LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS (GLVAR) and its Young Professionals Network of Las Vegas (YPN) announced the winners of their annual “40 Under 40” awards this week.
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. They will be recognized at an April 28 event at the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas. They will also be recognized in various ways by GLVAR, including being featured in GLVAR’s monthly Southern Nevada REALTOR publication.
