Susana Corrigan and Patty Cohen of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, La Jolla Prospect, share many things. They are sisters, business partners, and by an interesting turn of events are currently competing for the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors (SDAR) Award of Excellence which acknowledges outstanding service to the Association, its members, the community, and the real estate industry. The award is reflective of the ethics, integrity, and professional standards of the individuals. With more than 12,000 members, the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® is the largest trade association in the county.
Nominated anonymously by their peers, they are now among the top 3 finalists. They were nominated separately even though they are a team, a double honor. When individually interviewed by a panel, Patty suggested, tongue-in-cheek, that perhaps the sisters could share the award, if in the top two. During Susana’s interview, not knowing about her sister’s comments, she asked that Patty be given the honor.
Originally from Mexico City, the sisters are nationally recognized agents. Corrigan has been in the real estate business for 32 year. Cohen joined the enterprise 13 years ago after having owned and operated a prominent Hispanic Advertising and Public Relations firm. Together they support and complement one another creating a synergy that is put to good use in servicing their clients. The award winners will be announced at the Installation Dinner to celebrate SDAR’s incoming 2015 officers and board of directors to be held on Saturday, January 17, 2015 where the sisters will be cheering one another on!
