GREENSBORO, N.C. – A deserving Greensboro Regional REALTOR® just took home one of the profession’s most prestigious awards.

Sofia Crisp was named the recipient of the 2022 NC REALTORS® Ben Ball Community Service Award on Tuesday during the NC REALTORS® Convention & Expo in Cherokee NC.

Mrs. Crisp currently works as the Executive Director of the Housing Consultants Group and will be the GRRA President in 2023.

The purpose of the award is to honor a REALTOR® who deserves recognition due to their continuous and extraordinary contributions to the betterment of their communities through outstanding public service.
