CENTURY 21 Advantage REALTOR® Richard Pochylko wins national award for extraordinary service

CENTURY 21 Canada announces their 2015 Sales Associate of the Year.


“Pay attention to detail, work harder than the next guy, and always play to win.” That’s the philosophy of Red Deer REALTOR® Richard Pochylko of CENTURY 21 Advantage, winner of the peer-nominated CENTURY 21 Canada™ Sales Associate of the Year award for 2015. 

The award considers success around all aspects of a real estate career, including industry and community involvement as well as sales success.

“It’s my eighteenth year with CENTURY 21. I was born and raised as part of the team here. I’m so grateful to my clients and office for their support. Truly, thank you!” said Pochylko. “I really appreciate the ‘hands on’ personal leadership style from head office. It motivates us all to do well.”

No stranger to awards, Pochylko was recently voted Red Deer’s best REALTOR® by his community in the Red Deer Express local paper. He also continually ranks in the top 75 CENTURY 21 sales producers across the entire country. He has earned the prestigious CENTURION®  or DOUBLE CENTURION® Producer top sales awards every year since 2006, and has been inducted into the CENTURY 21 Masters Hall of Fame.

Pochylko’s dedication to his community is even more impressive. A cancer survivor himself, he has raised over $10,000 for research. He regularly gives both time and funds to his local food bank, The United Way, the Medicine River Wildlife refuge, local minor sports teams, anti-bullying campaigns, and he supported the Canadian Wall of Remembrance.

“It’s hard not to notice Richard. He’s an inspiration to all who overcome obstacles and use that as motivation to give back to their communities and clients,” said Brian Rushton, executive vice president, CENTURY 21 Canada. “We all know him personally, so it was moving to present this award to him on stage at our national conference. Well-earned and congratulations from us all!”

Pochylko received the award on stage in front of hundreds of REALTORS® at the CENTURY 21 Canada Conference in Charlottetown, PE. Drop by CENTURY 21 Advantage at 905-4747 67th street in Red Deer, Alberta to meet Pochylko. Or, visit his website to discover the CENTURY 21 difference.
