JP & Associates REALTORS® Hosts 5th Annual Awards Gala

JP & Associates REALTORS® Hosts 5th Annual Awards Gala

“Informative, inspiring,” and of course, “entertaining!” These are just several of the words agents and business partners have used to describe JP & Associates REALTORS® biggest event of the year. Celebrating their top producers, the Frisco-based real estate company took over Dallas’ Gilley’s South Side Ballroom for the fashionably dressed, red-carpet occasion. The evening was filled with music, smiles, and laughter, as well as several motivational, and memorable moments.

The Seppes, so named after the brokerage’s Founder and Owner, Giuseppe ‘JP’ Piccinini, boasted an attendance of nearly 800 JPAR agents and guests for its 5th Annual Awards Gala. This Oscar style event remains highly anticipated by the entire company and its offices across the US.

“Each year, The Seppes just gets bigger and better,” Piccinini said. “Seven years ago, I held JPAR’s first award ceremony in my own living room. It’s amazing to think we’re now hosting in venues which hold all of our agents from across the nation.”

Similar to the Oscars, each award is presented by two speakers, for which there are numerous categories, all based on the year’s productivity for the winning agent. Previous award winners, staff, and even company executives act as presenters, announcing the nominees and singing praises to the winners in their uniquely, notable fashions. Awards range from Top Producer to Mentor or Rookie of the Year to the Circle of Excellence Sales awards for exceeding expectations in real estate sales.

Rookie of the Year winner, Jackie South, had one of the most moving acceptance speeches of the evening. Having faced several difficult challenges in 2018, it became clear how much she values her JPAR family. “I absolutely love JP & Associates,” South stated. “Without this culture, and more specifically, the help of my mentor, there is no way I could have ever met the needs of my clients, let alone received this award.” She then added, “I am so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful company that truly cares for its agents.”

After the awards, guests enjoyed door prizes and a raffle for charity. Live music by Emerald City Band had the crowd up and dancing in between hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

“I’ve never seen a real estate brokerage focus so much on the needs and desires of its agents,” said Trenton Johnson, winner of the Top Sales Agent award for the third consecutive year in a row. “The Seppes is amazing evening, but each day, JPAR goes above and beyond to make sure my business and clients are taken care of in every possible way. If you enjoy working hard and having fun, this is the place to be.”

JP & Associates REALTORS® Announces Agent Health Care & Retirement Plans

JP & Associates REALTORS® Announces Agent Health Care & Retirement Plans

“I could not be more excited for our agents,” said Giuseppe ‘JP’ Piccinini, Founder and CEO of JP & REALTORS®. “With the latest additions to our company, our Realtors® now have options regarding health insurance and retirement plans.”

As of February 15, 2019, agents with JP & Associates REALTORS® will have access to AHP, JPAR’s
Agent Health Care Plan, and Gemini, the company’s retirement and bonus plan.

As self-employed, independent contractors, Real Estate Agents are intimately familiar with finding the best options for suitable health care. For those that may not have an insured spouse, are new to the business, or simply seek more affordable options, finding a plan that works within a specified budget may prove difficult.

“We strongly value the livelihood of our agents,” said Mark Johnson, Chief Operating Officer for JP & Associates. “Not only does our Agent Health Plan service offer ideal benefits, but we are able to lower out-of-pocket expenses.” Mark also stated, “Our agents may save up to 40-70% annually compared to their current plans, which could potentially be up to $15,000 or more a year.”

Equally impressive, the company’s rollout of Gemini in such an expedited time frame of halfway through the first quarter of its fiscal year, offers its agents solace and guidance in financially preparing for a better future.

“We are proud to work with a real estate brokerage that cares so deeply about their agents and communities,” said Antonio Valente, Principal & Financial Advisor of the Penn Valente Group with Baird Financial. “The fact JP (Giuseppe Piccinini) felt it not only necessary to educate his agents on retirement planning, but also, develop a service to build wealth for his agents and their families is a true testament to his character and company vision.”

JP And Associates REALTORS® (JPAR) is one of the top 50 brokerages in the US. A full-service transaction based real estate brokerage firm specializing in real estate sales and marketing services with multiple offices across Texas and franchise opportunities available for entrepreneurial real estate professionals.
