It is presented to an individual whose dedication to excellence has most profoundly enhanced the professional image of REALTORS®. The award recognizes the REALTOR® of the Year’s personal leadership and service qualities, applied not only to the real estate industry, but also to the promotion of civic, community and charitable causes. The award, while not granted for a specific business accomplishment, is earned by REALTORS® who have made a mark in the real estate industry.”
Tammy was also awarded The Professional Award. This award is the first of its kind for the Realtor® Association of Southwestern Illinois. Members of the association were each allowed one vote for the member they felt exemplified professionalism. Both awards were presented by the association at their annual awards ceremony.
Of these awards, Tammy said “These awards are a source of great pride and a huge surprise. I consider the past Realtor® of the Year award recipients to be my idols and mentors. I never imagined being part of that list. It is such an honor. I was equally surprised to be awarded The Professionalism Award. It has always been my goal to conduct my business with the utmost integrity and professionalism. It’s great to see those qualities are still appreciated and the Association found them important enough to recognize.”
