The New Jersey Realtors® Circle of Excellence® Sales Award® program consists of two awards; the NJ Realtors® Circle of Excellence Sales Award® and the NJ Realtors® Distinguished Sales Club® Award.

REALTOR® OF THE YEAR

The New Jersey Realtors® REALTOR® of the Year Award recognizes members who contribute an outstanding amount of time and energy to community and humanitarian services, as well to the real estate industry. The selection process begins with submitting a nomination form to the local board/association. These nominations are then submitted to a panel of independent judges who make their selection based on criteria such as REALTOR® spirit, local, state and national activity, business accomplishments and volunteer efforts.  The panel is traditionally chaired by the previous year’s winner and made up of past winners of the award.  The local board/association submits their nomination to New Jersey Realtors® and the process is repeated at the state level. Applications are available during the annual application period, with a traditional deadline in July of each year.

NJR® presents the state winners with their REALTOR® of the Year Awards during the Triple Play REALTOR® Convention and Trade Expo in Atlantic City in December. The local winners are also recognized by NJR® at that time.  SCAR traditionally presents an award to our local winner at our Annual Meeting.

The 2019 REALTOR® Of the Year for Sussex County is:
Karen Glowacki.

The 2020 Awardee will be announced at the Annual Meeting.
