EMTAR’s REALTOR® of The Year for 2019 is…


Of all the awards a REALTOR® can achieve, REALTOR® of the Year is the highest honor and award that can be obtained. Unlike all the other awards that are based solely on sales, this award is based on many attributes that make a REALTOR® stand out above the rest. It recognizes those who have served not only the real estate profession but also their communities, how much they have participated at all levels of the REALTOR® organization, how they have advanced their professional development, and their contributions to civic activities, charity and community development.

REALTORS® are nominated by their fellow peers and then each candidate is screened and scored by a committee made up of past REALTOR® of the Year recipients.



Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and out of our concern for your continued health and well-being, our Board of Directors and Officers are evaluating our services, meetings and events and how we proceed as an organization. We will follow closely our municipalities, cities and county as well as the state of Tennessee to see what Phases are implemented and how we can best server the EMTAR membership.
