Platinum Top 50 Awards Ceremony - Austin TX at Shoal Crossing

I was announced as a Platinum Top 50 Finalist a couple of months ago and the award ceremony was yesterday at Shoal Crossing in Austin.

There are over 9000 Realtors in the Austin, TX area. To be a PT50 Finalist, they pick the top 150 agents. They don't just look at production of sales. They also look at your contribution to the real estate community and civil service in our community. They are looking for top people, not just top agents.

To make the Finalist group, it's a great honor! At the ceremony to see if I made the top 50, I was a little disappointed, but reminded that the top 150 agents are still an elite group of agents here in Austin. I left with a smile on my face and not a frown.

Platinum Top 50 has been in Austin for 3 years, and I've been on the Finalist list twice.  Third time's a charm, right?? I'll see about next year!
