Charlotte Hutchinson’s approach to giving back to her community has earned her recognition from the real estate industry.
The Sicamous councillor and realtor with Re/Max at Mara Lake is the 2012 recipient of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board Shuswap Zone’s Realtors Care award. The award recognizes Hutchinson for her tireless donation of time and energy to many worthwhile causes. This includes the work she has done, and continues to do with organizations and community groups such as the District of Sicamous, Community Futures, Sicamous and District Chamber of Commerce, Eagle Valley Senior Housing Society and the Shuswap Emergency Program.
Among those nominated for the award were Salmon Arm realtors Jeff Stacer of Re/Max Shuswap and Tara Gallant of Royal LePage Access Real Estate. Stacer has played an integral part in the success of many local fundraisers, while Gallant is known for devoting time to seniors and donating to the women’s shelter and food bank.
