We at Holladay would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of the holiday, we have a special blog post featuring input from employees from all over Holladay about what we are thankful for this year. Enjoy!

John Phair“In 2014, I  am thankful for the great partnership and all the partners that run Holladay Properties, including our newest partner, Paul Phair; the return of a robust economy in nearly all of the cities we do business in that is allowing us to focus more on the future than the past; and last, but not least, the people I get to work with in each of our offices every day, who treat me, themselves, and each other with a respect and courtesy that makes the Holladay culture a success and encourages me to come to work excited every day.”

Thomas Gibson“As we enter the holidays it is a good time to reflect on what we should be truly thankful for in our lives. As I approach my 65th year of life I am most thankful that I have been blessed with good health and that has allowed me to live a full and productive life.

On a professional basis, I am very grateful for the many loyal and hardworking employees who allow us to provide high quality professional services to our company, our tenants, and our clients. The many relationships that I have enjoyed over the past few years have been rewarding personally and professionally.

On a recent trip with a client remarked on importance of the services were that we perform and expressed their appreciation to me. That level of appreciation was humbling and made me thankful to have so many wonderful employees that communicate our core values and beliefs to our customers allowing us to achieve the highest satisfaction possible.

In Nashville, we are doubly blessed because we are living in a city that is enjoying a great renaissance with tremendous economic and economic growth and a vibrant real estate economy. Our state and city have benefited from excellent political leadership over the past decade, and the economic results are self-evident.

I truly hope that all our clients, friends, and employees will have a joyous Thanksgiving and take pause to be thankful for the many blessings in their lives.”
