Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, a leading provider of real estate services in Utah, announced today that Lisa Radke, an agent in the company’s Union Heights office in Midvale, has received the Rookie of the Year Award by the company and by the Salt Lake Board of Realtors.
Radke was recognized for her sales accomplishments, involvement in professional organizations, and work in the community with non-profit groups, including Christmas in July at The Road Home.
“We’re really proud of Lisa and excited by her success in winning these honors,” said Leah Krueger, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Union Heights office. “She’s very professional, but also very friendly and easy to work with. She works hard and is so enthusiastic about helping her clients find that perfect home. She’s done remarkably well in her career in just a short time.”
The rookie of the year award is one of the highest honors Coldwell Banker and SLBOR award annually. Radke said she was surprised by the recognition. “I really was not expecting it, especially with all the great competition,” she said. “I’m very honored – and still in a state of shock!”
Radke has lived in the Salt Lake Valley for more than 20 years. She worked many years as an executive assistant before attaining her real estate license in early 2009. That background has helped make her detail-oriented, as well as taught her the importance of outstanding customer service.
Although she enjoys working with all clients, Radke said she especially likes helping first-time buyers. “I love interacting with people and helping to make a difference, especially with young couples who are struggling to get into that first home,” she said. “I know how hard that can be and it’s really rewarding when we can make that happen.”
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Union Heights office is located at 7730 Union Park Ave, Suite 600, and can be reached at 801.567.4000. Radke may be reached directly at 801.244-4441 or via e-mail at lisa.radke@UtahHomes.com.
