Kirkland resident Rich Bergdahl was among 11 individuals singled out for special honors at the 2016 Installation and Awards Banquet of the Seattle King County Realtors (SKCR).

Kirkland resident Rich Bergdahl received the Realtor Achievement Award for outstanding contributions to the profession. His service encompasses numerous local, state, and national committees focused on protecting U.S. homeowner interests and the real estate industry. The licensed attorney has chaired the Washington Realtor Legal Affairs Committee and is starting his fifth year as a director on the board of the National Association of Realtors, representing SKCR. His background also includes experience as a real estate appraiser and title insurance claim administrator/litigator.

Bergdahl, a 2003 graduate of the Realtors’ Leadership Institute Northwest, and his wife Nanette, a top-producing Realtor, are partners at Bergdahl Real Property.

The event also featured the installation of the organization’s 2017 leaders and a dessert auction to benefit a scholarship fund.

The annual event drew more than 220 participants, including members, affiliates, and representatives from the group’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) and Women’s Council of Realtors.
