*Voting is now closed. The Web Choice Award winner will be announced Monday, March 28. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote!
The competition was fierce among the nearly 400 30 Under 30 applicants, but the determination and accomplishments of the impressive finalist group separated them from the pack.
One finalist asks for referrals by delivering s'mores; another has been an entrepreneur since the age of 10; and another went from living in Section 8 housing to co-owning a real estate company. Their stories are inspiring, and their commitment to community, keen work ethic, and perseverance through adversity has landed them amongst today’s leading young industry professionals.
Now it’s time for our readers to help one of the 50 finalists win the Web Choice Award and land a spot in the 30 Under 30 class of 2016.

Members of the public can cast their votes beginning today at noon CT through next Friday, March 25, at noon CT. The system allows for each candidate to receive one vote a day per IP address during the voting period. The person receiving the most votes will become a 30 Under 30 honoree. The magazine’s panel of judges will select the remaining 29 honorees from the group of 50 finalists. Look for profiles of the 30 honorees in the May/June issue of REALTOR® Magazine.
Last year’s Web Choice Award winner, Kelly Henderson, who founded the Momentum Group with Keller Williams Biltmore Partners in Phoenix, used humorous memes to rally votes on Facebook. She also created a Facebook event to help remind her friends to vote daily and posted videos she shot with her networking groups to encourage voting.
