The SIBOR Top Producer award is an annual recognition given to real estate agents who have shown outstanding results in terms of the number of transactions closed throughout the year. Winners have demonstrated exceptional skills in communication, negotiation, market knowledge, and client satisfaction, all of which are vital to success in the real estate industry.

“Today we celebrate the achievements of the SIBOR Top Producer award winners, including individuals and teams, the Rising Star award winner, and the two Hall of Fame recipients. We’re proud of them all,” said Rosanne La Fata, president of SIBOR. “These individuals and teams have consistently demonstrated excellence in the real estate industry, maintaining high standards of professionalism and ethics, and building lasting relationships with their clients.”

Among the honored Realtors were SIBOR Top Producer Hall of Famemembers Gail Sweeney and Anthony Ragucci, who were acknowledged for receiving the Top Producer Award for 20 years in a row.

Also presented, were the Top Producer Team awards led by Platinum Level recipient Richmond 1st Team of Homes R Us Realty.

Lindong Huang received the SIBOR Rising Star Award, given each year to the Top Producer honoree with the least amount of time in the real estate industry. Huang has closed an impressive number of transactions since becoming a Realtor subscriber of the Staten Island Multiple Listing Service in March 2022.

“Lindong’s dedication to his clients and his willingness to go above and beyond to provide exceptional service have earned him this prestigious award,” said Sandy Krueger, CEO of SIBOR.
