Last Thursday at The Country Club of the Crystal Coast, the Carteret County Association of REALTORS® held their Annual Awards Banquet. It was a beautiful evening and a great way for the entire dedicated group of real estate professionals to celebrate all of their hard-work throughout 2017. Dinner and cocktails were served early in the evening, followed by the awards presentation and the evening was rounded out with dancing.
Platinum Level Offices
For the 2nd year in a row, both our Emerald Isle & Atlantic Beach Offices were awarded with the Platinum Level status, which is the highest attainable achievement for an office. To qualify, an office must have had at least 170 sides or more than $40 million in Total Sales Volume. Both of our office locations finished in the Top 5 of all offices that are active members of the regional association. Our Emerald Isle Office represented clients on 293.5 sides, with over $88 million in volume for an average Sale Price of over $300,000. Atlantic Beach had one of their strongest years ever, producing almost $59.5 million in 206 sides, for an average Sold Price of $288,583. Combined, the 2 offices accounted for over 8% of the total Volume produced in our area.
Kitch Ayre- a consistent Top Producer within not only our company, but also our county- was presented as a Gold Level agent through our local REALTOR® association. She produced over $15.8 million in 2017 and represented clients in over 45 sides. With an average Sales price over $350,000, Kitch is well known as a true professional in the local luxury real estate market. Congratulations Kitch on another outstanding year to be proud of!
Lorna Riggs- Silver Level Status
Lorna Riggs had an incredible year, producing over $12 million in 28.5 sides for an average Sales Price over $425,000. These are numbers to be proud of, and proves that Lorna’s dedication to serving her clients’ best interested is well worth it. We are so happy to have Lorna and her husband Ray as part of our Bluewater family. They are true team players and always searching for new and innovative ways to provide the most excellent real estate service.
Ron Webb- Rookie Production Award
Ron Webb, one of the newest additions to our Bluewater family, was pleasantly surprised to hear his name called as Rookie of the Year. He was responsible for over $2.5 million in Sales Volume- which led the way for newly licensed agents that joined the local association within the last 18 months. Ron marks the 3rd consecutive Rookie of the Year from Bluewater offices- which is a great example in the training and goal setting programs available to our new agents. Laina Collins, of our Emerald Isle office & Jim Bailey, from Atlantic Beach are the other two previous Rookie of the Year Award recipients.
Congratulations to all award winners on another great year and Thank You to the hardworking team and volunteers that represents our local association office. Also thank you to Luis Robles of Main St. Studios for providing us the photos from this event!
