Real estate agents who have joined the Board in the last two years are eligible for the Rookie of the Year Award. This prestigious award is only given to a REALTOR® that has made outstanding contributions in the local community and real estate industry. During his short time as a member of the Tri-Lakes Board of REALTORS® it has become quite evident that Matthew has an outstanding work ethic and a desire to succeed. This is not only evident in his competitive spirit to excel as a REALTOR®, but also in his dedication to community.
Matthew says, “I am extremely honored to receive this award, following in the footsteps of some of the most highly respected in our industry. Real estate offers many different ways for me to follow my passion to serve the community, and this award is a reflection of that “.
Having an interest to continue to learn and grow, Matthew is currently working toward earning his GRI designation and obtaining his broker’s license. Matthew is proud to call the Ozarks home and loves all the area has to offer. Matthew and his wife, Jessica, enjoy hiking, golfing and visiting the local area lakes and attractions.
No other real estate company in Southwest Missouri has produced more Rookie of the Year recipients than Gerken & Associates in Branson, Missouri. Matthew now joins the ranks of other Rookie of the Year recipients from Gerken & Associates including Alex Webster (2017), Rachel Gerken (2015), Brent Sager (2013), Jon Holloway (2008), and Charlie Gerken (2006).
Matthew continues, “I’m thankful every day for my Gerken & Associates family; I wouldn’t have gotten this far without each and every one of them. My career is only just beginning and I look forward to what tomorrow brings!”.
