The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS (SDAR) honored San Diego’s top real estate producers and members who exemplify excellence at their annual Circle of Excellence awards gala held on Saturday, January 13, 2018. The Awards of Excellence recognize those who have exemplified outstanding service to their clients, community, the association, and the real estate community as a whole. Several Affiliates of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty received honors at the event.
One of the biggest thrills of the evening was watching Seth O’Byrne take the stage to accept the honor of 2017 REALTOR of the Year. “Seth has an incredible vision, unstoppable drive, and a smile on his face for everyone he meets” says Brian Arrington, Chairman, Pacific Sotheby’s Realty. “He has taken our industry to a whole other level through his innovative marketing strategies. The sky is literally the limit with Seth and we could not be more proud to have him on our team!”
Kimberly Koll, REALTOR in Pacific Sotheby’s Realty’s Inland Corridor office received the award for 2017 Rookie of the Year. Kimberly, a native of San Diego, is the third generation in her family to actively sell residential real estate. Raised in Poway, she has an extensive knowledge of the 1-15 corridor neighborhoods along with a niche in the downtown real estate market. She is a military spouse and can easily relate to hardships of moving cross country and not having a place to call home.
Other honors of the evening included recognition of Jeffrey Douglass, Regional Manager of Pacific Sotheby’s Realty who was a Finalist for Manager of the Year and Amber Anderson of Anderson White and Associates in Pacific Sotheby’s Realty’s La Jolla office who was a Finalist for REALTOR of the Year.
