Memphis, Tenn: Crye-Leike Real Estate Services congratulates its REO Memphis Division Manager Kim Hairrell and Broker Scott Bettis for earning the 2020 Platinum Premier Vendor award from VRM Mortgage Services. Less than seven percent of VRM's real estate professionals achieved this distinction in 2020.

Crye-Leike REO manages foreclosure properties from list to sale and provides services for lenders, real estate agents, investors, buyers and sellers. The Memphis-based division has represented the Veterans Administration since 2008 and has been working with VRM Mortgage Services, which handles the VA's assets, since 2012. Working together to handle the VRM account, Hairrell and Bettis were able to rank in VRMs platinum category based off the hard work, dedication and exemplary performance they displayed.

"Receiving this award means the diligence I have required of my staff and myself since our division inception in 2005 is once again being recognized," said Hairrell. "I pride myself on providing my clients unsurpassed service throughout the entire process from assignment to close."

Hairrell has worked in the real estate industry for 28 years and is a licensed principal broker in Tennessee and Mississippi. She and Bettis have both earned multiple real estate designations and awards throughout their long-lasting careers, setting the example that continued education and the desire to keep moving forward will pay off in this industry. 2020 has not been the easiest year, but Hairrell is more than prepared to continue leading a successful division and ensuring clients' needs are being met.

"With the ongoing pandemic and its economic challenges, our division could once again play a vital role in the immediate future and years to come," said Hairrell. "No matter what, we will be ready to serve our clients to the best of our ability."
