On Wednesday, October 11th, Maxine Agombar of the RE/MAX Gold Vallejo office was recognized with a Rising Star Award at the California Association of REALTORS Broker Conference in San Diego. We are so proud of her!
To receive the Rising Star award, recipients must have been in business for two years or less, have closed at least ten deals per year, and be nominated by their brokerage. There were a total of twenty-one recipients this year, with Maxine being one of them.
Over the last twelve months, Maxine went from having closed one transaction to fifteen! Originally on a team, she moved to working on her own and has seen huge success. Maxine says about her success:
“It’s all about balance. I am a woman who is constantly striving to learn and be the best version of herself. You could say that I am diversified, yet grounded.”
Maxine received her real estate license while she was in college in 2007. When the crash hit, she shifted gears and went overseas to volunteer. When she came back to the states, she lived in Southern California and held management level positions within the retail, pharmaceutical/medical, and event industries. Maxine was in a car crash that forced her to move home to Northern California to regroup and recover, and that was when she decided to pursue a career in real estate again. She was licensed in June 2016, and has been going full-steam ahead ever since.
In addition to her successful real estate career, she is involved in the Cultivate Community Food Co-Op in Benicia, and also has her certification as a plant-based chef.
When asked about Maxine, her manager Theautis Persons said:
“Maxine has the “It” factor and it was recently acknowledged as she won the rising star award for 2017. Our real estate market is ever changing with many unforeseen challenges to come. Maxine Agombar represents the upcoming group of Realtors that will enhance and maintain the integrity of our industry. We are very fortunate to have Maxine on our team!”
Congratulations again to Maxine on her hard work and dedication to her clients. She truly is a rising star!
