Back in December, I was at the Austin Music Hall for an awards ceremony. I played it down. I didn't tell but a couple of people. I didn't think it was a big deal. I still consider myself "new" to Austin, so to be up for some type of award, I figured it was either a mistake or they had a small pool of people to pick from.
The award I'm talking about is the Platinum Top 50 award. The PT50 is not all about production, but also about commitment to the real estate industry as well as outside contributions. Do you have real estate designations? But also what committees do you sit on that helps the community and the industry?
As I mentioned, I didn't tell but a couple of people that I was up for this award, not thinking much of it. But then at the ceremony, they announced that over 1000 people out of almost 9000 agents in the Austin TX market were looked at. Over 1000 people? And I was picked to be in the PT50 top 150 Finalist group? Now it started to sink in!! My legs started shaking, and I was thinking, How in the world did I get into this group of 150 people? I also started thinking about how this was a big deal, and that I couldn't believe I didn't tell anyone.
Well, the ironic thing is that even though I didn't think too much about winning, I was then disappointed when I didn't make the top 50. I mean, I didn't think I had a chance, but was still disappointed. Probably one reason why it's mid-February and I'm just not talking about it even though it was in December. I'm honored to be a Finalist for the PT50.
I know I posted the video before, but I never mentioned exactly what it was. This is a video that the Platinum Top 50 people put together for all Finalists for release. Even though I'm not part of the actual top 50, to be in the top 150 in all of Central Texas, mainly Austin, is a great honor. For those who missed it, here's the Austin Rocks video about why Austin is doing so well in Recession Recovery. Jobs, we've got 'em!!
