After 16 years in the real estate business, Pam Featherstone has been recognized for her contributions.

Featherstone, a Realtor with Network Realty who is moving to Semonin Realty, was awarded the title of Realtor of the Year from the Heart of Kentucky Association of Realtors.

Featherstone has been in real estate since 1995, and involved on the board of the association for the past several years, including serving as board president for the past year.

Featherstone said real estate always has been an interest of hers, and she finally decided to change careers after working in sales. Many family members worked in industries that served others and she wanted to do the same. She enjoys helping buyers find a new home.

“I love helping first-time home buyers,” she said.

She started working with the board “because I volunteer with anything I can,” she said. She works to educate new agents and feels they need someone to be a mentor to them.

She received the award at the beginning of December at the annual banquet for the installation of the new leadership roles on the board. As president, she was leading the evening, but had no idea she was the recipient of the award, which is selected by a committee.

“Because I was doing most of the talking that night, I was practically speechless,” Featherstone said.

She also received an award for her work with the education of Realtors as well.

Featherstone said even being considered for the award is an achievement, as it is chosen by colleagues.

“I’m a little flabbergasted they picked me,” she said.
