Nevada Appeal staff report

RE/MAX Southwest Region (Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico) has recognized RE/MAX Realty Affiliates with offices in Reno, Carson City and Gardnerville with prestigious office, individual and team awards for the state of Nevada and the Southwest region. RRA received the 2018 Multi-Office Volume Award for the RE/MAX Southwest Region for closing more than $860 million in volume last year.

RRA agent Christianne O’Malley placed second in the state for closed transactions in 2018. Four of RRA’s teams received top 10 in the state awards: Mike Wood Team placed first for team commissions and closed transactions. The Lessinger Team placed third for team commissions, Julie Knecht’s team placed eighth for team commissions and David Morris Group placed ninth for team commissions.

“I’m so proud of our agents, and it’s incredibly exciting to see them get for their hard work,” said Amy Keith Lessinger, broker/owner of the Reno office. “They all are a strong reflection of the RE/MAX philosophy, hard work and dedication that makes them so successful.”

Mike Wood received the RE/MAX 2018 “Above the Crowd” award which is “presented to an agent who is well rounded, an invaluable resource to the office, their peers, and supports the community.” Wood received this award for his outstanding involvement in all aspects of RRA. Wood’s team donates a portion of all commissions to Children’s Miracle Network and the American Cancer Society.

Teams and individuals are ranked based upon their closed transactions and sales volume and compete against all among fellow RE/MAX agents, 456 statewide and the 2,053 agents in the Southwest region.
