•La Jolla Realtor receives 2012 REBA award: Vicki Robb of the La Jolla Willis Allen office was this year’s recipient of the prestigious McNaught-Davis/Knox award given by the La Jolla Real Estate Brokers’ Association (REBA).

Since 1962, the REBA award committee (consisting of previous award recipients) annually reviews the nominations submitted by the REBA membership and selects the one candidate who best exemplifies the principles of personal integrity, cooperation, salesmanship and community activity.

“The award is given once a year to the member who best characterizes the Golden Rule, and that follows the ethics of the real estate profession,” said Todd Bloom, award committee chairman, “and that works at a very high professional level, cooperating in every aspect to accomplish a satisfactory transaction for the principal and the buyer ... Vicki is a great representation of what this award was created for.”

REBA was established in 1924 to promote communication and cooperation among brokers and agents in La Jolla and San Diego. Every year, hundreds of millions of dollars worth of homes are bought and sold with the assistance of REBA member agents.
