2020 New Jersey Realtors Realtor and Realtor-Associate of the Year Named

Trenton, N.J. (Dec. 14, 2020) — Last week, New Jersey Realtors named Gloria Monks, of Hamilton Square, 2020 Realtor of the Year and Leon "Lee" Burach, of Manalapan, 2020 Realtor-Associate of the Year during the New Jersey Realtors Awards Ceremony, a part of the 2020 New Jersey Realtors Virtual Conference.

Traditionally, award winners are recognized in-person at the annual Triple Play Realtor Convention & Trade Expo, but the ongoing pandemic forced the cancellation of the conference and the migration of the awards ceremony to a virtual platform.

"Our 58,000 plus members have a lot to be proud of this year and we applaud all of them, but it is also our honor to celebrate two exceptional New Jersey Realtors," said 2021 NJ Realtors President Jeff Jones. "This year's winners, Gloria and Lee, are dedicated Realtors and we are proud to recognize them and wish them congratulations on their achievements in the industry."

Monks and Burach were selected from the pool of local board and association Realtors and Realtor-Associates of the Year.
