The Louis Smadbeck Memorial Broker Recognition Award

This member award was established in 1991 by REBNY’s Commercial Brokerage Divisions; it honors a REBNY broker with personal and professional integrity, long-term leadership and prominence in the brokerage community and participation in REBNY’s committees.

Named for an exemplary broker who died shortly after being selected to receive it, the award is presented at REBNY’s Annual Banquet.
