CHICAGO (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
RE/MAX has announced that 88 brokers at its offices across northern Illinois have earned career honors. RE/MAX brokers are eligible for four career awards, each marking an important professional milestone while they are affiliated with RE/MAX. The awards, in ascending order of significance are: the Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement, Circle of Legends and Luminary of Distinction.
Jane Lee of RE/MAX Top Performers, Lake Bluff, was named a Luminary of Distinction, the most prestigious of these awards. Recipients are those individuals who have earned $20 million in sales commissions and have completed 20 years with the RE/MAX network. Lee is one of only three brokers in northern Illinois to have received this honor.
Two brokers became members of the Circle of Legends, which recognizes an elite group of top brokers in the RE/MAX global network representing less than 0.5 percent of all RE/MAX sales associates. To enter the Circle of Legends, a broker must have been with RE/MAX for at least 10 years and have earned more than $10 million in commissions during that time.
The Lifetime Achievement Award, which goes to those who have been part of the worldwide RE/MAX network for at least seven years and have earned more than $3 million in gross commissions during that time, was presented to 21 brokers in northern Illinois.
