CORFAC Awards: Rewarding Excellence

CORFAC International recognizes our family members twice a year with the following recognition programs:

COR$TAR Awards (Individual and Firm Awards): Awards are given to top referring brokers and billing brokers for referral transactions in the following categories: Largest Dollar Value and Largest Square Footage in the Office, Industrial, Retail and Investment/Other Categories. The individual broker with the most number of CORFAC referrals and the firm with most number of referrals in the previous year are also honored.

Charlie King MVP Award (Individual Award): This award is given to an individual nominated by CORFAC's current President who exemplifies "Devoted and Exceptional Service to CORFAC International." The President's selection recognizes the "most valuable player" for his/her term as president, or a person who over time has made substantial contributions to the development of CORFAC.

Olen Monsees Award (Individual Award): Olen Monsees (1940-2012), was President of Karbank Real Estate Company/CORFAC International in Kansas City, MO, and a CORFAC colleague since 1989. Olen was an iconic figure in the Kansas City real estate brokerage community. He distinguished himself with his plain spoken wisdom, quiet dignity and low-key manner. His focus was always to get the job done properly, without complaint. The Olen Monsees Award recognizes an individual member who goes above and beyond the call of duty without being asked and is considered an "unsung hero" of the network.

Thomas B. Hayes, Jr. Award (Individual Award): Historically awarded in recognition of technology innovation and sharing of best practices, the Thomas B. Hayes, Jr. Award was expanded in 2012 to include all creativity and innovation within CORFAC. Nominees have shared innovative and creative ideas relevant to commercial real estate brokerage with the entire network. The award was established in 2003 to honor the late Tom Hayes, who, as a Principal of Integrated Corporate Property Services/CORFAC International, was consistently on the cutting edge of technology and routinely shared his knowledge with CORFAC colleagues.

Steven H. Podolsky International Member of the Year Award (Individual Award): The Steven Podolsky International Member of the Year award recognizes an outstanding international member (outside of the U.S.) who goes above and beyond the call of duty without being asked while expanding the visibility, collaboration and reach of CORFAC globally. This award is named in honor of Steven H. Podolsky, SIOR, of Podolsky Circle/CORFAC International, for his strategic implementation, commitment, dedication and outstanding service in growing the International affiliates of CORFAC. Steve chaired the International Committee during a crucial re-building stage and gave selflessly of his time. He is also a founding member of CORFAC International.
