Summit Sotheby’s Celebrates a Stellar 2016

By Julie Roberts

Summit Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to celebrate the achievements of 12 of their agents who were recently honored by the Salt Lake Board of Realtors®. In its annual “Best Of” awards presentation, the Salt Lake Board of Realtors® presented Gold or Platinum Hall of Fame awards to Adam Kirkham, Angie Nelden, Susan Poulin, Jeff Justice, Maura Powers, Wendy Wheeler, Laurel Simmons, Chris Sidwell, Carolyn Kirkham, Stacy Wissman, Ryan Kirkham, and Thomas Wright. To be honored with a 2016 Hall of Fame Award, agents had to meet both sales benchmarks of over $10 million in closed transactions and support the mission of the Salt Lake Board of Realtors® through service projects and committee involvement. 

“I’m just really proud of our agents, not just for their sales achievements but for their commitment to giving back to the real estate community,” said Ryan Kirkham, Managing Broker for Summit Sotheby’s International Realty’s Salt Lake City offices. “The one common thread amongst the award winners, as well as our entire team of agents, is that they always do what is right, and put their clients first, above all else.”

Kirkham shared that the agents’ unique backgrounds and prior experience were a crucial part in their efforts to earn the Hall of Fame Awards. Many Summit Sotheby’s International Realty agents have years of top producing experience in fields ranging from financial and investment services to marketing, creating a well-rounded real estate culture that simply cannot be duplicated.

Kirkham also believes that the innovative support staff at Summit Sotheby’s International Realty plays an essential role to promote the firm’s productivity and advancement. The Utah affiliate of Sotheby’s International Realty provides its clients and agents with an unprecedented level of exposure through its in-house creative services team, including: photography and videography, graphic and digital design, public relations, web development, and media buying. Additionally, agents have the support of office, transaction, and management staff, providing ongoing training and education to ensure sales associates have the most up-to-date knowledge on real estate technologies, trends, laws, and contracts.

The team at Summit Sotheby’s International Realty is inspired by the success achieved in 2016, setting high sales and community goals for the remainder of 2017. Kirkham believes that the company’s top-quality agents and innovative staff will continue to be key drivers of Summit Sotheby’s International Realty’s achievements. “We have the hardest working team of agents and support staff ready to provide our neighbors a level of service that they can depend on. The 2016 Hall of Fame Awards are a representation of the work done by our agents and the countless hours of our team behind the scenes.”
