Service Credit Opportunities for 2024

The purpose of the Distinguished Sales Society is to give recognition to REALTORS® who have participated in a total sales volume of $1,000,000 or more in eight or more closed transactions and have at least two Service Credits during any calendar year. The Savannah Area REALTORS® is a volunteer driven organization and depends on its volunteerism for survival. Distinguished Sales Society Service Credits are awarded for participation in sanctioned community service activities and Board events. 

REMEMBER, attending committee meetings does NOT count for a service credit.

Below is a list of opportunities for REALTORS® to receive service credits.
