The office of Rod Stirling and Della Fraser, owners of Coldwell Banker Northern Bestsellers of Yellowknife, has been named No. 1 Coldwell Banker office in North America in both adjusted gross commissions and unit sales for offices with one to 10 sales reps.

The Canadian Rookie of the Year in sales volume and unit sales was Molly Milligan of Coldwell Banker Northern Bestsellers. Originally from Yellowknife, Milligan left to pursue a career as a world-class snowboarder and Olympic hopeful for more than 10 years. She then returned to Yellowknife to launch her real estate career.

During a recent awards presentation, Andy Puthon, president of Coldwell Banker Canada, said Milligan “brings the discipline, drive and work ethic” she learned as a professional athlete to her real estate career. “Her early success in this industry is one of the noteworthy performances that helped drive her company to be ranked No. 1 in North America in its office size category.”

The Canadian Ambassador Award, presented to the individual who best exemplifies Coldwell Banker brand values, was awarded to Tracey Appleton of Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty in Kitchener/Waterloo, Ont.

“Tracey has been involved in several community service initiatives, including bringing Syrian refugee families to Canada, the company’s annual Trees for Toys drive and fire safety,” said Puthon. “She has been a director and vice-chair for Habitat for Humanity of the Waterloo Region…and is also a past president of the Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo region.”

He added that she has a long history of volunteer involvement in organized real estate and has attained professional credentials in a number of programs.

“Tracey has distinguished herself as a caring, talented and deeply committed individual, who exemplifies all that is best about the Coldwell Banker brand in Canada,” Puthon said.
