SCOTTSDALE (May 19, 2017) – Last month, the Young Professionals Network at the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS® (SAAR) rolled out the red carpet to honor 40 young professionals in the industry who have made great strides in the local real estate market and communities.
The evening of celebration took place at the The Venue Scottsdale – Virtue Vice in old town Scottsdale and began with the 40 Under 40 honorees stepping out of vehicles (sometimes limousines) onto a red carpet to be welcomed by their family and colleagues in the field as well as other members of SAAR. The captured images from the event were courtesy of local photographer Gary Helland and their submitted photos and brief bios are housed on the SAAR website and can be read by following the links below.
The YPN committee at SAAR went through a rigorous process to select 40 individuals out of more than 100 nominations they received. Once nominated, candidates were asked to complete the application process themselves and share why they feel their accomplishments excelled beyond that of their peers. Submissions were scrutinized and selections were made based on production, community involvement, dedication to the industry and position or unique selling proposition. Of course, candidates had to be under the age of 40 (as of April 27) and in good standing with the association.
“It takes time, drive and determination to obtain your real estate license,” states Rebecca Grossman, chief executive officer at SAAR. “It’s by far quite an amazing accomplishment to be at the top of your market with sells and community involvement, which is why we like to celebrate their accomplishments,” she adds.
Equally strong in the categories listed above, the 40 Under 40 recipients are listed here (alphabetically by first name) with links to their photos and brief bios. REALTORS® at SAAR and beyond look forward to watching the continuation of their successful careers in real estate.
