Chicago real estate brokerage firm @properties recently held its annual @awards ceremony recognizing outstanding sales achievement in 2010. The awards highlighted another strong performance by @properties, which was both the No. 1 residential brokerage firm in the city of Chicago and the fastest growing brokerage firm on the North Shore for the second consecutive year.
More than 120 agents were honored in more than 30 categories including: Rookie of the Year; Most Improved Agent; Best Team Player; Development Division Outstanding Achievement; and Top Producer for Closed Listings, Buyer Brokerage and Overall Closed Volume.
@properties also presented its prestigious Road to the Rolex award to sales associates who achieved $10 million or more in annual closed sales volume for their first time as an @properties agent. This year there were a record 15 Road to the Rolex winners: Kevin Wood, Michael Thomas, the Beth Wexler/Joey Gault team, Peter Cummins, Margaret Baczkowski, Mary Haight, Milena Birov, the John Baylor/Barbara Shields team, James Gramata, the Ryan Gosset/Emily Gosset/Nadine Shehaiber team, Alan Meyerowitz, Eric Chaplik, Monica Childs, Dennis Huyck and Scott Zelkin. Each agent or team receives a Rolex watch.
According to tradition @properties also presented a Rolex to one outstanding staff member. This year’s recipient was Matt Dollinger, @properties’ vice president of strategic development. Dollinger spearheads technology initiatives and provides performance coaching and business planning to @properties’ agents.
“We couldn’t be more proud of the performance our agents turned in for 2010 given the adverse market conditions,” said Thaddeus Wong, co-founder of @properties.
