by Marilyn Wilson on October 3, 2017

WAVes of Change AwardWe are proud to announce that Dionna Hall and her newly formed team in South Florida at RAPB + GFLR is the FIRST recipient of WAV Group’s WAVes of Change Award! Watch the video below of the presentation of the first WAVes of Change Award!

Why were they chosen?  For creating the 3rd largest Association and one of the top 10 largest MLSs in America.  RAPB + GFLR is solving problems for brokers in South Florida.  The newly formed organization will provide listing exposure to nearly 30,000 agents, dramatically increasing marketing impact. It will also make it easier for brokers to expand their businesses into a much larger region in South Florida as they choose.

What this hard-working group of volunteers and staff accomplished is NOT easy to do. It took guts, hard work, leadership skills and a strong will to better serve South Florida brokers and agents. This group did not let politics, naysayers or fear get in their way. They just made it happen. They have accomplished something that many have talked about, but have not had the bravery and tenacity to succeed at.

WAV Group LOVES it when we see such great work being done to make our industry strong and vital for the long haul. That’s why we created this new award called the WAVEs of Change award. Now we have a way to take a minute to say thanks to those that go the extra mile for their members.
