Commercial Realtors group honors Stewart with Tandy Award

Fort Worth real estate broker Chris Stewart has received the 2014 Charles D. Tandy Commercial Realtor Award from the local chapter of the Society of Commercial Realtors.

The award was established in 1990 to recognize commercial Realtors who best exemplify the highest in professional standards. It is named in honor of Charles Tandy for his legacy of investing in and contributing to the Fort Worth community.

Stewart leases and sells commercial and industrial property throughout Fort Worth and the Mid-Cities and is affiliated with Vasseur Commercial Real Estate in Fort Worth.

“Chris has been a great supporter of our organization for many years,” said Chairman C.B. Team. “He is probably the most honest and upstanding broker I have had the pleasure to work with. There are few other Realtors that are as deserving of this award as Chris is.”

In other awards, the Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors presented John Maddux with John H. Maddux, Inc. with the 2014 Realtor of the Year Award; Allie Culwell with Apple Realty with the 2014 Marie & Dayton Sheridan Realtor Spirit Award; and Catherine Cargile with Old Republic Title with the 2014 Affiliate of the Year Award.
