Each day is different since we are involved in client relationships, business development, financial planning, and, of course, mentoring and working with associates to reach their full potential. I will miss the many people with whom I have worked closely over the years.”
“I am confident that I am leaving the company in very capable hands and I know the company will continue to grow and prosper.” Freeland will continue to work on special projects for the company till the end of this year.

Danner says, “As her business partner, I have had the distinct privilege of working very closely with Christy and I will miss our day-to-day dialogue and group effort. She is a true professional who has been dedicated to driving optimum property performance, providing the best possible service to clients and ensuring our associates have the tools they need to succeed.”
Smith adds, “I have learned a great deal from her in the last few years that I have been associated with her and Riverstone and she has helped prepare all of the senior executives by being a great mentor and teacher of her trade. She will be sorely missed, and we wish her great health and happiness in this next chapter of her life.”
