Weston Agent Wins REALTOR Spirit Award.

BOSTON, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Joanne Taranto, a sales agent at Gibson Sotheby's International Realty in Weston, was presented with the REALTOR Spirit Award at the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS (GBAR) Annual Awards Brunch held on June 18 at The Museum of Science in Boston. Taranto's can-do attitude and loyalty, honesty, and dependability with both colleagues and consumers makes her a deserving recipient of this honor.

The REALTOR Spirit Award was created to acknowledge the unsung heroes of the REALTOR organization. These individuals pay much attention to their business, where they make a difference in the lives of their colleagues, clients, and customers. They have strong professional ethics, a cooperative spirit, and a willingness to share personal knowledge, industry experience, and personal time to help others succeed in their careers.

Self-motivated, customer service oriented, and results-driven, Taranto excels at effectively listening, communications, and counseling buyers and sellers, as well as younger REALTORS seeking professional advice as they begin their real estate careers. Most notably, she has set aside personal time to help mentor new sales associates in her office - teaching them how to develop a business plan, assisting with implementation of marketing and prospecting strategies, and coaching them on the nuances of negotiations.

"I feel grateful to be a part of such a tremendous organization. Being honored with this year's Spirit Award has been followed by a huge outpouring of support from the REALTOR community. I'm looking forward to continuing my journey in real estate and volunteering within GBAR to raise the bar of professionalism in our industry," Taranto said.

Joanne serves on the Boards of Directors for GBAR and Massachusetts Association of REALTORS, as well as on several committees on both the local and state level. In 2011, she was selected as a member of REALTOR Magazine's "30 Under 30" class of young professionals who've achieved industry success before the age of 30.

The Greater Boston Association of REALTORS is a private trade association with more than 6,000 REALTOR members who specialize in residential real estate in Eastern Massachusetts. GBAR is the largest of five divisions of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB), and a local chapter of the Massachusetts and National Associations of REALTORS (NAR). REALTOR is a federally-registered trademark reserved exclusively for members of NAR.
