Rob Friele Named REALTOR® of the Year

Rob Friele Named REALTOR® of the Year

The REALTORS® Association of Edmonton presented the highest honour of the industry, the REALTOR® of the Year Award, to Rob Friele, Rancho Realty (Edmonton) Ltd, at the REALTORS® Ball held Friday, February 24 at the Westin Hotel in Edmonton.

Friele has been a REALTOR® since 1985. He was a two-term RAE Director (2008-2013) and sat on a number of committees, including Member Services, Government & Political Action, Commercial Division, and Arbitration & Professional Standards Committee. He also attends most RAE events and supports the REALTORS® Community Foundation in many capacities. He is highly respected and considered a great mentor to many.

A special acknowledgement also goes to Graham Downey, who received a 55-year long term service award. We had to cast a new pin just for him, as our first recipient ever of that award.

In addition, Life Memberships to the Association were also awarded to three REALTORS® for their commitment to the real estate industry. To watch their congratulatory video, click on each of the winner's names.
