A Stirling Salute

Stirling Properties celebrates success of Team Stirling & the company. 

Stirling Properties hosted a virtual Stirling Salute last Friday to acknowledge and award the team and company’s remarkable success over the past year.

Marty Mayer, Stirling Properties’ President & CEO, kicked off the company-wide event recognizing the challenges of the past year and highlighting the team’s extraordinary adaptability and response. “Like most businesses, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, our commercial business slowed substantially. But we were able to pivot quickly, adapt to the challenges—which uniquely positioned us to take advantage of the resulting opportunities,” said Mayer.

He noted the favorable position the company is in today is due to the groundwork that’s been laid over the last ten years. “As a company, we took chances, made conscious decisions without having a clear view of the outcome but rather a vision of the future possibilities. That’s the reason we were able to respond to this crisis and all the crises before that. Our accomplishments are due to the collective efforts of the entire team. You have heard me say, ‘when opportunity comes, it’s too late to prepare.’ Conversely, ‘when challenges come, it’s too late to prepare.’ That certainly was never truer than in 2020.”

He and Stirling Properties’ partners thanked Team Stirling for their hard work and dedication. Brokerage Division Award recipients received recognition for Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Emerald and Ruby production levels based on individual adjusted gross commissions from 2020. Special acknowledgment was also given to Rhonda Sharkawy, Senior Retail Leasing and Development Advisor in New Orleans, for achieving the Top Commercial Producer Award —this is the 6th consecutive year she has earned this accolade.
