Meet the 30 Under 30 Class of 2019

March 25, 2019

There is a well-known Japanese proverb that says, “Fall seven times and stand up eight.” Many of this year’s 30 Under 30 applicants embody that idea. They’ve been knocked down in their real estate businesses or by personal circumstances, but they have found a way to get right back up and press forward.

Resilient is one word that accurately characterizes REALTOR® Magazine’s 2019 Class of 30 Under 30. Nearly 300 young real estate professionals applied for the honor this year—some for their third or fourth time. The candidates seem to be more and more qualified each year, making it a difficult task to narrow the field.

In early March, a panel of judges selected 50 finalists. Then, during the week-long Web Choice Award voting period from March 15–22, members of the public cast a total of 16,444 votes (beating last year's total of 15,637) in the contest. With 1,110 votes, Holli Mendica, ABR, SRES, a sales associate with RE/MAX Results in St. Louis, came out on top, guaranteeing her a spot in this year’s 30 Under 30. Learn more about Mendica and how she rallied her voters in a REALTOR® Magazine online article slated to be published in April.

Judges selected the other 29 honorees from the field of finalists, and 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. We hope that those applicants who did not make it will “stand up” and reapply next year—or throw their determination into their next big challenge.

 

 

Now REALTOR® Magazine is proud to announce the 2019 Class of 30 Under 30.
