NAR Presents Ken Libby with Service Award

Ken Libby

SAN FRANCISCO (November 11, 2019) – Ken Libby, a Realtor® from Stowe, Vermont, received the National Association of Realtors® 2019 Distinguished Service Award. The honor is presented yearly to no more than two of NAR's 1.4 million members. Winners were recognized at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco. 

NAR established the award in 1979 to honor Realtors® who have made outstanding contributions to the real estate industry and who serve as leaders in their local communities. It is considered the highest honor an NAR member can receive; recipients must be active at the local, state and national association levels, but must not have served as NAR president.

“It is my privilege to present the Distinguished Service Award to Ken Libby. His long history of service to the real estate industry, his community and our country is remarkable’, said NAR President John Smaby, a second-generation Realtor® from Edina, Minnesota. 

“Our industry and our nation are better because of Ken’s service to his fellow Realtors® and countrymen.”
