Brady Stevens Award

Brady Stevens Award

The Brady Stevens Award is presented annually to the preceding year’s outstanding graduate of the REALTOR® Institute.

In 1977, the association established the award in affectionate memory of longtime Joplin REALTOR® and 1963 Missouri REALTORS® President, Brady Stevens. For many years Mr. Stevens led the statewide effort to develop and promote truly professional real estate education. He believed that members who promoted professionalism in real estate practice, actively participated in REALTOR® organization affairs and devoted themselves to ongoing professional development, should receive special recognition. The Brady Stevens Award honors graduates of the REALTOR® Institute who conduct their professional lives in the spirit of that tradition.

To be eligible, you must have obtained your GRI Designation between 5/1/2023 – 4/31/2024.

The deadline to apply for the 2024 Brady Stevens Award is June 1, 2024.
