Resources Real Estate  logoRUMSON, NJ - Resources Real Estate presented several sales associates with company awards to honor their outstanding achievements during the month of January 2018. The company meeting took place on February 7th at the new Resources Real Estate Corporate Offices and Training Center in Shrewsbury, NJ.

Gina FarkouhFor a second month in a row, Sales Associate Gina Farkouh, who works in the Rumson office, was named Agent of the Month. This award is given to an agent in recognition of his or her sales success in the previous month, including new listings, recent contracts and sold transactions, as well as past client recognition of their efforts, and other business-building activities. Gina’s total business for the month of January was $3,434,000, including $2,491,500 in new listings, $473,500 in sales closings and $470,000 in properties under contract. Her new listings won Gina the Top Listing Agent award as well. One final accolade Gina received was the Team Spirit Award, given to a sales associate who extends him or herself to help colleagues and/or the company as a whole. Gina stepped in to help with another agent’s clients on very short notice.

“Gina has been on a roll and it takes real talent to succeed like that,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker. “Her expertise in both residential and commercial properties is impressive. Her knowledge in construction and development contributes to her success and it doesn’t hurt that she is warm and very supportive of both her clients and colleagues.”
