Beacuse of a reporter's error, the name of a local real estate agent was given incorrectly in a story in Saturday's paper. Nancy Loo Bjorge was among the local agents named to the One Million Dollar Club.
Because of incorrect information supplied to the Journal-World, the story incorrectly described the selection process for the local Realtor awards. The Realtor of the Year is chosen by a Lawrence Board of Realtors committee comprising all active past recipients of the award, the current president, two members at large and two members of the board of directors. The Salesperson of the Year is chosen by a committee comprising four past receipients of the award and three salespeople at large who are appointed by the board of directors.
