The Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association named Aric Beals, GRI, the 2010 Realtor® of the Year at the Association/Carolina Multiple Listing Services, Inc.

Beals is the broker-in-charge (BIC) of Berryhill Realty, Co.
Aric Beals is a committed volunteer, parent and citizen. He has proven to be a resource for staff, fellow members and his family. He was surprised by his wife, Jill, children Andrew (age 9) and Sarah (age 6), and parents Allen and Betsy Beals at the Holiday Awards Luncheon & Annual Meeting. He was humbled and thankful for the honor.
“I truly want to thank my family for their help and support,” Beals said at the luncheon. “I could not do it without them.”
