In 1936 when Gladys Manion was living in an apartment in the Moorlands she decided to get her real estate license and open her own rental agency – initially just renting out units in her building. Following her success, her friends decided to get their real estate license as well and came to work under her company, The Manion Rental Service.

Manion, Gladys Manion Real Estate is bigger and more productive than ever, but the company’s values have remained the same for over 80 years – Clients Come First.
