In February, the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® held its third annual Celebration of Excellence Awards Gala. It was a roaring 1920’s-themed night no one will soon forget. The night kicked off with gorgeous aerialists dancing from silks high above the gold draped ballroom, but the attention soon turned to the real stars of the night: Our award-winning members. Each year the gala honors WCAR members at the top of the real estate field. Winners of these awards not only excel in sales but as members of WCAR. Members participate in areas such as our philanthropic foundation, government affairs, real estate education, and with our various committees that work to make our association and our community even better.
This year WCAR decided to do something they had never done before and named two Affiliates of the Year, Yvette Meldrum of
Mid-State Title and Heath Albritton of Renasant Mortgage Lending. This year’s Rookie of the Year Award went to Amy Pappas of Parks. WCAR is proud to call Kyle Shults of Keller Williams Realty our 2019 REALTOR® of the Year.
The night did not end there, no sooner than the applause for our winners ended the applause for the amazing 12 South Band began. Members leapt to their feet and on to the dance floor putting their flapper dresses to the test as the band played hits from the 80s to today. REALTORS®, Affiliates, family and friends came together to celebrate their achievements in 2019 and kick off their own Roaring 20s.
