Out & About - ARA Top Producers Gala

The Atlanta REALTORS® Top Producers Gala is a highly anticipated annual event that recognizes the fabulous ARA members and their successes throughout the year. Cook & James was thrilled to be a Platinum level partner for this glitzy, glamorous, black-tie celebration.

Held March 26 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, about 1,300 of ARA’s nearly 2,000 members came out for the Top Producers Gala including yours truly, along with my esteemed (and very well-dressed as you can find on ARA’s Facebook page) colleagues Jana Paterson, Bonnie Timms, and Rhett Jerrum.

We joined wholeheartedly as ARA bestowed kudos and celebrated top performing members, marked by volume of transactions and sales, metrics which are both established each year by the ARA Top Producers Committee and the Board of Directors. We may have also thrown a little bit of dancing, food and drinks, photos, and networking in there, too – including managing to snap a picture with everyone’s favorite, Madam President, Karen Hatcher.

She’s not only leading this impactful organization in 2022 but is also CEO and head broker at Sovereign Realty & Management …and a mom of three to boot.

We’re looking forward to the next ARA event to take place later this month. The Cook & James crew will be out in full force again for the ARA 2022 Social FUNdraiser, to be held at KR SteakBar. Not only are we anticipating a great time of networking, but we’re also hoping to help raise significant funds for the Covenant House of Georgia, an organization supporting at-risk youth. Hope to see you out and about soon. Meantime, follow us on social media to keep up with everything we have “Cook-ing.”
