Mindy Saffer, principal at commercial real estate firm West, Lane & Schlager, was awarded a Greater Washington Commercial Association of Realtors (GWCAR) Rising Star Award in 2005. Presented to a promising, up-and-coming realtor on an annual basis, the Rising Star Award is one of several honors offered by GWCAR.
Every spring, GWCAR announces the winners of its performance-based awards at the Annual Commercial Awards Dinner, which is attended by real estate professionals across the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. The key categories recognized by GWCAR include the top firms and individuals in sales, leasing, finance, and development, as well as the President Award and the Broker of the Year. These last two awards were first added in 2008.
GWCAR recognizes several “Best in the Industry” firms in a variety of categories. GWCAR lists the best developer, landlord, and contractor of the year. In addition, GWCAR recognizes the best architecture and law firms of the year, the best moving company, the best furniture vendor, and the best overall development project.
In recognition of the accomplishments of individual agents, GWCAR lists the top performers by sector and by region. Sales and leasing agents are divided into Maryland, Virginia, D.C., and regional categories, with 10 individuals honored in each group. Drawing attention to noteworthy transactions, GWCAR also lists the year’s top sales, leasing, and finance transactions in each region.
