ATLANTA, GA - (January 13, 2009) - As the healthcare industry struggles with a growing physician shortage nationwide, a local real estate firm is working behind the scenes to help attract physicians to our community.

Harry Norman, Realtors recently achieved MD Preferred Real Estate Provider status and earned the honor of displaying the MD Preferred Services Medallion. This distinction, awarded to less than 100 national Realtors by US Medical Specialties, a national healthcare consulting firm, recognizes Harry Norman, Realtors’ experience and commitment to serving the unique needs and demands of today’s busy physician.

“MDPreferredRealEstate.com is a welcome port in the storm of uncertain markets,” remarks Karen McRae, the Relocation Director for Harry Norman, Realtors of Atlanta, Georgia. “We know that each physician visiting our community looks at several offers before signing a contract. The network allows us to partner more closely with our community hospitals and to provide needed real estate and relocation services to inbound physicians. It’s a win-win-win for the physician, the recruiting hospital and us.”
