Mortgage 1 Senior Loan Officer Adam Fuller was recently recognized by the Grand Rapids Greater Regional Alliance of Realtors (GRAR) with their Affiliate Service Award for 2020.
The award is bestowed upon Affiliate Members for outstanding service to GRAR and its membership through support of the local real estate community, a positive reputation and strong business relationships, volunteerism to GRAR, event sponsorships/participation, educational or networking offerings, and/or other exceptional contributions.
Adam was surprised with the award at the Mortgage 1 Grand Rapids branch offices on Dec. 11, 2020. In the video above, the surprise presentation starts at 2:45, followed by a few comments from Adam.
Here is how the GRAR described choosing Adam as this year’s award winner.
“Each year we recognize a Member with the Affiliate Service Award. Affiliate Members are our service partners who play a critical role in real estate transactions. The Affiliate Service Award is bestowed upon a member for outstanding service to GRAR and the real estate community, a positive reputation, strong business relationships, volunteerism, event participation, providing networking opportunities, and other exceptional contributions.
“This year’s winner, Adam Fuller, is a senior loan originator and friend to many within our GRAR membership. Admittedly, we were surprised to realize he has been a member of GRAR for just a few short years since he has already made such a positive and lasting impact upon our organization.
“Adam Fuller graduated from GRARLA, our leadership academy in 2019, where he formed close bonds with 19 other real estate professionals through monthly activities over the course of a year. He has served on our Community Involvement Committee for the past three years and was Chairperson of that Committee this year.
“His generous spirit is evidenced in all that he does. For instance, when his Committee discovered that many of our local schools were struggling to pay for expenses that fell outside of their yearly budgets, he spearheaded a campaign to offer assistance, presented it to the GRAR Board of Directors with an incredible combination of detail and enthusiasm, and has championed the program ever since.
“To date, over $4,200 has been gifted to local schools. Those funds have been used to cover unpaid lunch accounts, provide winter clothing and boots so that children may enjoy recess time, cover the cost of hygiene products and school supplies, share afternoon snacks, and much more.
“Adam has also helped organize, and participated himself, in GRAR’s annual challenge days where members serve their local communities through volunteer activities at Home Repair Services and local schools and save lives by donating blood. He is a regular attendee at GRAR events and is quick to sponsor those events too.
“Simply put, he is the one that can be counted on to show up with a smile, pitch in without complaint, and make things happen.”
