Can my team an Agent of the Year Award?

We’re just getting started and for the 2021 awards, we’ll be considering each individual agent separately — even if they’re part of a Rockstar team like yours. Starting next year, we’ll be offering a different setup for teams.

We hope this doesn’t discourage you or your teammates. If anything, it gives each individual agent and team member a chance to build up their own repository of reviews (and the SEO that goes with them). Plus, if you’re really a powerhouse… you and your team could work to claim more than one spot in your statewide rankings!
