N o less than the very best in the industry were expected to emerge from the Think Realty Honors 2017 nomi- nations. There was no surprise when some truly admirable individuals, well-known and respected on both local and national levels, showed up early in the nominations process. What was pleasantly surprising, however, was the trend that appeared early in a certain aspect of how students,

colleagues, and partners described their nominees in the initial nominations letter. Certainly, there was much praise for in- vesting acumen, high returns, and the abil- ity to add astronomical value to a portfolio. However, the other trend that emerged was one of service. Think Realty Honors nominees serve not just the real estate in- vesting community through education and investment guidance, but also a number of

other, broader communities both through personal service and financial support. Think Realty will honor 2017 finalists and award winners at the Think Realty National Conference & Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 14-15, 2017. Below, you can read a complete list of all the caus- es and organizations mentioned in nom- inations packets for Think Realty Honors nominees and judges at every level. •
