Dodds is devoted to the professional growth of brokerage recruits and to high-level sales production.  

“We have tried to build a culture of good people to make coming to work every day enjoyable,” he said. 

Paul Abbott, a Coldwell Banker Canada Vice-President, Franchise Development, said the award has gone to a natural leader whose skills have been allowed to shine as a broker-owner. 

Congratulations to Greg and the whole team at Coldwell Banker Dawnflight,” said Abbott. This award recognizes the good things that happen for a business when everyone knows the direction they are going, and everyone is committed to the work needed to get there. That’s what leadership does.”
