Another agent, Elizabeth Lownes stated, “Prudential is imprinted in the minds of consumers, and has an impeccable reputation in the industry.” It was this feeling that led to Lownes’ decision to serve her clients as a member of Prudential PenFed Realty in the new Howard County office. “We see the new Columbia, Maryland office as a great resource and fit for the Howard County community,” said Terri Bracciale, Regional Vice President, Prudential PenFed Realty. “Prudential PenFed Realty has grown over 800% since 2010 with 100% year-over-year growth in Howard County.
