Gardner was selected not only for his highly successful real estate career, but also for his contributions to the community.

Through the foundation he created in his grandmother’s honor, his outreach program supports many organizations, not the least of which is a cottage built to house 32 homeless women at a time,” said Paul Boomsma, LeadingRE President and CEO. “Whether it’s through business or through philanthropy, Glenn is devoted to helping people create a life they love, and it is a true privilege to recognize him with our Leadership Award.”
