Real Estate Professional Magazine has named a local realtor one of its Top 200 best agents.
Linda Baumgartner of RE/MAX North Country Realty was amongst those honoured this year.
“Being recognized as one of the top real estate agents by the REP Magazine is exciting. I feel honoured knowing that my commitment, hard work and dedication to my business and clients has been acknowledged,” Baumgartner told the Echo.
This is the third year that REP Magazine has published at Top 200 list, which it compiles using MLS, multiple listing service, data and online survey results. To make comparisons fair between agents across Canada, the magazine used number of transactions rather than overall sales volume, a press release states.
In Baumgartner’s 29 years in real estate, she has been active in many associations including the Ontario Real Estate Association, of which she was president in 2003. She’s also volunteered for years on its board of directors.
In 2004, she was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame and has received the lifetime achievement award from the company, according to REP Magazine.
“She attributes the significant increase in her business in 2016 to team restructuring and fully embracing the potential of video,” the magazine reads.
Last summer, the Echo featured a story about a video series she created with Positive Media called 30 Days of Summer, which profiles the many things to do in the Haliburton Highlands. That series followed a similar series titled 15 Days of Winter.
Baumgartner is also active in the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce, where she currently occupies the role of vice president.
