+ Jake Pettingell seals a real estate deal
Pettingell & Son?
Perhaps that’s premature, but Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate broker associate Roger Pettingell gave his son Jake, 9, an early business lesson April 24, during Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day.
Jake began the day with a walk-through of a Beachplace unit his dad listed and sold (buyers are Jim and Martha Hildreth), then headed to Kathryn Carr’s office to help oversee the closing. The Pettingell team’s lunch appointment was at the Southeastern Guide Dogs graduation ceremony — so that Jake could learn the importance of giving back.
