Isabelle Pullis, a founding and past board member of the New York Chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women’s Network (NYCREW), was named the first recipient of the organization’s Empire Award, given to a member for outstanding dedication and service.
The award was presented at the organization’s members-only summer social, held at the rooftop lounge at the Strand Hotel.
“I’m a proud New Yorker, and a proud NYCREW member,” said Pullis, a vice president of sales at Fidelity National Title. “The Empire Award is something I’ll always cherish.”
A founding member of NYCREW in December 2001, Pullis went on to serve on the organization’s board, and the membership and programs committees. “It’s been wonderful seeing the progress of NYCREW and its members, to see how they’ve grown in their careers,” Pullis added. “I really enjoy being a resource for people.”
Recognizing such dedication was the reason Board Member Faith Hope Consolo proposed and created the annual Empire Award, with the full endorsement of the board of directors.
“The selection committee made an exceptional choice in honoring Isabelle, whom I’ve called a friend for more years than either of us will admit,” said Consolo, chairman of Douglas Elliman’s Retail Group. “She is the role model for everything NYCREW stands for.”
The recipient of the Empire Award will be chosen each year by a committee consisting of the current NYCREW president, Past President and President-Elect.
