The Residential Brokerage Division Deal of the Year Sales & Rental Awards
The Residential Brokerage Division has presented annual Deal of the Year awards since 1988. Winners of these awards show creativity or ingenuity in overcoming unique obstacles to make a successful deal. The Division also bestows the Henry Forster Award upon a broker whose career accomplishments and personal conduct bring credit to the entire residential brokerage community.
These awards are presented at the Annual Residential Brokerage Division's Deal of the Year Charity Gala.
