With the the NEW year only a hours old, we took the time to reflect on some notable events and highlights of our last year. Let us be a little nostalgic before we greet 2017 with open arms.
Those agents who earned honors in their professional endeavors deserve another shouthout. Sloan Sanders earned the title of Rookie of the Year in 2016 for the South Bay Association of REALTORS®.
Brittny Burford and Cheryle Ushkow got your vote, and were elected to the South Bay Association of REALTORS®. Cheryle is your 2017 President Elect and Brittny was named a member to the Board of Directors.
We covered Steve Goddard’s extensive real estate career in the local and international realm.
Along with our individual agent spotlights, we welcomed a large number of real estate professionals to our growing RE/MAX family and could not be more excited for what they bring to the table.
Volunteer Work & Community Service
We ran, we walked, we cheered from the sidelines, but most importantly we came together for some wonderful causes. Our agents participated in the Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The 5K walk took place on the Strand on November 12th.
For the third year in a row, RE/MAX Estate Properties formed a team in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. Last year we raised $11,000 and this year we matched our goal of $15,000, dedicating the funds to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
In October, we also celebrated and raised interest for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, spreading awareness for the Susan G. Komen organization which is dedicated to end the disease.
Launching a new writing series on our Blog, we covered some truly inspirational acts of selfless love performed by a handful of our agents. Some highlights were Elizabeth Marquart’s efforts to Save the Cheetah, Warder McKenzie’s summer medical service trip to Jamaica, Mary Voce-Underwood’s rescue spirit and work with Boston Buddies, and Ruben Magana’s creation of a “Little Heaven” on earth for the elderly and school children in San Joaquin. Their words speak more powerfully than our praise every could. We are grateful these agents work to inspire those around them every day.
When a home once belonging to Tina Turner and Ike hits the market, you better believe we are going to talk about it! The time capsule property was even featured in the classic movie What’s Love Got to Do with It. W
e also had a blast covering a LA Hot Properties listing: Christian Audigier’s home in Hancock Park. The French fashion designer was best known for brands like Von Dutch and Ed Hardy.
While we work hard, we had a great time celebrating this year. From the Holiday party at the new Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach to our Masquerade Ball, we created some wonderful memories that only 2017 can top!
