"It is well known that physicians place a very high value on community and quality of life issues," said Byers, MD Preferred Realtor®. "Physicians expect the highest quality of service, and they need an agent that has the ability to navigate them through the real estate market, and get the job done successfully and professionally. The MD Preferred Real Estate Network allows us to partner more closely with local hospitals and medical practices and be the resource of choice for all their real estate needs."

Michael O'Malley, Project Manager for the MD Preferred Real Estate Network, explained, "Physicians represent a very distinct consumer group with strong financial power, high net worth and career stability. Today's doctor is extremely busy and the legal, real estate, mortgage and relocation needs of physicians require special attention; but the reward for the preferred professionals who provide these services is a deeply loyal client base in a challenging economic environment."
