Congrats to the Union Street Media clients who took home awards at the 2012 Vermont Association of Realtors Convention!
We’ve been working with Vermont REALTORS for over ten years, and we are always impressed by the caliber of their real estate work, as well as their dedication to improving the communities they work in. In what can be a competitive and cutthroat business, it’s refreshing to see the evident camaraderie, commitment and spirit of giving back that these REALTORS share. Since I have the pleasure of working with many of them as clients, it was a treat to be able to check in with the majority of them at last week’s annual Vermont Association of REALTORS convention.
Sitting at the awards luncheon, I realized that I was clapping for a disproportionate number of our clients as various VAR honors were called out. While it didn’t surprise me given who our clients are, I wanted to step back for a moment and just acknowledge some of our Vermont real estate clients (to whom we owe our own success as a company) for their achievements.
Of note on the podium with REALTOR of the Year nods were:
Addison County: Amey Ryan of IPJ Real Estate in Middlebury
Central Vermont: Martha Lange of Century 21 Jack in Montpelier
Orleans County: Lyell Reed of Century 21 Farm and Forest in Derby
Windsor County: Eric Johnston of Lang McLaughry Spera in Woodstock
Ken Libby of Stowe Realty and kenlibby.com in Stowe, was not only Lamoille County REALTOR of the Year, but he was also surprised to be Vermont’s REALTOR of the Year. Ken is a long-term Union Street Media client, and while he may not have a lot of time to work on his website, he always has time to work tirelessly for the various groups he’s involved with. It’s hard to keep track of all of the things Ken has worked on. He’s the past Stowe Police Chief, has been active in youth athletics, serves as the Chair of countless organizational boards, maintains a high level of activity in the local and national real estate arenas.
Congratulations go out to each of our honored clients, and to their offices!
Despite tough economic times and natural disasters like Tropical Storm Irene, this is a vibrant and strong local real estate community and it’s refreshing to see our clients doing well. We’re glad to be able to be a part of their success, and look forward to seeing even more of our clients’ names in lights across every state we service.
