Along with several individual honorees, the Houston Association of Realtors took home a group prize for the most innovative real estate program of the year for their "H-Town Day" in 2010, the Texas Association of Realtors announced today.
The group's chairman, Dwight Hale, said the awards were an opportunity to celebrate real estate professionals who have contributed to the advancement of the industry in Texas.
"This event is a celebration of the past year's achievements and a chance to honor all those who have devoted their time, energy and efforts to enhancing our industry," he said.
In addition to the innovation award, three Houston Realtors were inducted into the national parent organization's Omega Tau Rho fraternity, founded to recognize excellence in the profession. They were Mario Arriaga, Danny Frank, and Chaille Ralph. Chairman Hale was also received into the fraternity, the group noted.
With numerous top-level professionals operating in the area, it's no wonder the future looks reasonably bright for the Houston property market. Several recent studies have demonstrated the potential for strong growth and recovery from the housing crash.
