It's okay to brag a little if one is the recipient of an award that wasn't even apply for.  Right?  I was just informed that I have been awarded the Five Star Professional award for real estate professionals for the third year in a row.

In their words: "Five Star Professional conducts market research to define and promote professional excellence in the professions we serve. The Five Star designation assists consumers in selecting a service professional that other consumers say provides exceptional client satisfaction and service."  Here is a link to their website:

This is not an award about productivity.  It is all about quality of service, which is what we value and promote.  For 2018, there will be a total of 166 agents recognized in all of Orange County (out of about 40,000 agents), and Csira Properties is the only winner in Laguna Beach. Fewer than 1% of agents get through the process and are awarded the recognition, so we're kind of proud.
