There are many Real Estate Agents (REAs) and Real Estate Negotiators (RENs) who are dedicated in their service to their customers. I think this is worth celebrating and letting the world know about it. The best buyers deserve to be served by the best in the profession too and the best in the real estate profession deserves to be recognised and honoured because of their dedication and professionalism. Last year, I could feel the magic as soon as winners of each category of the NREA were announced. This year, the National Real Estate Awards (NREA) is back. Get to know about it as below.
