Designated REALTOR® Mary Begier, CRS of Mary Begier Realty has been named the 2002 REALTOR® of the Year by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. The REALTOR® of the Year Award is the most distinguished award the Honolulu Board of REALTORS® has had the honor of presenting for the last 45 years.
About being selected for this award, Begier says, "People often ask me how I can afford to spend as much time as I do volunteering. When you receive the recognition and appreciation of your peers like I am in receiving the REALTOR® of the Year Award for HBR, how can I afford not to volunteer! It's the caliber of member and community contacts that I have made in my volunteer endeavors that enhances the service I am able to provide my clients, my community and my industry. Being a REALTOR® is something I am very, very proud to be!"
"Mary is fiercely passionate about work and volunteering and is held in the highest esteem by her peers and the community," said Helen Lindemann, chair of the REALTOR® of the Year committee and REALTOR® of the Year in 2000. "With an emphasis on government affairs, Mary has tirelessly worked on an endless number of committees at the local, state and national levels. From issues of private property rights and housing and community development to the Hawaii Hurricane Relief Fund, Mary has definitely made an impact on the real estate industry. She truly embodies the REALTOR® spirit."
