CONGRATULATIONS to the following Calcagni Associates realtors who received the Quarterly Achievement Award by the Greater New Haven Association of Realtors (GNHAR) for the 4th Sales Quarter of 2011. The award is given to Realtors who secure a minimum of nine completed sales within a quarter of each year.
JOAN LUNA ZAYAS, REALTOR
Congrats on your FIRST (and certainly not last) achievement award!
Joan, a licensed Realtor since 2008, resides in Meriden and specializes in the Central Connecticut area and beyond. She speaks Spanish fluently and is proud to be a bilingual Realtor. In addition to real estate sales, Joan also works for Calcagni Associates’ REO Department, coordinating all aspects of listing and sales of bank-owned properties and foreclosures. She is also a Connecticut Notary Public and a member of the Greater New Haven Board of Realtors, Connecticut Association of Realtors, and National Association of Realtors.
Earning the sales achievement award has been a goal of Joan’s since obtaining her real estate license, and she dedicates this honor to her former colleague and mentor, Patricia Uvino, who recently passed away from an illness. “Patty always motivated and encouraged me to get my real estate license- ever since I was an administrative assistant in our Wallingford office, back in 2003,” said Joan “I am sure she is looking down at me, smiling.”
