SMART designees were recognized during SMDRA’s April Power Breakfast.

Available exclusively to SMDRA members, the designation is awarded to those who have earned a minimum number of points over a calendar year. “SMART is part of a larger effort to a commitment of excellence that sets the Realtor brand apart,” said Marcel Savoie, chairman of the board of SMDRA. “Our association is dedicated to the pursuit of higher standards for all of our Realtor members. The designation is a reward for our members who go above and beyond the minimum education requirements.” SMART designation winners receive a logo for their personal email signature, a media advertising packet, a printable certificate and a SMART pin.
