This January marks Inman’s fifth annual Agent Appreciation Month, which culminates at Inman Connect New York in a celebration of agents at the end of January. Plus, we’re rolling out the coveted Inman Power Player Awards, as well as the New York Power Brokers and MLS Innovators awards.

A great real estate agent is something special. They give so much, they know so much, and they have such a heart for service, both to clients and to the industry. Even before you got into real estate, you probably knew several awesome Realtors in your hometown or worked with someone really special when you bought your first home.

@hunterdonbornrealtor Thank you John Mulaney for talking about “those” buyers 😉 #realtoroftiktok #njrealestate #buyingahouse #beachhouse #netflix #johnmulaney #standupcomedy ♬ original sound – New Jersey Realtor

So let’s give a cheer, we wanna hear it: Two, four, six, eight, who do you appreciate? What agent gave you your big break or helped you out of a slump? What agent worked with you when you were first starting out or helped you rebrand later in your career? Who’s your best friend, wisest mentor or favorite colleague? Let us know below.

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
