Northern RI Board of Realtors

Awards

The Northern Rhode Island Board of REALTORS® is pleased to recognize the sales achievements of its members as well as the contributions members make to the real estate industry, the REALTOR® Association and the Community. 

Diamond Sales Awards – presented each March;  This recognition program is composed of outstanding REALTOR® members who have attained designated sales and listing volume and who strive to provide the highest level of professional real estate services.  The Board of Directors approved the following changes to the Diamond Sales Awards rules, effective immediately for the 2019 production year.  No emailed or mailed applications will be accepted - members will be required to upload a 2019 application and supporting documentation via Google Forms by 4:30 pm on 2/1/2020 via your Google account (click here to sign up for a free account, if you do not already have one).  Also, for any properties reported as a co-listing: only one listing agent will receive 50% credit and one selling agent will receive 50% credit - so each has equal volume.
