2022 AZBBA Holiday Celebration & Awards Ceremony

Our annual holiday party and awards ceremony was a smashing success.  Our private dining room was filled to capacity with 30+ members and guests.  The food and drinks kept flowing as we visited with each other for the 3 hour event which included a plated menu at the Culinary Dropout restaurant in Scottsdale Quarter.  A special thanks to Dan Foley for finding the venue and assisting with all the details.

Each of the brokers drew a raffle ticket for a chance to win a bottle of wine or $50 gift card by generous lender affiliates:  Tim Collins, Dan Foley, Elyse Gonzales and Jonathan Temple.     Nolan Baum, Ruly Couch and Jared Lubeck were among the lucky winners.  Elyse Gonzales got voted “best dressed” for coordinating her outfit to cleverly match her gift bag! 

Next up, was the 2022 AZBBA Member Excellence Awards Ceremony hosted by our 2023 President, Shaun Rudgear.  

Julie Stoney was voted Affiliate of the Year for going above and beyond to not only help the AZBBA continue to be successful and grow as an organization. 

We then celebrated those brokers that have proven exceptionally skilled in this profession.   These 2022 award winners completed 100 transactions for a total of $93,436,250.  An average sales price of $934,000 per transaction!
