The Chicago Association of REALTORS® proudly presented our 139th Annual Inaugural Gala on Friday, September 23. During the festivities, we debuted our 2023 Board of Directors and honored several members for their contributions throughout the year, including the recipient of the Community Service Award.
The REALTOR® Community Service Award recognizes the outstanding achievements of a REALTOR® to their local community as well as active association participation.
A member of the Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, Vicky Silvano is passionate about uplifting and supporting AAPI families through real estate. In 2016, she served as the president of the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA), where she led a successful initiative campaigning the U.S. Census Bureau to include AAPI as a race category in their quarterly homeownership reports, one of her biggest accomplishments to date. She’s active in our association as a longtime board member and chair of our RPAC Fundraising Work Group. All the work Vicky has dedicated herself to has directly benefited our Chicago communities.
