Sotheby’s Realty Agent Paula Goodwin Recognized for ‘Going the Extra Mile’

She receives the Howard Gates Award from the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors

Local Sotheby’s International Realty agent Paula Goodwin has been recognized for her outstanding work by the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors with the Howard Gates Award.

According to the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors, the Howard Gates Award is awarded to the agent who has been instrumental in bringing about a successful closing in an escrow that might not have closed without the agent’s effort. There is also consideration given to the agent’s proficiency, skill, ingenuity, determination, originality, thoroughness and ability to bring the transaction to fruition.

“Paula is very deserving of this recognition,” senior vice president and brokerage manager Greg Tice said. “She is dedicated to going the extra mile for her clients in every situation. Through hard work, flexibility and perseverance, she ensures that the escrow process is as smooth as possible.”

“I am very honored to have received this award as there were many agents handling challenging escrows throughout 2010,” Goodwin said. “I offer my sincere thanks to the team of people who helped me this year, including Trisha Kenney (Chicago Title), Paul Stansen (short pay negotiator/attorney), Bill and Rose Reed (buyer’s agents), and most of all my seller, who persevered through a difficult time.”

Goodwin was honored Dec. 10 at the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors installation luncheon at the Coral Casino.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
