MINNEAPOLIS, Dec.17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Five Star Professional and Atlanta magazine have teamed up to identify Atlanta real estate, mortgage and home/auto insurance professionals who deliver outstanding services to their clients. The Five Star Professional award program is the largest and most widely published award program in North America. Award candidates are measured using an objective, in-depth research methodology that focuses on customer satisfaction and a thorough regulatory review. Five Star award winners will appear in a special section of the August 2013 issue of Atlanta magazine and on the Five Star Professional website.

Five Star Professional will reach out to nearly 30,000 Atlanta homeowners during December and January.  Homeowners may also evaluate their real estate agent, mortgage or insurance professional at  Self-evaluations are not accepted.

"We are extremely pleased to partner with Atlanta magazine for this project," stated Mike Miner, Five Star Professional vice president of marketing and business development. "This is a unique opportunity for the voice of consumers to be aggregated and shared in an objective way.  For award winners, there is no greater affirmation than to be singled out by your clients as someone they would refer to others," Miner added.   

Atlanta's Five Star Real Estate and Home/Auto award candidates are identified by client evaluations. Five Star Mortgage award candidates are identified by consumer and real estate agent evaluations. No more than seven percent of professionals in each category will receive the award.  Award winners will be notified in March 2013.
