Tom Draper Named BAAR Affiliate of the Year

Tom Draper Named BAAR Affiliate of the Year

The Bay Area Association of Realtors has named First Home Mortgage’s own Tom Draper as the 2019 Affiliate of the Year! This association represents Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Caroline counties.

Tracy Cohee Hodges, First Home Mortgage VP/Area Manager, Eastern Shore Lending, stated “Affiliate of the Year is achieved by serving the real estate community above and beyond all affiliates of the board in every industry, not just mortgage banking.” This means Tom was chosen not only above other loan officers and mortgage companies, but was competing with affiliates from title companies, home inspection companies, attorneys, environmental labs, appraisal companies, builders, and more!

Tracy also shared that he is the youngest ever recipient of this award, and added, “to master relationships and garner trust in this short time is remarkable.”

Tom received his award on Wednesday, November 13th, during a BAAR event held at Bridges Restaurant in Chester, MD. When we asked his thoughts on this stellar achievement, Tom responded “I was honored to have been nominated, and to win the award is something I am very proud of. If you would have told me two years ago when I joined the association that I would be affiliate of the year, I would have called you a liar!”

Tracy speaks for all of us at First Home when she says “Thank you for all that you’ve done to earn this and for representing us all here at FHMC so well! Congratulations! Keep up the outstanding work!”
