Member Recognition

Extraordinary REALTORS® in the community and industry

North Shore REALTORS® recognizes the exceptional people that help make our association a leading real estate resource. We appreciate the contributions of those that are not only active in the business but committed to the community.

We couldn’t do it without you!

NSR celebrates the accomplishments of REALTORS® and Community members for their contributions to the industry, community, and housing. Congratulations to our 2020-2021 Award Recipients, thank you for all that you do!

REALTOR® OF THE YEAR

Presented annually, the NSR REALTOR® of the Year award recognizes one REALTOR® for outstanding contribution and participation in activities that promote and advance the industry and community at large over the past eighteen months. Each year the winner’s credentials are forwarded to the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® to be in the running to be named state REALTOR® of the Year, an honor that is recognized at the National REALTORS® convention in November.

Our REALTOR® of the year for 2022 is Timothy Shea. Read Timothy’s profile below to learn more about his significant contributions to the real estate industry and to our organization.

The North Shore REALTORS® (NSR) recognizes Timothy Shea, Keller Williams Realty Evolution, Beverly as the 2022 NSR REALTOR® of the Year. The announcement was made by NSR’s 2022 President Karen Hanson at the NSR June Education Event & Expo on June 16th.

Our winner this year answered the call in a way that will shape NSR for years to come. In 2021, our association experienced one of the largest changes an association can, the loss of a long-time AE. Tim was integral in the new CEO search and piloting NSR during this period of massive change.

It was not only navigating change, but also adding vision to our future. Tim led the charge during the creation of our 3-year Strategic Plan and is now leading efforts to redefine how we offer new member orientation. He has been integral in shaping how NSR communicates, what our communication looks like, and how we leverage the advantages of our virtual platforms.

At the same time, Tim spearheaded the merger of 6 office locations into one new rebranded market center, assisted agents with a major technology platform switch, and engaged in their community through Keller Williams Red Day and KW Cares.

Congratulations to Timothy Shea, our 2022 NSR REALTOR® of the Year! The Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® will honor Tim, along with recipients from other local associations, at its Professional Awards Reception in September.

During the COVID lockdown they made up hundreds of lawn signs with the quote “Apart but Together” which were placed all over Ipswich. She organized cheer caravan parades and recognized the good seen in her community by sending thank you notes and gifting ice cream and coffee to people doing and sharing kind things. She is also a recipient of the MAR Gratitude Project Award.
