines for the past several years. It is the only national recognition for young people in our industry and it had been a goal of mine to make the list since I started selling real estate.”
Hollingsworth has numerous industry and professional affiliations which include: certified residential specialist; accredited buyer representative; President of Delta Gamma Alumni Chapter in Atlanta; Vistage; National Association of Women’s Business Owners; Founder of her BNI chapter (Business Networking International); and she plays ALTA tennis.
