Ardyth Hafer, a Realtor with LA Real Estate Group in Los Alamos, is New Mexico’s 2008  Realtor of the Year. The Realtor’s Association of New Mexico’s (RANM), honored Hafer at an awards ceremony during the RANM Annual Conference at Sandia Resort and Casino on Sept. 12 in Albuquerque.

The annual RANM Realtor of the Year is awarded to an outstanding leader who has committed time, talent and expertise to the Realtor organization, their community, and to furthering the real estate profession.

“It was such a total surprise, there are so many local Realtor of the Year awardees that you sort of think, ‘It’s never going to happen to me’,” Hafer said. “I felt total joy … I was absolutely thrilled.”

The award was kept secret from Hafer until it was announced at the beginning of the ceremony.

Her two daughters, their husbands and her two granddaughters came walking out when her name was announced, leaving her in a stunned state of shock for a moment, she said.

“This is such a huge deal in the Realtor industry and my kids know how involved I’ve been for so many years,” Hafer said. “They said they wouldn’t have missed it for the world.”
