Vince Lovato of Kings III Receives Dallas IREM Champion Award

Vince Lovato of Kings III was nominated for the Dallas IREM Champion Award by Carol Borchardt and received the award on June 10 at the IREM Luncheon.

(Dallas, TX) Vince Lovato, Business Development Manager at Kings III Emergency Communications, was recognized as a Dallas Institution of Real Estate Management (IREM) Champion at an IREM Luncheon held on June 10. The luncheon was held at 3015 at Trinity Groves. The topic of this luncheon was Downtown Dallas, spoken of by guest speaker John F. Crawford, CEO of D Magazine.

IREM is an association of real estate managers, offering networking opportunities for local real estate managers and providing the opportunity for education, resources and information for these like-minded individuals. Priorities of the association include ethical business practices, maximizing real estate investment value and promoting superior management through education. The Dallas IREM (Chapter 14) is among the top five chapters in the nation with about 500 local members.

Those who receive the Dallas IREM Champion Award must be formally nominated by an IREM Member who believes they have gone above and beyond the responsibilities expected of them within the association. The member who nominates them must turn in a thorough description of why they believe that the volunteer deserves the award. Once a volunteer has been nominated, it is reviewed and voted upon by the IREM Awards Committee.

Lovato joined as a Friend of IREM in 2014. Friends of IREM are allowed to attend and participate in IREM meetings as those who come from companies of interest. He has made great strides in becoming involved in ways that benefit the organization as a whole, including joining the PR Committee. On the committee, Vince has taken on a leadership role in heading up the weekly e-newsletter, InSite, and has taken over management of the association’s LinkedIn page. He was nominated for the IREM Champion Award by Carol Borchardt, Assistant Property Manager at Caddo Holdings and Chair of Dallas IREM’s PR Committee.

“Vince has taken sole responsibility for one of PR’s biggest jobs, ‘InSite,’ and also maintains the chapter’s LinkedIn page. He does so much, yet is always willing to do more. The hard work and the dedication he brings to our chapter definitely deserves to be recognized,” said Borchardt of Lovato.
