They received multiple industry honors, including being inducted into the RE/MAX International Hall of Fame and earning the title of Top-Producing Team for the Michael Saunders & Company Lakewood Ranch Office in 2007. Both were involved in numerous organizations throughout the Gulf Coast that focus on community well-being, leisure and encouragement of the arts.
