Our own Dale Gross of Meyer & Gross Real Estate in Atlantic received the L. Martin Lee Political Involvement Award recently at the 2015 Iowa Association of REALTORS® annual convention held at the Prairie Meadows Convention Center in Altoona. The prestigious L. Martin Lee Political Involvement Award recognizes an individual who has significantly advanced the legislative agenda of the IAR through political involvement. The Award was first presented in 2002, named after the Iowa Association of REALTORS® Chief Executive Officer at that time, L. Martin (Marty) Lee. Gross is seen here accepting the award from the 2014 winner, Kris Brend, Executive Officer of the Central Iowa Board of REALTORS® and the Heart of Iowa Regional Board of REALTORS®.
