Mr. Wolthuis has also been a long-time member of the Broker’s Council, a group of large independent and nationally branded real estate brokers from diverse markets around the country; while he is not a broker/owner or manager, his consulting expertise and exposure to a variety of markets, company cultures and brands on a regular basis has made him a welcome member of this group.
