In an interview, Lyla Gambow, CPM, SVP of management services for Transwestern, talked about the company. She said Transwestern's corporate culture is a huge strength and is one of teamwork, honesty and integrity. They have a mission, a purpose and goals that are readily defined and achievable.

This empowers their team members to freely focus on clients and goals. The benefits of belonging to IREM and being an AMO accredited firm are very important to Transwestern.
