Kollar is a licensed real estate agent at the Weichert® affiliate, located in South Bend.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be named Realtor of the Year by our regional real estate association,” said Kollar, who earned her real estate license in 1997.
Kollar received the award for her ongoing efforts to improve the professional reputation and quality of service provided by real estate agents in the South Bend-Mishawaka area, and her involvement with local civic and charitable organizations.

It can also be found in Kollar’s work with Habitat for Humanity and the Northern Indiana Food Bank, as well as the fundraising she does locally for groups like the American Heart Association, Alzheimer’s Association and American Cancer Society.
“Positive changes and improvements can happen for our community, our association and our clients if we unite and work together,” added Kollar. “It is my hope that my experience and efforts can be one small piece in helping improve our association – and the communities we serve – going forward.”
Kollar’s positivity and commitment to help others was also applauded by her company’s broker/owner.
“We are extremely proud of Kim’s real estate accomplishments and efforts to help those who live and work in the communities we serve,” said Jim Dunfee, “This award underscores Kim’s commitment to bring about a positive change in everything she does.”
