Meet Ralph

Advocate’s Featured Employee

Ralph joined Advocate in November 2022 as a Sales Representative in Dallas.

“I love working closely with homeowners and seeing them become comfortable with working with not only me but Advocate. The enlightened look in homeowners’ eyes when they find out we met their needs creates one of the best feelings for sales representatives.”

One great surprise about working here at Advocate is the wow factor. It was a huge culture shock for me when I started working here, this company really takes the ‘work hard, play hard’ mentality to heart, and I absolutely love it.
