The prestigious HBR REALTOR® of the Year Award annually honors one special REALTOR® who has significantly contributed to the advancement of the real estate profession as well as the community-at-large. The blue-ribbon REALTOR® of the Year Committee selects the REALTOR® of the Year on the basis of REALTOR® spirit, faithfulness to the HBR REALTOR® Code of Ethics, civic activity, business accomplishments and local, state and national REALTOR® participation.
The REALTOR® of the Year Award Program is sponsored by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®, Central Pacific HomeLoans and Pacific Business News. Congratulations to all recipients!
Pictured on the logo is the lehua blossom of the 'ohi'a tree. The wood from the 'ohi'a tree was used in traditional Hawaiian house construction prior to western arrival. Today, the hard wood is used in flooring and furniture. The lehua blossom symbolically represents a warrior, beloved friend, an expert. Together the 'ohi'a tree and its lehua blossom are a fitting representation of those who are bestowed the REALTOR® of the Year by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®.
