The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors and its Young Professionals Network of Las Vegas has announced the winners of the annual “40 under 40” awards.

The awards program was created to acknowledge the top 40 local Realtors under the age of 40 who demonstrate excellence in their careers and service to their community and to the real estate industry.

Honorees were chosen by a selection committee of GLVAR members and will be recognized at an event Thursday, April 16, at the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas.

They will also be recognized in various ways by GLVAR, including being featured in GLVAR’s monthly Southern Nevada Realtor publication.

One of the night’s honorees, Heather Mongie, of Signature Real Estate Group, is thrilled to be celebrating her third award from GLVAR and YPN.

“Out of 12,000 applicants in the Las Vegas Valley, it’s a major distinction for your work to be recognized in both production and leadership,” Mongie said.

For Shay Hasselmann, of Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas, being recognized for the first time is especially humbling after working in the field for just two years.

“Being among the caliber of people here is terrific,” Hasselmann said. “To be so quickly honored in this way feels really great, but it’s also an honor to be able to help so many people in so many different ways.”
