Lincoln County Board of REALTORS® is proud to announce Freddy Saxton of Advantage Real Estate, Newport as our 2021 REALTOR® of the Year!
The annual REALTOR® of the Year award recipient is chosen from those brokers nominated by their peers and colleagues, and awarded based on 4 separate guidelines: REALTOR® Spirit, Business Accomplishment, Activity in Community Affairs, and Service to Local, State, and National REALTOR® Associations.
The coastal environment and Real Estate are in Freddy’s blood. He is a 3rd generation Real Estate Broker in his family, with one of his daughters following in his footsteps. He’s a father and a grandfather.
First licensed in 2008, Freddy stepped up in 2015 and took over the helm of Advantage Real Estate when there was a health issue in the family. Prior to becoming licensed, Freddy was an owner with his father in ORCA Builders for 20 years.
Freddy has been a great President for our local Lincoln County Board of REALTORS® and has seamlessly led us through some very challenging times during COVID. Being Board President requires a great deal of time and dedication and Freddy agreed to volunteer for a second term this year during a most difficult time to navigate through. Freddy has been involved as a REALTOR® at a national level, state level and our local board on several committees. He has shown strong leadership in our community, serving as a volunteer for many organizations. Not to mention he was a TV celebrity when he starred in two Beach Front Bargain episodes on HGTV. In the past Freddy proudly served our country in the United States Marine Corp, and later in the ROTC.
