Annual Awards

Did you miss the live stream for the 82nd Annual Awards & Circle of Excellence - A Roaring 20's Watch Party? You can watch it now!

We'd like to thank our presenters, 2019 President Robert Kozlowski and 2020 President Allison Van der Veer, and none of this would have been possible without the ingenuity and creativity of our GIAR board member and Watch Party producer, Michael Heiser.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to submit a nomination this year. We'd like to congratulate everyone that was nominated since this year we had a full field of quality nominees all of whom were so deserving. The winners were...

Our Circle of Excellence Committee, Awards Committee, and Young Professionals Network worked so hard to make our 82nd Annual Awards a memorable occasion. While circumstances required us to divert some of those plans, we'll be back next year with an opportunity to make up for all the fun and fellowship we missed in 2020.

In these challenging times, we are all navigating through uncertainty for ourselves, our loved ones, and our real estate community. We hope you are staying healthy and safe, and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon!
