On Sept. 14, at the 2017 Idaho REALTORS® (IR) annual member convention, Carey Farmer was awarded the Idaho REALTOR® of the Year (ROTY) Award. Carey is the 56th recipient of this prestigious award and will now represent Idaho at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) REALTOR® of the Year ceremonies.
“Carey exemplifies what a “REALTOR®” means,” said Isaac Chavez, CEO of the Idaho REALTORS®, “She performs at the highest level of real estate and yet still manages to give so much back to her association and community. I wish we could duplicate Carey a hundred times over!”
The REALTOR® of the Year committee consists of four immediate past ROTYs and the selection is based on a criterion that includes civic activities, business & educational accomplishments, local board activities, state association activities and national association activities.
Farmer, a licensed REALTOR since 2003, is currently a broker associate at Group One Sothesby’s International Realty. She is on numerous boards and committees at the local, state and national level.
