Awards & Recognition

The Ozzie Awards

The Ozzie Awards

The annual Ozzie awards are a way to honor Verani Realty Founder Osvaldo Verani (also known as Ozzie) as well as to recognize agents who have achieved high performance as determined by gross commission income (GCI). The award statue was originally designed and created by Patricia Verani, Osvaldo’s wife and noted local artist, and it is the same statue that is given out to award winners today.
