What is the ‘We Think You Shine’ Award?

In a world filled with negativity, the RE/MAX Shine agency wants to use our voice to lift others up.

By highlighting the good things people are doing via the “We Think You Shine” award, we hope to get back to the heart of what it means to be a true community – its people.

“Despite her busy schedule as a teacher, mom, and state-champion volleyball coach, Jenny still finds time to volunteer as a basketball and softball coach for elementary-aged girls. Her dedication to teaching sportsmanship and skills to the girls is truly inspiring. Jenny goes above and beyond by running the breakfast club at the high school, ensuring that every student in need has access to food before school.”

Keep Shining, Jenny!

Gabbie Zastrow was nominated by Cortney Zehren


Gabbie was nominated because of her servant-minded ways in how she lives her life. She just stepped in to help St Paul Lutheran in Lake Mills when their 4th grade teacher had to move suddenly due to her new husband’s service duties. Gabbie always steps up to help and the students in her classroom could not have been more excited to see their teacher receive this award. May God bless you Gabbie! Thanks for making such a difference wherever you go with how you shine! ☀❤🙌🏻
