“It’s such an honor to know that others, especially my colleagues, recognize the hard work and dedication I devote to my charitable work. Mostly, what winning this award means to me is that a huge audience of real estate professionals will notice the names of organizations I am passionate about and become involved in charitable efforts in their own lives with people and nonprofits they feel strongly about! To me, it means more people doing good for others and our community!”
