DICKSON, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS Affiliate Broker Michael L. Gilliland Sr. is the recipient of an Education Achievement Award from the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors (GNAR).  He is based out of the company’s Dickson Tennessee branch office located at 1904 Highway 46 South In Dickson.


To qualify for the recognition, Gilliland completed more than 45 hours of real estate continuing education in 2007.  He is a firm believer in education as a means to offering his clients and colleagues the best service possible.


“The education process does not stop with the licensing exam,” said Gilliland.  “The real estate business is an ever-changing business on a daily, weekly and yearly basis.  Every agent has a responsibility not only to his or her buyers and sellers but also to the rest of the real estate community as well.”


Gilliland is a licensed Affiliate Broker in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around Dickson, Hickman, Humphreys and Cheatham counties.  He specializes in residential real estate sales.


“The real estate business is a challenge and every challenge should be met with intensity, drive and a dedication to providing the best possible service to those that you are committed to working with and for,” said Gilliland.  “That can only be done properly and effectively by insuring that you have a complete understanding of the product that you are providing.  Ignorance of the laws, regulations and policies is no excuse.  Mediocrity just isn’t going to cut it.”


Gilliland is a member of the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors (GNAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).


Prior to obtaining his Affiliate Broker’s license and joining Crye-Leike, Gilliland was employed as a full time pilot with Petroleum Helicopters, Inc.
