CLARKS SUMMIT, PA (June 12, 2012) – Realty Network Group’s President and Managing Broker, Alice Vanston, was recently honored by the Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® (GSBR) with its Lifetime Achievement Award for years of outstanding service to the Board, the local real estate industry and the Northeastern Pennsylvania community. On May 24, 2012, Vanston was presented this prestigious award at the Board’s Annual Awards Evening Reception, which took place at Fiorelli’s Plaza in Peckville, PA.
This special award is presented to a member of the Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® whose accomplishments, professional experience and wisdom have made a significant impact on the field of real estate within the region. Alice’s longstanding commitment to her clients and colleagues over the years was another reason she was the favorite to receive the GSBR’s inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award. Her character and pioneering spirit over the past three decades have certainly earned her the admiration of her peers.
Alice continues to impact others. As she will tell you, “Nothing makes me happier than to know my clients are completely satisfied with their real estate purchase.” It is in her conviction you realize the secret of this industry is to connect buyers and sellers in a seamless fashion. The real estate transaction, one of the largest many people will ever make, is also an investment in happiness.
Furthermore, she motivates her team at Realty Network Group and encourages those around her to excel. “Under Alice’s leadership, we have continued to leverage traditional marketing tactics while growing technologically including the relaunch of RealtyNetwork.net, use of mobile applications, QR codes and social media networking,” explains Mark DeStefano, CEO. “She has a no-nonsense approach to real estate. Her high ethical standards and astute business sense support our rebranding, significant year-over-year growth in addition to agent retention.”
Alice is an active participant in the GSBR. Over the years, she has served on numerous state and local real estate committees, and was elected President of the Board of REALTORS® in 1994. This lifelong resident of Jessup is a community leader as well: She assists with the financial support of such organizations/causes as Lourdesmont, Jessup 21st Century Association and Ronald McDonald House’s Gourmet Gala, just to name a few.
