Century 21's Cristian Ripoll earns national award for customer service


DOWNEY — A Century 21 agent from Downey has been honored with one of the company’s top awards for customer service.

Cristian Ripoll of Century 21 Peak earned the company’s Quality Service Pinnacle Award. The award is based on results from quality service surveys e-mailed to clients immediately after the purchase or sale of a home.

To earn the award, an agent must earn an average survey score of at least 95 percent or better for two consecutive years.

“The Quality Service Pinnacle Producer Award is an integral part of our brand’s commitment to excellence and recognizes Cristian’s dedication to making each and every client interaction a positive one,” said Michael Miedler, president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate.

“Cristian provides their clients with knowledge and advice related to their real estate transaction and offers them confidence during what may be the most significant purchase of a lifetime,” added Eli Tene, broker/owner of Century 21 Peak.

Ripoll will receive a customized glass trophy, in addition to being recognized at the Century 21 Global Conference.

Steve Roberson honored for sales, quality service milestones

DOWNEY Steve Roberson, a broker associate with Century 21 Peak in Downey, was honored recently for reaching one of the company’s top sales and customer service milestones.


Roberson earned Century 21’s President’s Producer Award, an annual award bestowed upon Century 21 sales affiliates that earn the Century 21 Centurion and Century 21 Quality Service Pinnacle Producer Award in the same calendar year.

The Centurion Producer award honors agents that earn $280,000 in sales production or 70 closed transaction sides within the calendar year.

To earn the Quality Service Pinnacle Producer Award, a sales affiliate must receive completed customer surveys for at least 50 percent of their transactions surveyed from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, with an average survey score of at least 95 percentage or better for two consecutive years.

“We are thrilled to recognize Steve Roberson’s work for this momentous achievement,” said Michael Miedler, president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate. “This is an outstanding honor since only a small percentage of affiliated agents in the United States receive this award for sales.”
