On Dec. 18, we started a recap of the noteworthy recognition Illinois REALTORS® received during the year because of the significant ways they impacted their colleagues, their communities and the marketplace.

On a daily basis, we’ve provided links to some of the stories about REALTORS® who made a difference in their Illinois communities. Today, we’ll wrap up those stories with Jean Crosby, a recipient of the 2015 NAR Distinguished Service Award. It is “considered the highest honor an NAR member can receive.”

Crosby, a partner and owner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Crosby Starck Real Estate in Rockford, Ill., has been a REALTOR® for 32 years.

To read more about Crosby and her career, which includes being IAR president in 1999, read the May IAR story or the NAR news release following a November reception the REALTOR® Conference & Expo in San Diego.
