Last week, we celebrated another year at Triplemint with our annual holiday party. This event allows us to celebrate and recognize the successes of both the company as a whole and individual employees.

Triplemint’s CEO David Walker was at the event and helped hand out the awards. “The Triplemint annual holiday party was a wonderful event, highlighted by the celebration of our top agents and employees. We had a very strong group of award winners this year from top agents to employees who showed incredible perseverance in their roles,” he says.

“We all have the common mission of making the process of buying, selling, and renting better for our clients and it was motivational to come together and celebrate all the hard work our team put in this past year to achieve our mission.”

Check out the list below for all the agents and employees that were recognized this year.
