Special Recognition Awards | DMAR Inaugural 2019
Congratulations to the award winners from this year's DMAR Inaugural. You have impressed us with your outstanding contributions to the Association and the community at large this past year, and beyond.
REALTOR® of the Year - Scott Grossman
Scott has had an impressive career as a REALTOR® and has been very involved in the Association at the leadership level, having served as a DMAR Director, Chairman of our Board and a CAR Director. He has previously served on a Board-appointed task force and has been instrumental in starting, and leading, discussions regarding the merger of REcolorado and Iris as well. He has also served as Chair of our Community Alliance Committee, which is a group he is not only part of, but actually helped to start. It is focused on inclusivity, fair housing, affordable housing and diversity. He is continuously recognized and respected as a leader, not only at DMAR, but in our entire real estate community. From more of a personal standpoint, he partners with his wife in a very successful real estate team and is a proud parent of two. He is also on a mission to climb all 58 fourteeners in Colorado. It is with great honor that we present him with the 2019 REALTOR® of the Year award!
