New! The Icon Award
The honor is awarded to a REALTOR® who has made a significant mark on the profession of real estate in the locality where he or she works. The Nominee’s name is recognizable to the community at large and is synonymous with exemplary ethical behavior and knowledgeable and compassionate service to clients and customers. The individual is highly respected by the REALTOR® community. The Nominee is generous with his or her time supporting community organizations/projects/programs. Several may be awarded in 2018, the inaugural year, after that, just one a year, if appropriate. A nominee may be active or retired.
The Spirit Award recipient motivates others, through enthusiasm and participation, to attend events. The recipient may serve on a committee or just answers the call for help. The recipient is reliable and shows up! An eligible recipient can also be a more reserved person who quietly takes on tasks- transporting props to events, participating in the set-up, tear down and clean up without fanfare.
