achieved all financial and service goals set by the organization.

customer service that is being offered at the property. She serves as an
inspirational example of what service possibilities exist in the
operation and is often sought out to help fulfill any requests owners,
guests, and colleagues have with the goal of leaving a lasting
impression on all those she encounters.


Bluegreen believes that by taking care of their neighbors, owners,
guests and community, the company will become more engaged and

that would allow owners and guests to consciously give back to their
vacationing home community. To date, BluegreenCares efforts have aided
