CENTURY 21 Larry Miller Realty Agent ANGIE ABRAHAM Impressed Daughter NICHELLE PROTHO with Valuable Service Provided by Professional Realtors
May 12, 2010 (AUGUSTA, GEORGIA) – Nichelle Protho began her Early childhood with memories from her Mother. Nichelle was focused and head strong with leadership capabilities. Nichelle, couldn’t wait to get schools supplies so she could write notes and create stories and poems. She would invite friends over to watch puppet shows that she wrote directed and acted. She knew she wanted to be in some faucet of the Film Industry at very young age. She starred in her first TV Show in California and received her first pay check which lead to her being a member of the Children’s Acting Guild when she was about 13 years old. When we attended movie theaters together she would not let us leave until all the credits were shown and everyone would be gone out of the theater and she would say "My Name Will Be Up There On The Screen One Day In The Credits". Always being a multi tasked daughter she would be a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, The Beta Club, Girl Scouts of America, The English Club and tennis, bowling ,soccer and Gymnastics team and also loved to go on trips to snow ski in High School when in Europe. An avid swimmer and jet skier Nichelle stays active and loves her family. In college she was a Member of The National Society of Engineers. She still loves to travel and was baptized in the Catholic Church she understands that "God is driving the car she is just a passenger".
And Nichelle, who is currently the co-executive producer of online content for the hit CBS drama "Ghost Whisperer", still appreciates Angie Abraham’s work ethic and professional service. "My mother and I talk about real estate constantly. I have always enjoyed hearing her war stories about the world of real estate," explains Ms. Protho. On our show "Ghost Whisperer", one of our lead characters---played by Emmy winner Camryn Manheim---is a real estate agent as well, so my mother and I started thinking 2
that it would be great if I produced an online promo about the virtues of home ownership which are evident in the show". And that’s exactly what Nichelle did.
The online video---featuring "Ghost Whisperer" star Jennifer Love Hewitt, Manheim, and other cast members---espouses the "Home is where the heart is" theme and is now available for viewing on Face book, (C21LMR page?), Tumblr, MySpace, Twitter and
