FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For More Information:
Maureen Kennedy Selected as One of Top 50
Realtors on the Rise Across Nation
East Bay real estate broker Maureen Kennedy of Pacific Union Real Estate-GMAC was selected as one of the top 50 Realtors on the Rise nationwide by RISMedia's August 2008 Real Estate issue. Kennedy is the first San Francisco Bay Area winner in the program's four-year history.
Highlighted as a quick study, the magazine cited Kennedy for her commitment to affordable housing and involvement in housing policy, as well as for her sales and marketing accomplishments.
"I'm pleased to be the first Bay Area winner of this prestigious award," said Kennedy. "I've been successful at bringing together my commitment to customer service and my understanding of our unique market to advance the interests of my clients. And in this market, we need to be tech savvy because our buyers and sellers are. It's great to get this national recognition from such an influential source."
Now in its fourth year, the Realtors on the Rise competition honors 50 of the industry's best and brightest. All have entered the market within the last five years. Each nominee was required to submit a one-page resume and 500-word summary of accomplishments. These were then judged from among hundreds of entrants from across the country on their overall success, incorporating today's best practices in sales and marketing, customer service, use of technology, business savvy and negotiation prowess.
