Fitzgerald wins state Realtors award

WALTHAM — Corinne Fitzgerald of Northfield, broker/owner of Fitzgerald Real Estate in Greenfield, has been named the 2018 recipient of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors’ Private Property Rights Award.

Fitzgerald received the award at the association’s annual Realtor Day event that took place at the Massachusetts State House in June.

“Corinne Fitzgerald’s commitment to homeownership and private property rights has led her to donate countless hours volunteering for this organization at the local, state and federal level,” said 2018 association President Rita Coffey. “Until homeowners have their own professional trade association, Corinne’s work — and that of other Realtors like her — is invaluable in ensuring the rights associated with owning, possessing and transferring real property.”

A Realtor since 1986, Fitzgerald has been a director with the statewide organization since 1999 and has been a member of the Executive Committee in various positions almost every year since 2003.
