Francks Wins Magel Award

Washington Association of REALTORS® CEO Steve Francks, RCE, CAE, was named the winner of the William R. Magel Award of Excellence by the National Association of REALTORS® during its 2021 Legislative Meetings in May.

The prestigious award is presented annually to an individual who has excelled as a REALTOR® association executive and has an extensive record of participation, mentorship, and contributions.

Francks has served REALTORS® for more than 21 years with vision, enthusiasm, and integrity, WAR says, and has been recognized for his contributions and collaboration at a regional and national level. He has been involved extensively in NAR, including as 2011 NAR Association Executives Committee chair and as part of the Governance Game Changer PAG leadership team. He is a member of the Dr. Almon R. (Bud) Smith, RCE, AE Leadership Society.

“Steve exemplifies all that the William R. Magel Award was created to recognize,” Andrea Bushnell, CEO of the North Carolina Association of REALTORS®, says. “Through his passion and dedication to the industry and our members, Steve has gained a level of respect [that’s] rarely achieved. It is this achievement that the William R. Magel Award is meant to honor, and no one is more deserving.”
