CBV announces senior staff changes
Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty, Inc. (CBVR) has announced the appointment of two senior staff members.
Mona Gardella is now Chief Operating Officer for CBVR, and will oversee the day-to-day operations of the company, with the exceptions of accounting and property management. Gardella previously served as vice president for CBVR, successfully managing and increasing the market share for the Fleming Island, Oakleaf and Avondale offices.
“Mona has a unique combination of empathy and drive that enables her to consistently succeed,” said Pete Dalton, broker/owner of CBVR. “She has a strong desire to see everyone achieve their goals, and has earned the respect and admiration of our agents and staff. Under her leadership, our agents will have an innovative, agent-centric collaborator who will be their biggest champion and cheerleader.”
Gardella joined CBVR as a real estate agent in 2010, and was promoted to Director of Market Development for Fleming Island in 2015. Since that time, CBVR’s Fleming Island office consistently ranks as the number one residential real estate brokerage in Clay County. In 2018, she took on the Director of Market Development role for Avondale, which has steadily increased in volume and size.
Kim Knapp, consistently one of CBVR’s top producers, has been appointed manager for the Fleming Island and Oakleaf offices. Knapp, who has spent her entire career with Vanguard Realty, has chosen to end a highly successful sales career in order to assume the management role. A much sought-after speaker and educator, Knapp is a founder of the successful RE Bar Camp program and currently serves as president of the Jacksonville MLS and is a member of NEFAR’s board of directors.
“Kim will bring an extensive amount of knowledge and enthusiasm to the Fleming Island and Oakleaf offices that she has brought to her team, and the thousands of agents she has taught,” said Dalton. “Her common sense approach and systems orientation will undoubtedly assist the Fleming Island and Oakleaf agents in surpassing their sales goals.”
