It’s awards season.
Every time you turn around, there’s someone getting an Oscar, an Emmy, a Tony, Grammy, People’s Choice. There are award shows for award shows. And they all have something in common – there is always a winner and a lot of runner ups who will strive even harder for the coveted prize next year.
Like these sought-after honors, the world of real estate has its own awards season. This time of year a lot of the agencies, including my agency Keyes, does their annual awards banquet for the top producers in the company. Their so called “red carpet” is filled with the best of the best, the agents that you have only heard about but never met. You may have showed their properties or saw their names in the MLS. You perhaps talked to them over and over on the phone and only got to meet at the closing table. Some are legends while others are working their way up the pedestal. It’s a star-studded event that might leave a lot of new agents “star struck” in the end.
