PMAR (Portland Metro Association of Realtors) is the largest Realtor association in Oregon (as you might imagine). They give out awards to Realtors in good standing with PMAR corresponding to home sales. In 2014 I earned the highest award the Masters Circle gives out, Diamond-Platinum. I’ve asked them when I should expect to receive my diamonds in the mail, but haven’t gotten a response yet. : ) Either way, I’m proud to accept this designation from the Portland Metro Association of Realtors and appreciate their focus on ethics and consumer relationships.
Here are the purposes of the Masters Circle of Realtors in Portland:
To foster closer relationships among members of the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors®.
To foster professionalism and ethics in the real estate industry.
To enhance public relations in the community.
To provide informative programs for the membership.
To share views and knowledge.
To maintain a committee through which salesperson members of the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors® may receive recognition for achievement in the areas of listing and selling real property.
According to the Masters Circle, it is important to choose a Masters Circle member for these reasons, “Your Realtor® should be a member of the PMAR Masters Circle. The Masters Circle is a benchmark organization
formed to recognize Realtors® distinguished by their sales accomplishments and dedicated to the highest degree of professional quality service. Membership is earned by Realtors® who annually demonstrate outstanding achievements in the listing and selling of property. For most people, buying real property is their largest single investment. You benefit from working with a Realtor® who has an established record of success.”
Receiving the highest level of Portland’s Masters Circle award means, “Diamond-Platinum members have attained $5 million or more in closed dollar volume during the preceding year and have sold $20 million or more in closed dollar volume during the immediate past four consecutive years.” For many years, I have exceeded their sales standards. Let me know if I can put my experience to work for you.
