McColly Real Estate celebrated its 47th Annual Awards and Recognition Celebration on Thursday, September 22. Agents from the 21 McColly offices gathered early in the morning to enjoy a delicious breakfast, chat with one another, and receive awards for all of the hard work they did the previous year. Laughter and applause echoed throughout the room the entire time.
The event was a great way for McColly to recognize all of its agents, managers and employees. Aziza Gil, of the Highland office, was named the Lake County, Indiana Rookie of the Year. Gil came in with a goal for her first year and sold an astounding one home each month. Gil was beyond grateful that McColly awarded her for all the hard work she’s done. She loves the supportive atmosphere her office always strives to build.
“That’s what I love the most about my colleagues, we look out for each other,” said Gil.
Kyle Bowen, Team Leader of The Bowen Group, hopes the event encourages agents to keep doing wonderful work and aim to achieve even higher goals in future years.
“I’m hoping it inspires the younger members of the company to say ‘look, this is where we are in the company, this is where we rank in the state and the region, and we’re doing great and we can do even better.’ To see the numbers and to see who’s above us and what they did and where we need to be to become number one is important,” said Bowen.
Not only did the McColly Awards Celebration recognize accomplishments, but it also allowed people to connect with those they don’t get to see regularly. It was a great way to bring everyone together to bond and build new friendships. Lisa Scanlon, named the Number 1 Producer in Illinois for 2021, explained that events such as these are immeasurably important to her not just personally, but professionally as well.
“Team building and relationship building are very important. I’m currently working with an agent from the Valparaiso office. I’m from Illinois and they’re from Indiana, so getting to know people face to face, and having these events to build morale and support is key,” said Scanlon.
The event was ultimately a wonderful opportunity for McColly Real Estate and affiliated businesses to reflect and celebrate.
At the end of the day, many hugs were shared and some tears were shed—the gratitude in the air was truly touching. McColly Real Estate is sure to have plenty more wonderful achievements to celebrate at next year’s event.
