SMDRA Hosts Sixth Annual Diamond Circle Awards
The South Metro Denver Realtor Association (SMDRA) hosted its sixth annual Diamond Circle Awards Ceremony this month at the Hyatt Regency DTC.
The annual gala honors SMDRA’s top producing members across several categories for 2017, including Individual Brokers, Rookie of the Year, Partnerships and Teams, and Office awards ranging from one to five agents up to offices with 250 brokers or more.
SMDRA’s awards event, on April 6, was emceed by Tom Salomone, an accomplished Realtor from Coral Springs, Fla., and 2016 president of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Salomone has been a licensed real estate agent for more than 40 years. He is a second-generation Realtor and broker/ owner of Real Estate II, Inc., a firm specializing in residential real estate.
Todd Schuster, SMDRA’s 2018 chairman of the board, presented the Protecting Our Future Award in Loving Memory of Oliver Frascona to Melissa Maldonado, chief executive officer of SMDRA. The board honored Maldonado for her years of dedication to the Realtor brand and service to the association and community. The award is given in honor of Frascona, who had served as SMDRA’s legal counsel, teacher and friend prior to his death in August 2014. The Diamond Circle Awards ceremony also included a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting Brothers Redevelopment Inc., a Denver-based nonprofit organization that provides housing and a variety of housing-related services to the region’s low-income, elderly and disabled residents. The auction raised more than $5,000 for the organization.
