SAAR recognizes leading young agents with
annual 40 Under 40 awards for 2018
The Scottsdale Area Association of Realtors® recognize 40 members chosen to receive
achievement awards from SAAR and Young Professionals Network.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (April 26, 2018) – The Scottsdale Area Association of Realtors® named 40 of its youngest members to be recognized in 2018 and to watch beyond that. A celebration in their honor is planned for May 9.
SAAR and its Young Professionals Network (YPN) asked all young members of the Association to consider themselves as leading Realtors®, submit their profiles based on the criteria set forth and to be amongst the recognition group.
The Association adopted this recognition program and event several years ago to celebrate and support the accomplishments and careers of its youngest members. After receiving many highly qualified applications, the selection committee thoroughly examined each one looking for the most well-rounded agents and found 40 individuals who were equally strong in all categories. Their final selections were based on business success, professional leadership, community engagement and industry involvement.
“We were quite pleased with the pool of candidates this year,” says SAAR CEO Rebecca Grossman, “but it’s really no surprise given the level of success amongst all our dedicated young members.”
SAAR President Becca Linnig points out that “these young professionals are the future of our organization, of real estate and the formation of our communities. I’m impressed by their accomplishments so far and look forward to watching and supporting their future growth.”
The award winners will be recognized at a celebratory event at SAAR headquarters / Venue 8600 (8600 E Anderson Dr) on May 9 from 6 – 10 p.m., and all are welcome to attend. Opportunities to purchase tickets will continue until the week of the event or room capacity permits.
