Bennion Deville Homes REALTOR® Judy Zeigler of the Palm Desert San Pablo office, located at 44-530 San Pablo Avenue, Suite 101, was honored with the “2016 California Distinguished Realtor® Award,” the highest recognition that the organization can bestow on a member, at a recent California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.) event in Long Beach. She will be formally presented with the award at the annual Inaugural Gala in January of 2017. Judy is the first California Desert Association of Realtors® (C.D.A.R.) member to earn the award after serving all of their time with the California Desert Association of Realtors®.
To be considered for the honor, candidates must meet a stringent set of criteria, including a minimum of 20 years as a California REALTOR®, a demonstration of outstanding service to C.A.R. for at least 15 of those 20 years, and must be a “C.A.R. Director for Life.” The award recipient is then chosen by a selection committee that reviews the candidates in greater detail and with a more finite set of criteria. “I was really stunned as I wasn’t expecting it,” Judy laughs. “It is a great honor to be recognized by C.A.R. for my service and doing what I love to do. To be associated with the names of the past recipients is truly humbling.”
An active member of C.A.R. since 1988, Judy embodies the true spirit of a real estate professional, displaying a deep dedication to selflessly serving and helping others. In 2003, she was awarded a “C.A.R. Director for Life,” an honor bestowed upon no more than 3 C.A.R. members per year out of all C.A.R. Board of Directors. This year, she was selected by the Association President to serve on the Executive Committee. In addition to her C.A.R. duties, Judy also actively serves as a National Association of Realtors® (N.A.R.) Board of Director, a position she has held since 2000.
“We are proud of Judy’s well-deserved recognition from C.A.R.,” states Bob Deville, Co-Founder of Bennion Deville Homes. “Her work as a C.A.R. Board member is incredible, and coupled with the many clients she has helped buy and sell homes in the Coachella Valley, makes her the perfect recipient for this prestigious award. We would like to congratulate Judy on her successful career and look forward to working with her for years to come.”Next Post Previous Post
