REALTOR ® MAGAZINE’S GOOD NEIGHBOR AWARDS
The Good Neighbor
Award winners are as
committed to their
profession as they are to
their communities. They
have been REALTORS® for
an average of 37 years.
Meet REALTORS® who are making an exceptional impact in their world.
When Good Neighbors see a person in need, they don’t think, “Someone should do something.” They
jump in to provide comfort, find answers, or just roll up their sleeves and start fixing the problem.
REALTOR® Magazine’s Good Neighbor Award winners are far less interested in taking credit than they
are in finding solutions. You could call them heroes, though they would likely demur. Learn about their
extraordinary accomplishments by reading their profiles here or viewing their videos at realtor.org/gna.
The 2015 honorees—five winners and five honorable mentions (page 30)—channel their passions into
building a;ordable housing, making life more meaningful for people with disabilities, supporting women
diagnosed with ovarian cancer, making sure a soldier’s service is appreciated, protecting open land,
funding volunteer firefighters, and making a safe zone for victims of domestic violence. Read their stories,
and be inspired to roll up your sleeves. BY SARA GEIMER
