Mission & Purpose
The Seattle King County REALTORS® Good Neighbor Awards 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.
☑️ REALTORS® may nominate themselves or may be nominated by another REALTOR®, a state or local association executive, or the organization they serve.
☑️ Seattle King County REALTORS® staff and their families, and current Good Neighbors Awards Subcommittee members and their families are ineligible to participate.
☑️ Award finalists must sign an affidavit of eligibility, submit to a criminal history check, and be willing to be interviewed, photographed, filmed, and nominated for the National Association of REALTORS® Good Neighbor Award.
☑️ Award monies will only be granted to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.
☑️ Nominees must be members of Seattle King County REALTORS® in good standing.
☑️ Nominees will be judged on level of personal contribution, especially volunteer (unpaid) hours, though contributions of money and other resources will be considered as well. Eligible activities are not limited to real estate or housing issues and may include volunteer work done overseas.
☑️ Some portion of the nominee’s work must have taken place within the 12 months prior to the nomination deadline.
☑️ Nominees should be able to document the results of their individual involvement though photos, published reports and/or testimonials from the organization they served or the people they helped.
☑️ This award is intended to recognize individuals, not associations or companies. If an individual within your association or company can be singled out as instrumental to the success of a group effort, he or she is eligible. If the achievements of two people (such as a married couple or co-founders of an organization) cannot be separated, they can enter as a pair and their entry will be considered as one.
