2020 Agent Awards

Because we are unable to gather, our 2020 Awards Celebration looked a little different this year. While we normally all get dressed in our cocktail attire to dance the night away, we had to recognize our agents in new ways this year. It was a reminder of the complicated year, but also of how much our company and agents thrived in such uncertain times. As our President and Co-Founder, Maurice Humphries said, “I know I’m preaching to the choir, but we are truly fortunate to work in an industry that is basic to life – we deal in shelter! We deal in the spaces where folks live and raise their families; the places where people work and invest. We deal in the spaces where people felt secure when times were insecure.”

During our Virtual celebration, we celebrated our successes of donating to over 31 organizations, providing meals to our health care heroes with Frontline Foods, hosting two blood drives, conducting a successful canned food drive with Community Foodbank of Central Alabama and collecting Christmas gifts with Toys for Tots.

We also honored the fantastic successes of our agents. We recognized those whose production skyrocketed over the last year, industry newcomers who are Realtors to watch, our top producers in each office and companywide + more! Below is a list of all our award winners, we are so very proud of each and every one of them!
