The Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® invites nominations of current GBAR members for the 2016 REALTOR® Spirit Award. This award has been created to recognize agents and brokers who, through their everyday actions, consistently demonstrate the ideals that embody the very meaning of the term “REALTOR®”.
Defining REALTOR® Spirit: The ideal nominee is an unsung hero within the real estate profession who supports other industry practitioners through actions, words and cooperation. Recipients are known for their strong professional ethics, a cooperative spirit, and willingness to share business knowledge, industry experience and personal time to help others succeed in their career. Honorees may be accomplished sales agents, managers or business owners, but are often better known and respected for their optimism and enthusiasm, integrity and work ethic, and civic involvement, charitable contributions, and leadership in the local business community.
Award Eligibility: To be eligible, individuals must be a REALTOR® or Designated REALTOR® in good standing with the association and state licensing authority, and must have held membership in the REALTOR® organization for a minimum of three years and membership in GBAR/GBREB for at least one year at the time of nomination.
