Update on Celebration of Excellence Awards Ceremony

The Board of Directors has made the difficult but necessary decision to move the Celebration of Excellence awards ceremony to a virtual format.
Award recipients will be announced on Thursday, March 11, in a recorded video that will be freely accessible to members and Preferred Partners.
We understand that many members will be disappointed to miss the pomp and camaraderie of the annual event. We also hope members appreciate efforts to avoid risks associated with a large in-person event while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to plague our community.


Awards of Excellence

The Sumner REALTORS® Awards of Excellence program recognizes members who excel in real estate sales and association involvement. While most real estate companies have their own internal awards for sales performance, the association awards showcase members who outperform their peers across the two-county region and actively participate in association programs and events.

Awards of Excellence and REALTOR® of the Year applications and nominations are closed.
