Congratulations, 2018 Class of 30 Under 30

March 26, 2018

Success is a winding path no matter what phase of life you’re in, but reaching great heights before the age of 30 is a feat worthy of recognition.

The more than 300 young real estate professionals who applied to become part of the 2018 class of 30 Under 30 have put their hearts and souls into their careers, which is why it’s no easy task to narrow the field down to the final group of honorees. Their dedication to improving the industry and helping clients is second to none, and we applaud each and every applicant.

Earlier this month, a panel of judges selected 50 finalists—and now REALTOR® Magazine is proud to announce the 30 Under 30 class of 2018. This group illustrates the most stellar traits in customer service, community involvement, and business acumen; their positive energy is contagious and motivating. From San Francisco to Washington, D.C., these salespeople, team members, team leaders, and broker-owners are ushering in a new era for the real estate industry, unapologetically standing up for their professional passions. This year’s honorees show that authenticity is the new standard for exceptional service.

In addition, you—our readers—cast 15,637 votes in the Web Choice Award competition from March 16–23. REALTOR® Magazine is pleased to announce the winner: Topping the list of 50 finalists with a total of 1,372 votes is Brie Stephens, leader of the Lake Life Realty team at Keller Williams Lakes and Mountains Realty in Meredith, N.H. In an article next week, you can learn more about Stephens and how she collected so many votes. Additionally, readers will be able to learn more about all 30 young professionals when their full profiles are published in the May/June issue of REALTOR® Magazine.
