I WON!!!!

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Premiere

Mark Fortson AwardEach year the agents in my office vote for the agent they believe exemplifies our office mission and values. The person is awarded with the Mark Fortson Award, in honor of an agent who passed away about 6 years ago. I knew Mark and he was a really nice person, a very fitting example for this award.

Well to my surprise, I WON the award this year! And not only that, I found out that I had come in close to winning for several years. What an honor. It is really affirming to be recognized by your peers. Thank you to the great agents in my office.

And may 2011 be the best year ever!!!

Congratulations on the award and recognition by your peers. I won a similar award last year at my company and dedicated it to an agent who is no longer with us who inspired and influenced me and my career.

I'm sure the reward has just begun!  When someone is recognized in this fashion it's for a reason!  Clients, ally realtors, and friends will continue to flock to you because of your great representation of what this business truly is supposed to exemplify.  Congrats!  I'm sure you deserve it!
