Realtors Cash In With Summerlin Recognition Program

It took a little bit of due diligence for RE/MAX Central Realtor Anne Coming, but it really paid off.  As the winner of the 2014 Summerlin Realtor Appreciation Program, Coming received a check for $5,000. But first she put in the work to learn about the newest homes in Summerlin.

"Naturally, I am always happy when new homes are offered for sale,” said Coming.  “As an NAR Green Designated Realtor, I endeavor to sell energy efficient homes offering the latest technology.  Also, very interesting to me was the new Downtown Summerlin as I love to shop!" 

Coming now has plenty of cash to take to Downtown Summerlin.  She also plans to contribute to her favorite charity. It’s the icing on the cake for a program she says was, “well planned” and offered a “thoughtfully structured presentation.”

“With so much developing in Summerlin we really wanted to give realtors an inside look at the community and educate them about the master-plan,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, director of marketing for Summerlin. “And of course, the ultimate goal is to sell homes.  We thought a $5,000 incentive was a good idea.”

Bisterfeldt revamped the program for 2014 in an effort to include an educational component as well as an incentive to sell Summerlin homes.  More than 500 realtors attended one of several seminars offered last year. Each included an historical overview of the master-planned community, details about the newest neighborhoods and a behind-the-scenes look at the still-developing Downtown Summerlin. To qualify for the $5,000 drawing, Realtors took a short online test and sold at least two new Summerlin homes.

“To ensure we are offering what best meets the needs of Realtors, we will continue to consider their input to evolve and grow the program in the coming year,” said Bisterfeldt.

Realtors can receive updates by opting into the Summerlin Realtor database at www.Summerlin.com.

“I'd definitely encourage local agents to attend this program next year,” said Coming.
