Patricia Farrell, Administrator/Comptroller with EXIT Realty Homeward Bound in Vestal and Oneonta, NY, was named Administrator of the Year at the EXIT Realty Corp. International Convention held recently at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort near Jacksonville, Florida.
The heartbeat of a successful real estate office is its professional administrative staff. They are the plate-spinners and the glue that holds the operation together. When EXIT Realty’s Founder and Chairman, Steve Morris, was constructing the company’s business model, he felt so strongly about the invaluable contribution of a brokerage’s support staff, he incorporated recognition for Administrator of the Year at the company’s annual awards ceremony.
The Administrator of the Year must meet strict compliance standards and is chosen from nominations received from brokerages across North America. Robert Farrell, Broker/Owner of EXIT Realty Homeward Bound, nominated Patricia for this prestigious award. “The Administrator of our offices is not a job that can be written out on any job description,” he said. “Patti knows that it is the tiny, often overlooked details that make the difference between mediocre and perfection. Her listening ear and wisdom are the glue that creates lasting bonds with her family, friends and agents, not a document or title. She’ll do whatever it takes for however long it takes to make sure any task is completed. She puts her heart into all her endeavors.”
Derek Stephenson, EXIT Realty Corp. International’s Franchise Support Manager, was on hand with company executives to present Patricia with her award. “Patti has been instrumental in making EXIT Realty Homeward Bound a success since its launch in 2002, always embracing and adapting program enhancements EXIT has implemented over the years guaranteeing her team is able to provide immediate and professional support to Homeward Bound associates,” said Derek. “In June of 2016 EXIT Realty Homeward Bound expanded adding a second office and with Patti’s steadfast leadership skills and commitment, they have grown to over 65 sale associates and staff members. Patti has always possessed high values and morals making her a great leader and a delight to work with. On behalf of the Franchise Support Team, congratulations Patti, well deserved.”
