Naples Realtor® Wins 2023 Newcomer of the Year

ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida Realtors® recognized Spencer Rigsby, a member of the Naples Area Board of Realtors (NABOR), as the winner of its Newcomer of the Year Award for 2023. The award was presented at the state association’s recent annual Convention & Trade Expo at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla.

The Newcomer of the Year award recognizes someone who entered the Realtor profession within the past three years, and, during that time, made notable contributions to the local and state associations, as well as to his or her community.

Since she joined NABOR in 2021, Rigsby seeks involvement and growth within her local association. She has invested in her profession through the Realtors Political Action Committee (RPAC). A member of NABOR’s Community Involvement Committee for the past two years, Rigsby currently serves as the committee vice chair. She was the 2022 subcommittee chair for NABOR’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade; that year she also received the Member Spotlight Award for outstanding contributions to the Community Involvement Committee.

A graduate of NABOR’s Leadership Academy in 2022, Rigsby completed a community service project for a local charity, Project HELP, as part of her leadership training. Project HELP is a nonprofit staffed by professional counselors and advocates who work with those affected by sexual violence, sudden death and other crimes to offer counseling, empowerment and healing for their recovery. In the Naples community, Rigsby volunteers her time and talents to numerous causes, including helping local schools, organizing school supply drives and holiday drives, as well as serving as vice president of the board for local charity Beverly’s Angels.

Rigsby received NABOR’s Realtor Rising Star Award in 2022.
