James D. Landauer/John R. White Award
JAMES D. LANDAUER / JOHN R. WHITE AWARD
The Landauer/White Award is presented annually to an individual who has furthered the ideals of The Counselors of Real Estate®—integrity, competence, community, trust and selflessness—and who has demonstrated both outstanding professionalism in real estate and a notable influence civically. The award is not given based on involvement in The Counselor or NAR organizations. Rather, it is awarded to an individual who is viewed by their peers as a recognized leader of real estate who has contributed significantly to his/her community and/or the world around them. Achievement solely in real estate or in a civic capacity alone is not sufficient to receive the award. The recipient must demonstrate a record of noteworthy accomplishment in both areas.
The award was established in 1986 as a memorial to honor CRE James Landauer for his instrumental role in establishing The Counselors of Real Estate. Through his efforts, the prestige of the real estate counseling profession was greatly advanced. In 1997, the award was renamed the James D. Landauer/John R. White Award, to honor another high profile professional, John Robert White, who served as a long-term chairman of the Landauer Company as well as President of The Counselors of Real Estate in 1969.
The recipient of the award is selected by a three-person committee made up of The Counselors’ Chair and two immediate past Chairs. Written nominations are solicited from and submitted by the CRE membership.
Hugh Kelly, Ph.D., CRE, was recognized as the 2019 recipient of The Counselors of Real Estate’s most prestigious honor, the James D. Landauer/John R. White Award, presented to those who have furthered the ideals of the organization—integrity, competence, community, trust, and selflessness—and who have demonstrated both outstanding professionalism in real estate and a notable influence civically.
