The Buffalo Niagara Association of REALTORS Inc. presented a special award from the National Association of REALTORS to six members for 40 years of service to the real estate industry. The awards were presented at a luncheon at the Westwood Country Club earlier this month.
Honorees this year were Ann Diana Bishara from Bishara Realty; James Eagan from Gurney, Becker & Bourne; Joseph Jayson from Homemark Realty; and Beverly James, Joan Frank and Gerald Wright from Realty USA. Attending the event to share congratulations were 25 past award honorees.
