"Cindy brings instant expertise to the Southern Crescent region of metro Atlanta and will strive to increase our presence in that region's commercial real estate market. With over 25 years real estate experience and her demonstrated leadership ability, Cindy Lester is the right choice for Prudential."

The CIPS network is comprised of 1,300 real estate professionals who have acquired special knowledge of the international market.

"I am very motivated to get Prudential's name on the map in the Southern Crescent region for commercial real estate," stated Ms. Lester. "The area is experiencing unprecedented growth as well as redevelopment. With the airport expansion of the fifth runway at Hartsfield, a host of new opportunities now exists in the area."

Cindy Lester will be based out of the Prudential Georgia Realty Commercial Services office at 6690 Roswell Road in Atlanta, but she foresees spending much of her time in her "rolling office."
