“I am very honored to have been nominated for this award by my fellow Realtors,” said Kay.  “I feel very blessed to be a successful Realtor for more than 19 years.  I feel there are many Realtors in our board who deserve this honor that I was awarded and I humbly thank them for choosing me as the recipient this year.”

 

Kay was chosen among several nominated Realtors for the annual top honor.  Her selection was on the basis of having demonstrated outstanding involvement and leadership over the past year serving the local, state and national Realtor associations, business achievements, civic and charitable activities, serving on political committees, religious group involvement and showing Realtor Spirit.

“I feel when the business is good to you, you have to give back to your community, which is why I love doing charity work and why I love being on the mission team of my church,” said Kay.  “We go to Jamaica to build small homes for the homeless.  It is not just the American Dream to have your own home it is a worldwide dream.  It makes what I do worthwhile when I see a family move into a new home here or in Jamaica.”
