GLVAR honors its “40 Under 40,” Hall of Fame members

The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors and its Young Professionals Network of Las Vegas recently announced the winners of its annual “40 Under 40” awards.

The awards program was created to acknowledge the top 40 local Realtors under the age of 40 who demonstrate excellence in their careers and service to their community, the real estate industry and their state, local and national associations.

Honorees were chosen by a selection committee of GLVAR members, who also considered their professional designations, contributions to charities and to GLVAR’s Political Survival Fund, as well as their annual real estate sales transactions and number of properties they manage.

The winners will be honored at an April 27 event at the Hard Rock Hotel &Casino in Las Vegas. They also will be recognized in various ways by GLVAR, including being featured in GLVAR’s monthly Southern Nevada Realtor publication.
