The Greater Fort Worth Association of REALTORS® gathered at the Ridglea Country Club on Wednesday for a celebration of member recognition. The GFWAR Awards Luncheon is held annually to commemorate the outstanding members of the association and their accomplishments both professionally and within the community.
The REALTOR® of the Year Award was given to Gaye Reed. Reed began her career as a REALTOR® in 2002 with Coldwell Banker Tanglewood. In her second year, she earned entry into the Coldwell Banker International Sterling Society, which is the top five percent of Coldwell Banker agents. She has also achieved Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society and President’s Circle, the top three and two percent of agents. Reed has served on several GFWAR committees, and chaired the Governmental Affairs committee in 2015. She also facilitates the full day historic homes course. From 2008 to 2016, she served as a City of Fort Worth Zoning Commissioner and currently serves on the Fort Worth Library Advisory Board and the Board of Directors for Historic Fort Worth.
Our office on Westport Parkway at I-35 offers all of the member services found at our main office, including:
GFWAR North Location Hours: Mon-Fri 8:30 a.m.-noon, 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Preservation of historic structures enhances our community, protects our quality of life and gives us a pride of place. It helps us recognize the importance local history and architecture play in shaping our sense of who we are and from where we come.
Know of a property owner / investor who has made noticeable exterior improvements to his or her property? Once a quarter, the Neighborhood Revitalization Committee of GFWAR is honoring a property owner / investor who has enhanced the Fort Worth community through property revitalization. The property may be a commercial or residential structure, and the committee prefers that the work was done within the past 18 months. (Please include a before and after photo of the property with the application.)
Did you know that Berkeley Place was initially part of the 1850 Mexican Government's Peters Colony? Or, that Como once included a beautiful recreation resort with pavilion, casino and amusement rides? Or how about the history of Cooke's Meadow in which General Ed. Tarrant and his troops embarked on an expedition to find the Indians who had been disturbing the peace of the settlers in that area? They followed a lone squaw who had been washing clothes in Village Creek to her camp and routed the Indians. Get the facts about the neighborhoods in Fort Worth with the Book of Neighborhoods, written by Wini Klein, REALTOR®. The book is available on disk in the REALTOR® store, and includes important facts, figures, history and neighborhood restrictions about the neighborhoods in west, east and southwest Fort Worth. This is an excellent gift to clients! The cost is $7 for members and $8 for non-members.
All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR "®" logo on their business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.
