Betty Honeycutt, Ralph Hartsell get lifetime awards from peers

Betty Honeycutt and Ralph Hartsell

Two real estate icons in Cabarrus County have received awards from their peers.

Betty Honeycutt, part of Team Honeycutt at Allen Tate’s Concord office, has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Central Carolinas Association of Realtors.

The mother of Team Honeycutt founder and Cabarrus County Commissioner Diane Honeycutt, Betty has been selling homes for more than 50 years. The 87-year-old began selling homes for her late husband, Ed Honeycutt who was a builder in South Carolina.

She became a licensed Realtor in North Carolina in 1978.

Known as much for her giving and sharing spirit, she was also a Business Today Lifetime Achievement winner in 2015.

Long-time Cabarrus Realtor Ralph Hartsell also received the Emeritus Award from the National Association of Realtors. He served twice as the president of the Realtors association.

The Coldwell Banker Realtor grew up in Cabarrus County and graduated from—you guessed it—Hartsell High School. He served in the US Navy, and graduated from Burtons Institute and attended Evans Business College.

He met and married his wife Doris in 1954; they have been married for 54 years.

He obtained his real estate license in 1972, and ran a successful Century 21 Real Estate office for nearly a quarter of a century.

Hartsell has served on the Board of the Cabarrus County Boys and Girls club for 30 years. He served a three-year term on the board of the Concord-Cabarrus Chamber of Commerce and Merchants Association.

The lifetime achievement awards were presented to Honeycutt and Hartsell at the Central Carolina’s Christmas party at Kannapolis City Hall Dec. 4. The Central Carolinas Association of Realtors represents brokers, property managers, appraisers and real estate counselors in Cabarrus, Stanly and Montgomery counties.
