Nominate Great Chicago Real Estate Agents

March 06, 2011

We recently told you about an awards program that honored the best Chicago real estate new developments and rehab projects.

The Chicago Association of REALTORS just finished taking nominations for its C.A.R. 2011 Good Neighbors Awards, which recognize homes, rental buildings, affordable housing, historical landmarks, green developments, commercial spaces and parks that make a difference in their communities.

Now, you have the opportunity to recognize great Chicago real estate agents for the work they do after work.

The REALTOR Magazine Good Neighbor Awards program recognizes REALTORS® who improve the lives of others through volunteer work.

“Realtors play a significant role in our nation’s communities,” said National Association of REALTORS® President Ron Phipps, a 2001 Good Neighbor Award recipient.

“The Good Neighbor Awards highlights NAR members who spend time and energy to help others. They also remind us that REALTORS® not only help people purchase homes, but also they work to improve the quality of life in those homes.”

Each year, five winners are selected for their dedication to volunteer service.

The winners:

*Will be announced in the November issue of REALTOR® Magazine

*Will win a $10,000 grant for his or her charity

*Will be recognized at the 2011 REALTOR® Conference & Expo in California

*Will receive travel expenses to the conference

*Will get national and local media exposure for their community cause

*Will score a $2,000 gift card from Lowe’s, which is co-sponsoring the program with HouseLogic

In addition, five honorable mentions will each receive a $2,500 grant and a $1,000 Lowe’s gift card.

“REALTOR® Magazine always looks forward to recognizing Realtors who volunteer in their communities,” said Stacey Moncrieff, REALTOR® Magazine Editor in Chief.

“The Good Neighbor Awards allow us to celebrate those members, as well as inspire others to help those in need.”

Last year’s winners contributed a combined total of almost 8,000 hours to their causes, but none of the winners were from Illinois.

Let’s change that this year. Do you know a great metro Chicago real estate agent who does a lot to improve the lives of others through volunteer work?

Fill out an entry for the 12th annual Good Neighbor Awards by Friday, May 20.
