Drinkwater takes the place of Scott Hendricks, who served as qualifying broker since January 2008, after Hendricks decided to take a journey to a different career path in teaching high school agriscience for Zion Chapel.

“I have enjoyed my time as qualifying broker and will continue to work with Landmark Realty in sales, but I’m excited to start this new chapter,”Hendricks  said.

Landmark Realty owner Earl Ellis said Hendricks will continue to work part time with the company, but he had to step down from the qualifying broker position because of the time it demands.

“Scott has been with this company since 1998, and I’m glad he will continue to do so. He has made great relationships in this community, and I know his customers wouldn’t want to see him go,” Ellis said. “He has done a great job as qualifying broker, and I know Adam will serve Landmark Realty well in his new role.”

Each real estate company has only one qualifying broker. Though Drinkwater has been an associate broker for nearly three years, he will now serve as the principal broker for the company, supervising all the sales personnel and brokers of the office and overseeing all activities and transactions of licenses working under Landmark Realty.

“I look forward to taking on this new task as qualifying broker. I will continue to sell houses and manage properties as I have since I started my career at Landmark Realty, but this job will give me new and exciting responsibilities,” Drinkwater said.

In addition to his role as broker, Drinkwater also serves as the 2010 President of the Board of REALTORS and is a member of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and serves on the Executive Committee as First Vice Chairman. He is president-elect of the Troy Rotary Club.

He lives in Troy with his wife Kristy Ellis Drinkwater and his children Lola and Joe.

Ellis said though the company is undergoing changes, its customers can expect the same great business.

“We just want the public to know they can expect the same great service from the same great people at Landmark Realty. We’ll continue to provide the services we always have, and of course, we’ll still sell Pike County ‘piece by piece.’”
