RE/MAX affiliates from offices across the seven-county metro Chicago real estate market recently earned career awards from RE/MAX, the leading international real estate organization. The awards were based on the agents’ continued success in the metropolitan Chicago real estate market, one of the most competitive arenas in the nation for real estate professionals.
RE/MAX affiliates are eligible to receive awards marking important professional milestones during their career with RE/MAX. These career honors include the Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement Award and Circle of Legends awards, which are distinct from the honors that agents can earn each year for their annual sales production.
Recently, four agents received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, which goes to those who have been part of the worldwide RE/MAX network for at least seven years and have completed 1,000 or more real estate transactions during that time.
Membership in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame was conferred on 36 others. Hall of Fame inductees have closed more than 350 transactions while affiliated with RE/MAX.
