Your Team at Hills, Renaut, Homen & Hughes
One of the most important assets of our firm is its personality. From a broad range of individuals, we extend expertise and professional, personal attention to assure quality services to specific client needs. As most of you are aware, Bob Homen passed away in April and Rich Hughes passed in November 2016. We are at a loss, not just as a firm, but as a family as well. Bob joined the company in 1968, and Rich in 1975. They were an integral part of Hills, Renaut, Homen & Hughes and will be deeply missed. Other changes have taken place in the past year as well. Two familiar faces and voices on the phone have retired recently. Irene Rocha, the voice that welcomed you to the company, retired in May 2015. Glenda Parsley, who had a supporting role with us for over 50 years, retired in October 2016.
