Younger Partners Co-Managing Partner Kathy Permenter was honored Wednesday night at the Stemmons Service Awards–NTCAR’s premier event to honor a member of the brokerage community who best exemplifies the highest standards of a commercial real estate professional.

This prestigious award is conferred on the professional who has earned the respect of his or her peers and is an active and productive broker who successfully resolves the intricacies of bringing two parties together in a real estate transaction.

Permenter, along with the other nominees and an elite audience of brokers and affiliated commercial real estate professionals, gathered at the Dallas Country Club to celebrate the annual event. Other nominees included Mike Geisler, founding principal and managing partner of Venture Commercial; Sharon Friedberg, senior vice president of Fischer & Company; and Lynn Dowdle, president of Dowdle Real Estate.
