Linda Sellman Named “Emmy” Award Winner

Kim Lewis Named 2015 Emmy Award WinnerEdina, Minn.— Dec. 13, 2017 – Linda Sellman, office administrator for the Edina Realty Apple Valley office, was honored with the Edina Realty Emma L. Rovick Memorial Award, or “Emmy,” on Dec. 12 at a special luncheon for the award winners.

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’s core values of honesty, integrity and commitment.

Sellman has been the office administrator in the Apple Valley office since 1993. She is described as being what positive looks like— she is supportive and helpful with a special sparkle. Sellman stays on top of everything and truly is the heartbeat of the office, going out of her way to make sure everyone—both agents and staff—have what they need to be happy and successful.

Outside of work, Sellman and her husband Todd are active in their 15-year-old son’s athletic teams and she sits on the Lakeville Hockey Association board. Their family also loves to spoil their rescue dog.

“Linda is an example of someone who lives out honesty, integrity and commitment in all aspects of her life. Her positive attitude makes her office and community a better place to be,” said Sharry Schmid, Edina Realty president.

Each year, Edina Realty agents and employees nominate their colleagues for the Emmy Award, and out of nearly 50 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 company or industry.
