Barbara Jenness was selected as the 2008 REALTOR® of the Year for the St. Augustine Regional's chapter of the Women's Council of REALTORS®. This is the first year a separate award for REALTOR of the Year and Affiliate of the Year was done. Seymoine Schmidt, with Colonial Bank, was selected as the Affiliate of the Year. Neither award is by nomination, but simply by the members writing in the name of the person. Last year the chapter awarded a member of the year. Mitsu O'Riley was last year's member of the year. Barbara was the 2007 President of the Women's Council of REALTORS® and served on the board this year as immediate past president. Seymoine was Mixer Chair and continues in that role for 2009.
