Do you know a REALTOR® or Affiliate Member that goes above and beyond to help the community? Do you dedicate your free time to a local charity? If the answer is "yes" to either question, both are eligible to apply for the 2020 GAAR Good Neighbor Award. A friend, family member, colleague, or charity can nominate a member OR a member can nominate themselves!
Recipients receive a $1,000 grant for their charity and are featured in GAAR's consumer outreach campaign.
The Good Neighbor Award Program not only recognizes individuals and their charities for their good work, but it also helps the public understand the positive impact of REALTORS® in our community. GAAR will recognize our Good Neighbors and their charities on NewMexicoHomeSearch.com, magazine ads, plus each Good Neighbor will have a chance to represent their charity on New Mexico Living morning show. This year's recipients will be announced in November.
Good Neighbor Awards are open to all GAAR members, both REALTOR® and Affiliate, who dedicate themselves to volunteer service. Up to four REALTOR® recipients and one Affiliate recipient are awarded. Eligible candidates must be a member of GAAR in good standing, meet all eligibility requirements, and submit completed applications by the deadline.
