RISMEDIA, February 9, 2011–Jim Bray, President of Cutler Real Estate, was honored by the Stark County Association of REALTORS® with a Lifetime Achievement Award at their recent Installation Banquet at Glenmoor Country Club. Based on his 44 years of service to both the real estate industry and the community, Jim is the twelfth recipient of the award since 2003.
After earning a business degree from Michigan State University and serving in the Army, Jim joined the Cutler-Minor Agency in October of 1966, working with and for his mentor, Al Cutler. He worked in both sales and management until 1980 when he and Jay Cutler became partners in Cutler Real Estate upon Al Cutler’s retirement.
Jim is a past recipient of both the REALTOR® and Broker of the Year Awards from the Stark County Association of REALTORS®. He takes great pride in his continuing influence on the technology changes made to the Multiple Listing Service, moving it from printed cards to the internet access available today. He is also involved with Delta Media Group, one of the largest independent real estate internet/website solutions companies in the country. In the community, Jim has served on numerous boards including the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Jackson/Belden Chamber of Commerce where he received the “Outstanding Community Volunteer of the Year Award”.
When asked what this award means to him, Jim said, “It makes me think of prior recipients, especially Al (Cutler) who was one of the first. It’s humbling to be compared to them when I think of their impact on the quality of life here in our community.”
Jim’s family includes his wife, Penny, their daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Justin Truex, and two grandchildren, Brandon and Carrie.
