C.G. Boyce Real Estate Co.’s President and Broker Toby Boyce, MBA, GRI, CREM, SFR, is among the initial 300 members – out of National Association of Realtors® 1.3 million members – to earn the Commitment to Excellence endorsement.

C.G. Boyce Real Estate Co named one of first 300 Commitment to Excellence Award Winners from National Association of Realtors.
Toby Boyce has been named a Commitment to Excellence honoree and is one of the first 300 in the nation.

The endorsement goes to Realtors® who have demonstrated knowledge and competency in ten core areas of real estate practice.

  1. Client service
  2. Professional reputation
  3. Real estate law
  4. Realtor® Code of Ethics
  5. Equal service to all (Article 10 of the Code)
  6. Advocacy of real property ownership
  7. Trust and integrity
  8. Use of technology
  9. Data privacy
  10. Areas of practice

Launched in November 2018, this innovative program sets the standard for what it means to be a professional in the real estate brokerage business.

The C2EX endorsement is available only to Realtors®. It is earned through a self-directed program that enables real estate professionals to assess and build on their competency in each of the core areas. As a broker, in addition to demonstrating competency in all 10 areas, Boyce was required to show a commitment to creating and maintaining an environment that promotes excellent customer service consistent with these standards.

Earning the Commitment to Excellence endorsement is a true accomplishment and an affirmation to consumers that you stand for ethics and professionalism in your work

2019 NAR President John Smaby

“Earning the Commitment to Excellence endorsement is a true accomplishment and an affirmation to consumers that you stand for ethics and professionalism in your work,” says 2019 NAR President John Smaby. “Advances in technology and online user experience are making our business more and more seamless, and that’s fantastic,” Smaby says, “But with new technology can come vulnerabilities. A C2EX endorsement offers consumers the ease of mind that they have a skilled adviser, committed to conducting business at the highest standards, helping them through what may be the largest purchase or sale in their life.”

The National Association of Realtors® is America’s largest trade association, representing over 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

K. Hovanian Builders Creates Land-Matching Program

Land-Matching Program Begins in Pittsburgh

Home builders continue to get more aggressive in this market where there isn’t enough homes for sale and they can’t build fast enough to meet demand. The latest proof is the Land-Matching Program at K. Hovnanian Homes.

“Everyone wants to build the home they’ve always wanted, but not everyone has a piece of land to build it on,” said Joel Lazar, director of sales and marketing at K. Hovnanian Homes’ Build On Your Lot division in a recent press release. “To help bridge that gap, we developed this innovative new program to match homeowners with a home site. This is a complimentary service that we offer with no strings attached. Whether you are looking for a peaceful countryside setting or a bustling cityscape, there is an ideal piece of land that’s just right for you. Let’s match you to it, then let’s build on it together.”

My favorite part is this exact process was essentially outlined to me by a K. Hovanian associate at the Delaware model-center about five years ago when we were discussing options for a mutual customer. K. Hovanian is in the business of building homes and this marketing effort is a nice tool to assist in the purchase of the land and building the house together in a single-mortgage (I assume).

“From selections and financing all the way to move-in day and beyond, we promise to be by your side every step of the way,” said Lazar. “K. Hovnanian® Homes is committed to quality and takes great pride in delivering a 100 percent complete, inspected and move-in ready home. We also provide thorough New Home Orientations by knowledgeable New Home Professionals once the process is complete.”
