REALTORS® Association recognizes long service members and top producers at gala dinner #yeg #yegre

Edmonton, March 10, 2012: The REALTORS® Association of Edmonton presented awards to members who had reached a significant milestone in their membership or who had excelled in the area of property sales in the past year. The awards were presented at the gala REALTORS® Ball held Friday, March 9 at the Westin Hotel in Edmonton.


Long term service awards in 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50 year categories were given to 70 members and represent 2,115 years of service to the Association and the real estate industry. (See list attached.)


“These members have made real estate sales a career and represent the best in the industry,” said REALTORS® Association of Edmonton President Doug Singleton. “Many of them are now serving families into the third and fourth generation. They have built the foundation of the industry that supports 3,200 members locally and generates annual real estate sales of over seven billion dollars.”


Top sales achievers were presented a Medallion which represents real estate sales through the Multiple Listing Service® in 2011 of almost $6.7 million worth of sales each. REALTORS® could also qualify if they participated in 42 or more real estate transactions last year. This group of 176 REALTORS® represents the top five percent of local members based on their sales performance. Eleven teams were also recognized for their total sales performance which was at least twice the achievement of individual members.


“Medallion recipients are the hard-working members who get up every morning ready, willing and able to sell a property on behalf of their clients,” said Singleton. “But that effort does not diminish the efforts of our other 3,000 members who are also here when life happens for their clients.”
