Our REALTORS® are some of the most driven salespeople in Marion County– and year after year, we have the results to prove that prove it. We’re proud to announce our 2018 OMCAR award winners, top achievers who have gone above and beyond in realizing their real estate goals, and those of their customers. Each year, OMCAR awards those who go the distance, awarding the Outstanding Achievers award to those REALTORs® who have sold over $3 Million in property volume, and Top Professionals to those who have sold $1 Million or more in property volume. This year, we have several agents in each category, a testament to our belief that each and every customer should have the opportunity to Buy & Sell with Confidence.
