SPOTLIGHT ON PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY TO HIGHLIGHT SPECIAL OFFICES. . . As a feature in the monthly "Spotlight On Homes" supplement, Heidi LaMere of the Gazette selects an office every month that goes above and beyond the call of duty for a FREE 3/4 page ad highlighting their community involvement. Two Prince George's County offices, Long & Foster in Bowie and Century 21 Home Center, have already been featured. The articles outline the community efforts REALTOR® offices are involved in. We are now looking for other offices to be spotlighted. Nominations must be received at the Gazette. What is your office doing?
