This year, Towne Realty Group was nominated for “Best Brand Integration ”, “Outstanding Social Media Savvy”, “Most Outbound Referrals”, “Significant Sales Award”, and “Outstanding Rookie”. A nomination for “Extraordinary Philanthropist” went to Towne Realty Group owners and partners, Daniel Cannizzo and Karen Bigos.
“It was extraordinary enough to receive so many nominations, but to actually receive an award, is a testament to the dedication of every associate at Towne Realty Group. Our agents really know their neighborhoods and they volunteer in their communities. Many of us have spent our whole lives in these local towns. Awards like this, make all of the hard work, worth every hour we invest.” said Bigos, a Millburn native.
Towne Realty Group Sales associate, Stephanie Mallios received the “Significant Sales Award” for the highest closed sale in Short Hills for 2014. And although she did not take home an award, Bigos emphasized that the nomination for “Outstanding Rookie” for Towne Realty Group Sales Associate Richa ‘Ricky’ Garg, was extraordinary, in that Ricky is new to this country, from India, and is only in her third year in real estate. “Ricky is closing on almost $20 million in sales in 2014,” said Bigos. “Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. We are all very proud of her accomplishments and her work ethic.”
