On November 1st, Pam Vreeland, a Sparta, New Jersey Realtor® with Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors®, was named Realtor® of the Year. The award was announced at Farmstead Golf & Country Club during the annual breakfast meeting of the Sussex County Association of Realtors®.
Candidates for the award were considered based on Realtor® spirit, involvement in local, state, and national associations, business accomplishments, community service, and humanitarian services.
Upon presenting the award to Pam, Sussex County Association’s President, Sandra Gardner, explained that someone with Realtor® spirit demonstrates the principles defined by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, is highly respected by the general public and peers, and continues to educate himself or herself in their practice.
“Realtor® spirit is more than just a set of values, it is a way of life. Pam is the perfect example of what Realtor® spirit is: dedication to the furtherance of good real estate practice, completing advanced real estate leadership coursework, mentoring new Realtors®, along with always lending a helping hand or offering advice to those in need. Over the years Pam has dedicated countless hours to the Sussex County Association of Realtors®, serving on its board of directors, participating in numerous committees, bringing new ideas, and always giving a helping hand where needed,” said Gardner.
In addition to her work with local real estate professionals and Sussex County Association, Pam has created an inseverable connection to the local community. Pam has assisted with applying for grants, fundraising for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and coordinated blood drives. She has dedicated numerous years to the Lake Mohawk Preservation Foundation and served as a trustee. Two years ago, Pam and her husband, Mark, bought a farm where they work with Aeroflex Equine Therapy, which rents part of the farm to offer therapy through animals for mental health, trauma, autism, and special needs. Recently, Pam became the President of the Sussex County Habitat for Humanity where she works hard promoting its mission of partnering with people in the community to help build and improve homes.
“There is a reason why we call our agents ‘Executives’, and Pam is a prime example,” said Doug Radford, co-owner of Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors®. “Those who are truly professional and passionate about their work understand that real estate isn’t just about a transaction- it is a calling to be of service to others. It is about caring for your community and those within it, both in the course of business and also in our personal time. This recognition is well-deserved and hard earned, and we could not be more excited for Pam.”
Pam Vreeland will be honored at the Realtors® Triple Play Convention in Atlantic City on December 5th. She can be reached at 201-317-9883 or by calling the Realty Executives branch office at 973-729-7141.
