MURFREESBORO, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to announce that Realtor Willie Mangrum has a goal to raise $500 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society MS Walk in Murfreesboro, Saturday April 26, 2008.  Mangrum is a Sales Associate based out of the company’s branch office at 2850 South Church Street in Murfreesboro.


“You can have everything that you want in life just as soon as you help enough other people get what they want,” said Willie.  “I can’t think of a better place to start than helping the folks in our community, our state and our country who suffer from MS.  Our goal for 2008 is a modest $500 and we aim to raise ten times that amount in 2009 by helping enough other people get what they want.”


Willie and team founder Gwen Cagle have participated in the Nashville MS walk for the past two years.  This year, having founded Team Willie@Crye-Leike Realtors they will be walking in the Murfreesboro MS Walk for the first time on Saturday April 26, 2008.


“The power of many is far greater than the power of a few,” said Willie.  “We encourage your support to the Willie@Crye-Leike Realtors Team and solicit your help in attaining this goal and we challenge you to join us in the mission of unsurpassed service to our fellow man.”


Willie is a licensed Affiliate Broker in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around Rutherford and Bedford counties.  He specializes in residential real estate sales with a focus on first time homebuyers and new home construction.  Willie is a member of the Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors (MTAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).


“Real estate is not a sales business, it’s a service business? a contact sport,” said Willie.  “As a real estate professional you must meet folks, make friends and provide service to them as if they were your family.  It’s really a simple idea, the Golden Rule, only better? treat others better than you expect to be treated.  It’s also the Crye-Leike credo, “A passion for providing unsurpassed service.”


In addition to helping buyers and sellers with Crye-Leike, Willie is the owner of HandyMangrum a light residential construction and remodeling company he started in 2005 in Murfreesboro.
