Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty is pleased to announce that Lewes Rental Manager, Adriane Gallagher, has been awarded two distinctive honors from the Sussex County Association of REALTORS (SCAOR).

For the 2021 year, Adriane has been named the REALTOR of the Year for Sussex County. Furthermore, Adriane has also been awarded the Alma Ashley Rental Service Award.  Given annually by SCAOR, this award commemorates Alma Ashley.  Ashley is remembered for her excellence in customer service as one of the first rental agents along the Delaware coast.

“These awards are based on commitment and involvement within the SCAOR Association.  The recipient must show leadership, and dedication centered around community service.  Adriane has been very involved with the SCAOR community, serving several years on the board of the SCAOR Community Service Foundation, as well as being the current Treasurer of SCAOR,” stated Gallo Realty Vice President, Andrew Ratner.

“In addition to her community dedication, Adriane also played an integral role this year during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.  She worked directly with the state government establishing guidelines for the vacation rental business.  Adriane’s leadership in this capacity enabled the vacation rental business to remain open throughout the summer season.  She led a statewide task force that established best practices for the industry while dealing with the pandemic, and her team’s recommendations to the Governor were impactful,” added Ratner.  “Adriane is certainly well-deserving of each of these awards, and our entire company thanks to her for her dedication to community service.”
