Geoff Green, President, welcomed everyone to the Green Team Realty 2020 Sales Awards. Normally, the annual sales award event is held at the Warwick Valley Country Club, with a band or D.J., plenty of food and drink, and lots of good spirits and comradery. However, the pandemic has required creative alternatives. Therefore, Geoff and Green Team Marketing Director Andrew Clough decided to put together an event on Zoom. The Awards Ceremony was divided into three webinars, with Sales Awards being the first, on February 10. The following night celebrated the Team Player and CItizen of the Year Award Winners. Finally, on February 12, Geoff announced the recipient of the Momentum Builder Award.
Geoff shared his appreciation for Green Team sales associates, as well as one of his favorite quotes:
“Great salespeople are relationship builders who provide value and help their customers win.” Jeffrey Gitomer
2020 was a challenging year for all, but Green Team sales associates faced some unique situations. As independent contractors, they do not receive salaries or benefits, such as health insurance. Further, they have had to adapt to ever-changing state restrictions and regulations on the real estate industry. As the pandemic wore on, many city-dwellers decided to move to suburban and rural areas, including Orange and Sussex Counties. Sales associates had to adjust to different ways of helping clients buy or sell homes while making sure that everyone stayed safe. Many of our sales associates rose to the occasion, and we honor them here.
