A Red Deer Realtor has been recognized for his professional and community work.

Dale Devereaux of Century 21 Advantage was recently inducted into the Century 21 Dick Loughlin International Hall of Fame. He is the fourth Canadian to receive that honour.

“To win this award is such a highlight in my career,” said Devereaux in a release issued by Century 21. “To be chosen out of over 100,000 agents in over 78 countries — ‘Wow’ is all I could say.”

Realtors inducted into the Century 21 Dick Loughlin International Hall of Fame are selected on the basis of their sales performance and contributions to their community.

Devereaux has been one of Century 21 Canada’s top producers for years. In 2003 he was named its Sales Associate of the Year, and in 2008 was Century 21’s number 2 Realtor in Canada.

For the past 17 years, Devereaux has been donating a turkey to the Red Deer Food Bank for every house he sells. He was on the fundraising board for Red Deer’s Ronald McDonald House, has helped raise money for other charitable causes like the Ron Maclean Foundation and the Red Deer Hospice, and was a founding member of the Red Deer Optimist Club.

Devereaux was at the Century 21 Global Conference in Washington, D.C., last month when his induction into the hall was announced.

“It was a huge surprise,” he said. “I actually didn’t have a clue. They were talking about the person who was to receive the award and I realized they were talking about me.”

Century 21 is the world’s largest residential real estate franchise sales organization, with approximately 6,800 franchised broker offices and more than 100,000 sales professionals.

Dick Loughlin, who was a part-owner of the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League, served as president and CEO of Century 21 Real Estate Corp. from 1981 to 1995. He died in 2006.
