)-- RE/MAX affiliates from offices in Naperville and Chicago 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.
Marlene Granacki of RE/MAX Exclusive Properties, 2951 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, which goes to agents 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.
Jill Clark, an agent with RE/MAX of Naperville, 1200 Iroquois Commons, Naperville, Ill., and Sherell Sands of RE/MAX Signature, 2901 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago, were named to the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. Membership in the Hall of Fame goes to those who have closed more than 350 transactions while affiliated with RE/MAX.
Across the RE/MAX Northern Illinois region, 122 RE/MAX affiliates have earned career awards so far in 2010.
