The morning actually began one year ago as the awards committee confirmed the date for the 2016 RE/MAX Gold Awards Gala. The date March 25th, 2016. The theme: Be The One. This year was not only a celebration of agent achievement through transactions and volume but as our President James O’Bryon so eloquently spoke to Being The One. Be the difference maker to a family, a new home owner. James told the story about a first time home buyer who after moving into their new home early were threatened with and eviction due to a delay on their loan. Yet with the help of a few RE/MAX Gold agents and our preferred relationship with Big Valley Mortgage we were been able to avoid the new first time home buyers being evicted on a Friday and holiday weekend. We had been able to convince the sellers that the buyers loan would close and everything would be okay. It was at this moment James realized that while it is with great excitement we celebrate our success, that being the Number One Independent Real Estate Brokerage in Northern and Central California, that closing 11,400 transactions didn’t matter to these new home buyers. What mattered to them was their transaction and that we were able to Be The One.
As agents arrived they were greeted by a one of a kind Champagne girl adorning a gold dress surrounded by champagne filled glasses, stilt walkers and acrobatic artists. Agents filled the room with the anticipation of each being recognized for their 2015 achievements. This morning RE/MAX Gold would be recognizing those agents who achieved Executive, 100%, Platinum, Chairman’s, Titan, and even one agent who achieved Diamond Status, an award that recognizes those agents who have grossed over $1 Million in commissions in a 1 year period.
RE/MAX Gold is a special place and we could not be more proud of all of our agents’ accomplishments. It defines us, helping thousands of home sellers and buyers each year achieve their dream. Smiles lit up the room as each agent was recognized for their success and walked across the stage and be applauded by their peers. A special recognition added to the gala in the last few years is our CMN Recognition. This is the Children’s Miracle Network participation award. This award recognizes those agents who made significant contributions through their transactions in support of RE/MAX Gold’s contribution to the Children’s Miracle Network. Our goal in 2016 is to raise over $100,000 and each and every agent who participates is vital to making a difference in a child’s life. It brings it all back to what we started with. Be The One.
