The Tri-County Women’s Council of Realtors Network held its Top Producer events in September (St. Lawrence County Board of Realtors) and in October (Jefferson-Lewis Board of Realtors). The award was based on sales of single-family homes, two-to-four family homes, commercial buildings, land, farms, and seasonal properties sold between Sept. 1, 2019 to Aug. 31, as recorded in either the St. Lawrence County Multiple Listing Service (www.slcmls.com) or the Jefferson-Lewis Multiple Listing Service (www.nnymls.com) and residential rentals in the Jefferson-Lewis MLS. The top 20 percent of realtors were awarded a Top Producer Certificate as either Gold (11%-20%) or Platinum (top 10%) Producers. While it is not necessary to be a WCR member to be recognized, this year twelve of the network’s 23 members were Top Producers.
Normally given out as part of a dinner event, this year’s ceremonies took place on Zoom due to COVID restrictions. Each Top Producer was sent a bright green envelope with a noise maker, mini-clapping hands, a “gold” metal, a bag of confetti, and some candy along with an invitation to the Zoom ceremony. Both events recognized WCR’s 2020 sponsors – Gouverneur Savings and Loan, Homestead Funding Corporation, and the Jefferson-Lewis Board of Realtors.
