"HouseMaster franchisees are dedicated to customer service and are individuals that continue to raise the bar in the industry. HouseMaster is proud to consider Mike as a part of our family and celebrate this milestone with him."

"It was very gratifying to be recognized for my five-year anniversary at the conference this year," D'Amore said. "As the real estate market intensifies, the services we offer at HouseMaster are more important than ever in helping both sellers and buyers make educated real estate decisions. I am proud to be celebrating this milestone with the HouseMaster family."
