  1. Colby has been my friend, big brother, business partner and mentor for over 40 years and he truly deserves this and many more real estate and humanitarian awards. The SEC would not be the organization it is today without him and many other deserving pioneers in our profession. I will always cherish the 10 years we taught Broker Estate Building together. Go Colby go, you are number one.
