The REALTOR® of the Year Award is given to the member who has shown outstanding leadership, commitment, and skill in the real estate industry. Candidates are judged by contributions to the industry, outstanding qualities, and any additional factors that set the individual apart in the award year. “This honor is voted on by peers and competitors so it is very special to me,” Smith-Allen said.   At the awards ceremony, a video traced the highlights of Bonnie’s life so far, including her leadership and community service. Bruce F.
