Our close-knit family of agents and staff members are justifiably proud of our boss for earning two prestigious national business awards recently. Sandy Garner, president and CEO of Harcourts The Garner Group Real Estate, was honored for her success as an entrepreneur in founding and growing the Bend Oregon real estate company. Awards were:
Twelfth annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business, Female Entrepreneur of the Year in the Business Services category, silver award.
Fifth annual Best in Biz awards, Entrepreneur/Founder of the Year in Executive Categories, bronze award.
Stevie awards were created to honor and generate public recognition of working professionals worldwide. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is one of six programs divided by nation and business segment and designed to recognize the achievements of women executives, entrepreneurs and the organizations they run.
Best in Biz Awards offer 60 award categories across five focus areas. It is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
A veteran of 35 years in Central Oregon real estate, Sandy founded The Garner Group in Bend Oregon as an independent company in 2008. The company gained access to additional marketing, technology and training assets through a franchise affiliation with Harcourts International in 2014.
