While the real estate market continues to struggle, one local realtor managed to shine in 2009. Amy Shocket, REALTOR® with Dickson Realty, was recognized by both the Reno Sparks Association of REALTORS® and the Northern Nevada Women’s Council of REALTORS® this year.

The Reno Sparks Association of Realtors (RSAR) presented Shocket with the Matt Gibbons Memorial Award at their annual dinner this past November. The award was in recognition of her service to RSAR, her high ethical standards, professional accomplishments and volunteer service to the community.

Shocket was also honored by the Northern Nevada Chapter of Women’s Council of REALTORS® last month. During the group’s annual installation of new officers, Shocket was named the 2009 Member of the Year. The award recognizes an outstanding member who has exhibited dedication and service to the chapter.

A truly committed professional, Shocket has earned numerous professional designations during her career including Accredited Buyer Representative, NAR’s Green, and Certified Residential Specialist. She is a Graduate of the REALTOR® Institute, Performance Management Network, and Nevada Association of REALTORS® Leadership Academy. To better serve her customers during these challenging times, Shocket earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert designation and became a member of the Nevada Association of REALTORS® Foreclosure Prevention Taskforce.

Originally from Southern California, Amy Shocket has been a Sparks resident since 1995. She is very active in the local real estate community, currently serving on the RSAR Board of Directors, as chair of the RSAR Education Committee and is a former president of the Northern Nevada Chapter of Women’s Council of Realtors.
