Celebrating a year of accomplishments, Texas REALTORS® recognized the MetroTex Association of REALTORS® with the Education Program of the Year award during its winter meetings earlier this month. The award was given in recognition of an outstanding local-association education program that meets member needs and increases the quality of professionalism in the real estate industry.
The event that was recognized, the MetroTex Broker Series, was planned to fulfill a need for a comprehensive series to assist REALTORS® who were independent Brokers thinking about expanding their brokerage and for REALTORS® contemplating becoming Brokers. The program objective gave brokers the tools they needed to run a successful brokerage and develop successful agents while providing a roadmap for running a business that follows legal guidelines and ethical practices.
According to Roxie Glenn, MetroTex Director of Professional Development, it was important that participants learn from their peers own experience and expertise to achieve their goals.
“The Broker Series is unique in that it was written by Brokers for Brokers,” said Glenn. “That enabled an expert level of insight to be shared so that a common goal of raising the level of knowledge for all of our Broker members is met.”
Special thanks to the instructors for the series: Cindy Baas, Patricia Feager, Cheri Feuerbacher, Marion Napoleon, Kristen Price, Lori Solecki, and Krishna Upadhyaya.
MetroTex has been recognized twelve times with the Education Program of the Year Award and takes great pride in its high level of Education. According to Bill Jordan, MetroTex President, this year’s award was special because of its importance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“2020 was a challenging year for our Association and our industry with virtual learning during the pandemic,” said Jordan. “This awards speaks volumes to the dedication of our staff and our instructors to create and deliver such a high level of professional development. It also speaks highly of our membership for their commitment to further education to improve the overall professionalism of our industry.”
