We have decided to pause the next few weeks and highlight the faces of our team. Each of our staff members brings a unique and wonderful vision to our company. You may know them professionally already, but we would also like to take a moment for them to share about themselves. We are very fortunate to have such a great team of individuals.
We all know that Steve Fineberg is President and Broker of Steve Fineberg & Associates. Many of us have heard, "The Commercial Guy" jingle on the radio, or have had the opportunity to work alongside of him in real estate, or have served with him on one of the local boards in the community, AND all of us have probably seen a real estate sign on one of the busy streets in Northwest Arkansas with his name listed on top...
