MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Dec. 10, 2021 – Jim Young, senior vice president, regional manager and director of agent development, was honored with the Emma L. Rovick Memorial Award at a Dec. 8 event.
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.
Young joined Edina Realty in 1996 and has held several positions with the company, including as a sales manager and broker. He works in Edina Realty’s corporate office on France Avenue, where he advises managers and agents all over Minnesota and Wisconsin. He’s known for his hard work, commitment and dedication to the company.
“Jim Young is one of our most dedicated leaders at Edina Realty, so it’s not a surprise he gets nominated for the Emmy Award year after year,” said Greg Mason, CEO of Edina Realty Home Services. “He has been integral to our company for more than two decades, and his leadership throughout the challenges of the past two years has been irreplaceable.”
Young’s nomination read: “Jim will take on all challenges. He is continually helping and educating our agents to help them all be better. He strives to help all of us be better.”
Each year, Edina Realty agents and employees nominate their colleagues for the Emmy Award, and out of 43 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.
