Brad Williams named 2020 Emmy Award winner

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Dec. 10, 2020 – Brad Williams, a REALTOR® based in the Buffalo, Minnesota, office of Edina Realty, was honored with the Emma L. Rovick Memorial Award at a virtual event on Dec. 10.

Established to honor company founder Emma Rovick, the “Emmy” Award is given annually to two people: One employee and one real estate agent who exemplify Edina Realty Home Services’ core values of honesty, integrity, commitment, innovation and community.

Brad Williams joined Edina Realty in late 2015 and this spring will retire from a two-decade military career with the U.S. Army and the Army National Guard. Brad has turned his passion for the military and veterans into a successful career, and more than 90 percent of his business is for clients who are also veterans.

Brad’s nomination read in part: “He has the top traits of a fantastic agent. He is a problem solver, motivator, he is knowledgeable, pays attention to detail, is honest and has integrity, has an energetic personality, and a huge network of clients. Go Brad! You deserve this award. You are great in all you do.”

“Brad is a testament to the power of enthusiasm and integrity in the real estate process,” said Edina Realty President Sharry Schmid. “Brad’s clients, network and colleagues all sing his praises and keep coming back to work with him again and again.”

Brad resides in Minneapolis with his Catahoula Leopard Hound, Cookie.

Each year, Edina Realty agents and employees nominate their colleagues for the Emmy Award, and out of 51 nominees this year, one agent and one employee were selected. Award winners must excel in customer service, leadership, team building and/or make significant contributions to the industry.
