If you were to give an “outstanding achievement” award to somebody in the real estate industry, who would it be and why?
Century 21 Dabbs South
Niki M. Igel, loan officer with National City Mortgage, is my choice to receive an “outstanding achievement” award because she provides excellent service and support in helping to acquire mortgages for clients.
In fact, she goes beyond the call of duty in supporting Realtors with various real estate challenges and finds creative ways to solve problems, including providing updated information on funding, seminars, workshops and incentives to help reach qualified clients. Most importantly, she is a warm, caring person with good marketing skills.
Prudential Preferred Properties
Sharon Fowler at Prudential Preferred Properties in Libertyville would be my choice to receive an “outstanding achievement” award. She is my business partner and I respect many aspects of her character and business practices.
She demonstrates integrity both personally and professionally, and has determination to give back to her community. Her drive is centered on excellence in customer service and satisfaction, and she implements new technologies with a “no fear” attitude at lightening speed, which benefits both our clients and building our business.
Sarah Jane Elder Lyons
Maureen Mohling from Coldwell Banker Winnetka North has been in the industry and a pillar of the North Shore real estate market for close to 25 years. She is the epitome of integrity, hard work, leadership, mentorship and friendship. Her ability to handle it all with style and grace makes her a truly admirable managing broker.

An “outstanding achievement” award should go out to the developers and designers that have the foresight and sagacity to present “green” projects that are considered to be environmentally friendly to consumers.
Builders and perspective buyers hoping to enter the green market have to do their homework to make sound economic decisions. Green doesn’t mean cheap. With few prior projects to compare with, the element of risk to the developer can be daunting. As we see today, newer green developments are hoping to ride the crest of the green wave.
