J. Philip Real Estate Agents of Honor Awards Program Recipients
J. Philip Real Estate, an independent real estate brokerage based in Briarcliff Manor, has established a quarterly Agents of Honor awards program to recognize its salespersons and associate brokers who have made a notable contribution to the brokerage and its employees, have displayed outstanding service within their communities, or have achieved a high level of personal success.
Recipients of the award are selected by members of J. Philip Real Estate’s Agent Leadership Council (ALC). One agent in each of the brokerage’s three offices – Briarcliff, Pelham and Mahopac — will be selected each quarter.
To kick off its Agents of Honor program, the ALC chose to recognize four agents, including:
Mary Kingsley, Pelham Office—Kingsley is a member of the Mount Vernon Charter Revision Commission, which is responsible for reviewing and reworking the city’s charter. A dedicated community advocate, she is committed to improving the lives of Mount Vernon residents, the company states.
Patti Kirk-Byrne, Mahopac—In addition to being a J. Philip Real Estate salesperson, Kirk-Byrne is a CT SCAN technician at Good Samaritan Hospital, where she has worked courageously and selflessly with patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Shaun Manning, Briarcliff—A consistent top sales producer, Manning smoothly completed a $1.8-million-dollar deal from listing to close in less than eight weeks. Every facet of the deal was handled expertly, so that both her client and the buyers were exceptionally pleased with the outcome, the brokerage reported.
Kelly Molloy, Mahopac—When life threw Molloy an unexpected and difficult challenge, she rose above it, redirected her focus, and made a strategic plan. As a result, the real estate newcomer was able to secure five transactions within just one month.
“Our agents are not just great Realtors; they are great people,” said J. Philip Faranda, founder of J. Philip Real Estate. “Our new Agents of Honor reward program is our way of recognizing them for the great things they do within our company as well as the many ways they positively impact others’ lives.”
Jennifer Maher, broker and managing partner of the brokerage’s Putnam County office, added, “We commend each of these outstanding women, who are always looking to go the extra mile.”
Founded in 2005, J. Philip Real Estate serves all of Westchester and Putnam, as well as nearby Rockland, Orange, Dutchess, and Fairfield (CT) counties. The brokerage is also the exclusive Westchester member of Leverage Global Partners, the premier network of luxury real estate brokerages around the world.
