Kathy Parker of Maryville, a sales associate with Coldwell Banker Nelson Realtors, Inc. was the Number One Sales Associate in Closed Adjusted Gross Commission Income among more than 1,112 Coldwell Banker sales associates in Tennessee for independently owned and operated affiliated companies in the Coldwell Banker system in 2009.
The award was presented to Parker by Elizabeth Guard, Regional Executive Business Consultant for Coldwell Banker Real Estate, LLC, at an awards and educational rally for Coldwell Banker brokers and sales associates on Wednesday, March 17 at Rothchilds in Knoxville.
“It is a privilege to present the Top Producer for the state of Tennessee award to Kathy Parker. Her professionalism and commitment to providing superior customer service is a cornerstone of the Coldwell Banker brand,” said Jim Gillespie, president and chief executive officer, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, who spoke at the event. “Coldwell Banker has been a trusted name in the real estate industry for more than 100 years because of people like Kathy Parker. She represents the very best of what Coldwell Banker has to offer.”
“While this was a challenging year for the real estate industry, millions of people continue to buy and sell homes based on their lifestyles and needs. This was undoubtedly a difficult year in our industry, but real estate is cyclical, and positive signs over recent months signal a tipping point for the residential real estate market,” notes Gillespie.
“Kathy Parker exemplifies the standards of excellence for which Coldwell Banker sales associates are known,” said Frank Lindsey, Senior VP and regional director for the Coldwell Banker eastern Tennessee region. “We are proud to have her as part of our network.”
“This is an unprecedented honor for Kathy and our office,” said Julie Nelson, Broker/Owner of Coldwell Banker Nelson Realtors. “We knew she was outstanding but to be the top Coldwell Banker agent for the entire state is pretty amazing, especially when competing with agents from some of the largest real estate firms in the country.”
Previously Parker has been recognized with the Coldwell Banker International President’s Elite Award, the International President’s Circle Award, and the International Sterling Society Awards. Locally she is a yearly recipient of the Award of Merit by the Knoxville Association of Realtors, earning the top honor, Diamond Award of Merit, the past two years.
