NAR Launches 2024 Good Neighbor Awards

For 25 years now, NAR has honored Realtors who strengthen their communities through their volunteer service. Five winners receive $10K grants for their cause.

CHICAGO – Applications are now open for the National Association of Realtors® 2024 Good Neighbor Awards, which honors Realtors® who make significant impacts in their communities and exemplify dedication to volunteer service. This year marks 25 years for the program.

"NAR's Good Neighbor Awards highlight the remarkable dedication of Realtors to making a meaningful difference where they live and work," said NAR President Kevin Sears, broker-partner of Sears Real Estate in Springfield, Massachusetts. "As we celebrate 25 years of this program, we are reminded of the power of giving back and how one person can change the lives of many."

Five winners will each receive a $10,000 grant for their nonprofit organization and be recognized in November during NAR NXT, The Realtor® Experience in Boston. Five honorable mentions will also each receive a $2,500 grant.

Since its inception, NAR's Good Neighbor Awards have recognized more than 240 Realtors for their volunteer efforts, contributing more than $1.5 million to Realtor-led nonprofit organizations. Past winners, hailing from 43 states and Puerto Rico, have made a meaningful impact in 17 countries worldwide, demonstrating the spirit of community and compassion that defines the real estate community and transcends borders.

Two Realtors in Florida were among the five 2023 Good Neighbor Award winners: Kasia Maslanka of Fort Lauderdale and Sandra Shank of Palm Coast.

"® salutes the Good Neighbor Awards and the program's 25 years of recognizing how agents who are Realtors improve lives and communities," said Chief Marketing Officer Mickey Neuberger. "As a long-time sponsor, we've witnessed the profound impact and been inspired to make a difference with consumers, customers and housing industry partners."
