The real estate industry is competitive. Realtors are off the chart competitive.
Last night, several hundred competitors gathered at the Hilton Hotel to honor and celebrate those Realtors who had an outstanding 2015. The Multi-Million Dollar Club of the Memphis Area Association of Realtors recognizes those Realtors who sold at least $3,000,000 of real estate or closed a minimum of 30 transactions in the past year.
This years MMDC President, Carol Lott with Crye-Leike Realtors, emceed the program along with help from John Linthicum, Mike Lawhead and Jon Albright. Dozens of Realtors were inducted as first, second, third, fourth and multi-year members of the MMDC. These Realtors represented many of the firms in our market including, Keller Williams, Remax, Crye-Leike, Marx-Bensdorf and Fast Track Realty. Linda Allad with Fast Track Realty earned her fourth year membership in the MMDC. Linda celebrated the evening with her ever amusing husband, Shabir Allad. Two agents with Fast Track Realty earned their Life Membership in the MMDC, Monica Mauricio and Dustie Zvolanek. Life memberships are the highest achievement of the MMDC. Both of these ladies are true professionals and are dedicated to their clients and customers. As I heard their names called and watched them walk across the stage to receive their awards, I was beyond proud. I realized I was blessed, honored and humbled to work with such an amazing group of people. But so much more than co-workers, these ladies are family. And so are their spouses and children. I’m proud to call them my friends and family.
Congratulations to everyone who was inducted to the MMDC last night. A special thanks goes out to the 2015-16 Board of the MMDC for putting together such a memorable evening. You did it Shannan McWaters!!
