Merna Elaggar, Real Estate Broker at Windermere Real Estate was recently selected as Top Broker of the Year for 2021 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her outstanding leadership, dedication and commitment to the Real Estate industry.

While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, other affiliations and contributions to their communities.  All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual awards gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.

Merna is a dynamic, results-driven leader, who has demonstrated success throughout the entire course of her career.  Merna is a prominent Windermere Real Estate Broker who works with both buyers and sellers in the Greater Seattle, Washington area, specializing in Medina, Clyde Hill, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish and Bothell.

For Merna, “Real Estate is much more than a transaction”. Merna builds deep relationships with each of her clients, getting to know what they are looking for, and brainstorming with them creative solutions to handle everyone’s unique situation. She consistently goes above and beyond the traditional role of a Real Estate broker. For example, Merna frequently draws up designs to help buyers imagine their dream home, helping them through design choices such as paint colors, furniture, and picking out finishes. For sellers, Merna will personally stage your home so it is magazine-worthy to attract the right audience. She is a tireless advocate, a fierce negotiator, and an organized planner, all of which makes buying or selling a stress-free experience for her clients.

Throughout her illustrious career Merna has received multiple awards and has been recognized worldwide for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession. This year she is being considered for a featured article in TIP (Top Industry Professional) Magazine and also for the Empowered Woman of the Year Award given by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP). Merna was awarded with the Rising Star Real Estate Agent award 3 years in a row (2018, 2019 & 2020) from 5 Star Professional. Only 0.21% of Washington Real Estate brokers get this recognition for that many years. Merna was named one of the top 10 real estate brokers in Washington state by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals. She was recognized for her online presence by Property Spark as one of the Top 15 Bellevue Real Estate Brokers. Merna continues to be honored for her extraordinary work and was featured in numerous publications which include Seattle Times Magazine, the 2019 & 2020 editions of Who’s Who in America as well as Forbes Magazine.

Looking back, Merna attributes her success to her diligence, her passion for helping people achieve their goals and her extensive education and training in interior design and architecture.
