RISMedia Now Accepting Nominations for 2023 Real Estate Rookie of the Year Award
In an effort to honor real estate agents who are new to the business yet achieving extraordinary results, RISMedia has opened nominations for its second annual Real Estate Rookie of the Year award, sponsored by industry education leader, Colibri Real Estate. The deadline to nominate an agent to become the 2023 Real Estate Rookie of the Year is June 5.
RISMedia’s Real Estate Rookie of the Year award recognizes new agents for their accomplishments in 2022. Agents who received their license no earlier than Jan. 1, 2021, are eligible to participate in this year’s contest. Nominees will be considered based on their 2022 residential sales volume and transaction data, investment in professional education, technology prowess and community involvement. Any member of the real estate industry—including agents, brokers, MLS and association executives, coaches, service providers and more—may nominate an agent to become the 2023 Real Estate Rookie of the Year. Nominate as many agents as you would like, and agents may also nominate themselves.
“Starting out in the residential real estate business over the past couple of years—during one of the industry’s most atypical and challenging times on record—was not for the faint of heart,” says RISMedia Founder & CEO John Featherston. “Recognizing new-agent success during these unprecedented times is critical in order to put forth shining examples of professionalism, resilience and success in any market. RISMedia’s Real Estate Rookie of the Year annual award program helps elevate our industry’s reputation, for the benefit of those who work within it as well as for the consumers they serve.”
This year’s Rookie of the Year contest will recognize five regional winners in addition to one national award recipient. RISMedia will announce the top five finalists per five major U.S. regions later this summer, and the five regional winners will be announced in September. The national 2023 Real Estate Rookie of the Year will be revealed and awarded during RISMedia’s Power Broker Reception & Dinner this November in Anaheim, California, during the annual NAR NXT Conference & Expo.
“We are delighted to again partner with RISMedia to recognize new agents who have demonstrated they are thriving in their careers and, as such, making a difference in their communities and in their profession,” says Jennifer Dixson Hoff, Colibri’s GM, Professional Portfolio and Partnerships. “What we learned from the experience last year is that it is still a great time to start a career in real estate. These new agents are the next generation within the real estate profession, and we couldn’t be prouder to highlight their accomplishments and results.”
