Kent realtor Kale Corey, of Keller Williams Realty, recently received the Young Professional Achievement Award at the Installation & Awards Banquet of Seattle King County REALTORS.

Corey was one of 11 individuals who were singled out for special honors by SKCR, a nonprofit professional trade association whose goals include promoting ethical business practices and supporting policies that preserve and expand real property rights and housing affordability.

Corey, a realtor since mid-2015. will serve a second term in 2019 as chair of SKCR’s Young Professionals Network (YPN). He also serves on the state association’s Young Professionals Board and as a Washington REALTORS state director. He was commended for the crucial roles he played in organizing YPN’s annual networking breakfast and in fundraising for this year’s YPN chosen charity, the The MoreLove Project, which connects the community to those in greatest need while teaching love and compassion.

The Dec. 10 banquet, at The Westin Bellevue, drew a sellout audience of more than 250 participants. They included SKCR members, affiliates and representatives from the Residential Real Estate Council, Women’s Council of REALTORS, and YPN.

The annual event also featured the installation ceremony for incoming leaders of SKCR and three other realtor organizations, and a raffle and dessert auction to benefit a scholarship foundation.

Audience members raised more than $10,000 for the Seattle First Citizen Scholarship Foundation, which awards grants to SKCR members and their families based on involvement in community service supporting the growth, health and betterment of communities within King County.
