NCR Annual Awards

The North Carolina REALTORS® takes great pride in honoring the best in the real estate industry each fall at its Annual Convention.


REALTOR® of the Year Award
The NCR REALTOR® of the Year award was the first of its type in the country. The award, which is presented annually at the NCR Convention, is known as the Clendenin Cup. The Clendenin Cup was donated by the late Kemp C. Clendenin, Sr., of Greensboro in honor of several late REALTOR® members of the Clendenin family. The award is now also presented in memory of Mr. Clendenin. Since its inception in 1950, every state association has adopted a similar program.


Ben Ball Community Service Award
This program is designed to recognize REALTORS® at the local Board and state levels for their continuing contributions to the betterment of their communities through outstanding public service. One recipient is selected each year, but an award does not have to be presented regardless of the number of nominations.


REALTOR® Hall of Fame Award
The prestigious NCR Hall of Fame Award was established in 1990 as a Lifetime Achievement Award to honor outstanding REALTORS® who have contributed and continue to contribute persistent, outstanding service to our profession in the areas of development, environment or government, and/or leadership which have an enduring effect upon the real estate profession. One recipient is selected each year, however an award does not have to be presented regardless of the number of nominations.


REALTOR® Regional Service Award
The NCR Regional Service Award Program was developed to recognize those REALTORS® in each NCR Region who have contributed to and continue to serve their local Board, community and NCR. All REALTOR® members are eligible to compete for the award, except the current NCAR officers. Only one award can be presented for each NCR Region, however, an award does not have to be presented regardless of the number of nominations.
