Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, a leading provider of real estate services in the Tahoe/Truckee region, announced today that Christy Curtis, of its Truckee Glenshire office, has been honored as Realtor of the Year for 2011 by the Tahoe Sierra Board of REALTORS®. 

At its annual installation and awards dinner held in early December at the Resort at Squaw Creek, the organization presented Curtis with what is considered one of its highest honors.  Agents who receive the Realtor of the Year award are recognized for their reputation for ethical conduct, outstanding service and contribution to the real estate profession, service and contribution to the community as well as the Board of Realtors, and respect of their peers.

“Christy is incredibly deserving of the Realtor of the Year award and I am proud to see her honored,” said Mike Lombardi, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Tahoe/Truckee region.  “Christy embodies the many qualifications which make up this prestigious award and is a standout in the Tahoe-Truckee community.  In addition to her work within the real estate arena, she holds director roles with the Truckee Chamber of Commerce and the citizen’s oversight committee for the new cancer center in Truckee. So it is wonderful to see Christy recognized by her peers.”

Curtis began working in real estate in 1980 and she and her team, Christy Curtis and Crew, have grown to be one of the most highly-respected real estate teams in the Tahoe/Truckee region.  Curtis frequently ranks in the top tiers of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage sales associates and has won numerous awards for her work.

Curtis and her husband, Paul, have lived in Truckee for more than 25 years and say they feel lucky to have been able to raise their children, Kirsten and Ryan, in such a wonderful community.
