Congratulations to the following members who received special recognition at the annual Installation Reception.
The Awards Committee's unanimous choice for PGCAR'S REALTOR® of the Year for 2004 is CONNIE STOMMEL. Connie has demonstrated business accomplishment, faithfulness to the Code of Ethics and civic and community involvement. Connie has recently opened her own Company, Exit 1 Stop Realty. Connie has also participated on the State and National level to a degree which makes her truly worth of the title "REALTOR® OF THE YEAR". We are so proud to congratulate Connie on receiving this honor.
The Board of Directors has authorized the President to annually select an individual who through past service to the Association is worthy of receipt of the Distinguished Service Award. This year, Connie selected to honor a very special REALTOR® to receive the Distinguished Service Award. This member has served this Association unselfishly for many years. He has served as Chairman of many of our Association Committees and has served as a Director and Secretary/Treasurer of the Association. He is always willing to take on any task to benefit the Association and this year serves as the Chair of the Community Service/Cultural Diversity Committee. This year's Distinguished Service Award was presented to a member who truly deserves special recognition, ART GREENE.
