Nominate a REALTOR® Good Neighbor in 2022

Do you know a REALTOR® who dedicates time to make a difference in our communities? Seattle King County REALTORS® welcomes nominations for 2022 Quarterly REALTOR® Good Neighbor Awards.

Just like the National Association of REALTORS® Good Neighbor Awards, we recognize REALTOR® members who make a positive impact on their community and gifts the organization through which they volunteer time and talents. These quarterly and annual awards seek to highlight, inspire, and preserve the individual contributions within the real estate industry toward improving the livability of our communities, as well as financially support the nonprofits that exist to do the same.

“These quarterly awards are a fantastic way to celebrate our fellow REALTORS® who go above and beyond in our communities, and brings awareness to the multitude of ways we can give back,” said Hadley Elston, Good Neighbor Award Committee Chair. “If there’s anyone that you would like to recognize, please consider nominating them!”

Quarterly winners receive:
  • Framed Good Neighbor certificate;
  • Recognition to 7,500+ members on social media and SKCR website;
  • $500 for charity/organization they are involved with; and
  • Consideration to be the Annual Good Neighbor Award winner at the end of the year with an additional $1,000 for charity/organization they are involved with.

The Seattle King County REALTORS® Good Neighbor Awards program began in 2021 and we are excited to continue recognizing good neighbors in 2022.
