2021 Rookie of the Year

The Rookie of the Year Award will be based on the rookie’s first 12 months of performance in real estate. Members will be eligible for this award the year in which their first anniversary falls from the original date they joined Northwest Ohio REALTORS®. To be eligible for this year’s award, the applicant must have joined NOR between the dates of September 1, 2019 and August 30, 2020 AND completed their first full transactional year between the dates of September 1, 2020 and August 30, 2021. Applicants that have actively sold real estate in prior years or with another Board shall be ineligible. Applicants must currently be active in the real estate profession and a member in good standing with Northwest Ohio REALTORS®.  Applications Must Be Submitted By October 15 2021

Applicants may attach to the back of the completed application letters of reference or other documents that they wish the review committee to consider in making its final decision.

In an effort to recognize REALTORS® who are well rounded, five different categories are evaluated in determining the recipient of NOR’s Rookie of the Year. The applicant’s number of transactions, sales volume, REALTOR® education, community involvement, and NOR involvement are each worth 20% of the overall score.

(EXAMPLE: If you joined NOR on 11/1/2018 your first year would be completed as of 11/1/2019. All transactions, education, and volunteer items that fell between these dates would qualify to be included on the
application for this award. If you joined NOR on 2/1/2019 your full year would end 2/1/2020.)

Applicant shall supply the review committee a list of transactions completed in the first full year as a REALTOR® with Northwest Ohio Realtors®. This shall include both listings sold and buyer controlled sales with each “side” the agent completes counted as one (1) transaction.

Applicant shall submit the total sales price of all closed transactions and the date upon which the closing took place. Again, the listing side shall account for one times the sold amount and the agent, also making the sale of their own listing, shall be allowed to add the sales price into the closed volume.

Applicant shall provide a list of classes completed which will count for either a Graduate Realtor® Institute (GRI), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), or toward any accredited continuing education requirement as established by the Ohio Division of Real Estate.

Applicant shall list all Board of Realtor® activities and committees in which the applicant has attended.

Applicants shall, on the forms provided, list all activities of community involvement in which the applicant participates.
