Manchester’s Julie Citron was named Vermont Realtors “Realtor of the Year” for 2017 during an awards ceremony held at Middlebury College on Nov. 8. The award honors real estate professionals from across the state who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership as members of their community.
Citron is the co-owner of RE/MAX Four Seasons in Manchester, and is also a member of the South Central Vermont Board of Realtors (SCVBR). According to the Vermont Realtors organizaton, both Citron and her husband Dave manage their brokerage following strict business principles.
“We always strive to do what is in the best interest of our clients and customers — care and disclosure — while following the Realtors Code of Ethics including obedience, responsibility, and accountability,” Citron said.
Citron served as President of the South Central Vermont Board of Realtors in 2015, leading a revision of the board’s policies and procedures. From 2013 to 2014 Citron served as SCVBR’s first Community Outreach Chair, helping to spearhead the board’s success in community giving. Since that time, she has been involved with SCVBR’s holiday basket and toy drives, collecting 20 to 30 baskets each year. Those baskets are then donated to families in need. Before her term as Community Outreach Chair for SCVBR, Citron served as the organization’s “Race for the Cure” Chair from 2007 to 2009, for which she was awarded SCVBR’s “Full Plate Award” in 2008. The realtor has also led the board’s involvement in Manchester’s Maple Leaf Half Marathon since 2014, in addition to volunteering at the local Habitat for Humanity Resale Store.
Citron has also been involved in leadership roles with the Dorset Players, the Dorset Parent Volunteers, and served on the Christian Education Board of the Dorset Church.
