Staten Island Realtors Celebrate Their Top Producers of 2020
Staten Island Board of Realtors hosts its annual awards event and trade show online
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – The Staten Island Board of Realtors® (SIBOR) celebrated its best-achieving members of 2020 as “Top Producers” during a virtual gathering held May 20. Designated as Staten Island’s “Realtor Day,” the event included an awards ceremony followed by an interactive online trade show featuring renowned real estate professional and technical expert Jeremias “JMAN” Maneiro as master of ceremonies.
The Top Producer designations are awarded annually to associate brokers and sales associates for exceptional listing and selling activity.
“It goes without saying that 2020 was an unprecedented year with the Covid-19 pandemic shutting down the industry from March through July. The real estate industry was forced to adopt new technologies and procedures on the fly. These folks turned the proverbial lemon into lemonade. I congratulate them,” said Sandy Krueger, CEO of SIBOR.
Among the newly recognized honorees are Judith McKenna, Kawing Chiu, Joseph Haskell and Valerie Bartolone. Each is entering SIBOR’s Top Producer Club Hall of Fame, which requires being a Top Producer for a minimum of 10 consecutive years. Hui Chen received the SIBOR Rising Star Award, given each year to the Top Producer honoree with the least amount of time in the industry.
