“I feel so very honored to have been awarded this very special REALTOR® Of the Year award. I never thought out of all the other wonderful hard-working REALTORS® nominated, I would be the REALTOR® chosen. I was blown away when they called my name. I’m pretty sure I was in shock. I feel so blessed that it still does not seem real. I can’t wait to attend the National Association of REALTORS® convention in Boston in November where I will get the opportunity to walk across the stage waving my state flag. I feel very honored to represent the great state of Arkansas along with other REALTORS® representing their state” says Amy Eden.
