Prudential PenFed Realty (PFR) put its best foot forward at the Maryland Association of REALTOR® (MAR) Conference held on September 9-11 at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, Md. This year’s event was sponsored by PenFed and MRIS. Several of our real estate professionals and staff were recognized for their efforts throughout the year and at the event.
“All of us at Prudential PenFed Realty are very proud of the sales professionals and employees that were recognized for their efforts and their service. Giving back in the community and being a responsible corporate citizen is a high priority at our firm; and these individuals have demonstrated that commitment by helping kids with cancer, supporting military heroes, and improving the real estate industry as a whole. I am grateful to be able to work with these amazing award winners,” said Kevin Wiles, president of the mid-Atlantic region at Prudential Penfed Realty.
Prudential PenFed Realty’s booth at the event was themed “Bringing It Home,” and featured baseball themed items, music, décor, and a photographer specializing in custom baseball backgrounds. Everyone walked away with their PRF bag complete with “peanuts and crackerjacks.” The booth really knocked it out of the park and won first place for Most Creative Booth at the MAR Conference.
The Cecil County Board of Realtors (CCBOR) won the Maryland Association of Realtors (MAR) Community Action and REALTOR® Excellence (CARE) award. This award is given to local associations recognizing achievements in community service and charitable actions. Linda McKinnon and Nancy Simpers, REALTORS® with Prudential PenFed Realty’s Elkton office, accepted the award on behalf of CCBOR.
“Linda and Nancy are phenomenal volunteers and outstanding real estate agents. We are so proud of their dedication to the projects they work on and for all of the time and energy they have spent helping others less fortunate,” said Paul Wildey, managing broker of Prudential PenFed Realty’s Elkton office.
Linda McKinnon was presented with MAR’s Community Service Award at the conference. This award honors individual REALTOR® members who give unselfishly of their time to assist the communities in which they live. Linda McKinnon was also presented with CCBOR’s Community Service Award on July 18 of this year.
“I am so honored to have received this award. It is a wonderful feeling to help others. In ordinary life we don’t realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that gratitude in life is richer than anything,” said McKinnon.
