The Residential Brokerage Division Deal of the Year Sales & Rental Awards

The Residential Brokerage Division has presented annual Deal of the Year awards since 1988. Winners of these awards show creativity or ingenuity in overcoming unique obstacles to make a successful deal. The Division also bestows the Henry Forster Award upon a broker whose career accomplishments and personal conduct bring credit to the entire residential brokerage community. These awards are presented at the Annual Residential Brokerage Division's Deal of the Year Charity Gala. Since 1989, proceeds from this event have been donated through the REBNY Foundation toward charities that support a variety of causes, including housing and/or social services for the city's homeless. The following charities have received money to continue their work:
