2017 APEX Award Winners

The APEX Awards Program celebrated its inaugural year with fifty applicants totaling a combined $1B+ in qualifying transaction volume.
 

The prestigious RLI APEX Awards Program, sponsored by The Land Report, is an annual production awards program designed to recognize the excellence and performance of our RLI Members -- the best in the business -- with these prestigious land real estate awards. Winners of our 2017 APEX Awards were recognized at a special awards ceremony at the 2018 National Land Conference (NLC18) in Nashville, TN.

All RLI Members are encouraged to apply for the awards program and all NLC attendees are encouraged to purchase a ticket to attend the awards ceremony live. All awards program applicants will have a ticket to the ceremony at NLC included in the price of application. The application submission deadline is at the end of January every year.
