Karl Larsen, a Realtor in the Ruhl&Ruhl Iowa City office, has been awarded the Newcomer of the Year by the Iowa City Area Association of Realtors.
"Karl earned and deserves this award as there is no harder worker," said Travis Hiatt, Managing Broker of the Ruhl&Ruhl Realtors Iowa City office. "I'm very proud of what he's done with himself and his business."
Formally a paralegal in the US Army, Larsen joined Ruhl&Ruhl Realtors and the real estate business in 2013.
"I became a realtor for a variety of reasons," said Larsen. "Creating my own business with my own schedule and having the potential for future financial freedom were the main positives. I just knew it was the right thing to do."
Voted on or selected by his peers, the "Newcomer of the Year" award is given to the real estate associate that exhibits high standards of professionalism and is involved and participates in the organization.
"It is a huge honor to be selected by peers to receive this award," said Larsen. "Although I still have a long way to go, it helps me validate my work and my decision to make real estate a career and selecting Ruhl&Ruhl."
