Resources for Winner Publicity

We encourage local media and real estate boards to publicize the work of Good Neighbor Award winners. Publicity leads to more donations and volunteers for the winners' charities, and therefore enables the Good Neighbor Awards to help even more people.

We also hope you will help us promote the program to potential candidates in advance of the May 2016 application deadline.

You are welcome to download ready-to-publish stories, photos, and videos of our Good Neighbors. In order to download the program files to your computer, right click (or CTRL-click on a Mac) and select "Save Link/Target As..." Or, find more downloadable files in the media kits for each of the 2015 winners below.

Resources for AEs to Start a local Good Neighbor Awards program

Many state and local real estate associations have their own version of the Good Neighbor Awards to identify and recognize exceptional REALTORS® in their area. Each year, local associations choose their best candidates to submit to the national program, REALTOR® Magazine's Good Neighbor Awards. This feeder system is a great way to find candidates from across the country. If you don't already have a Good Neighbor Awards program, please consider starting one. Or if you have a humanitarian award, consider renaming it and making use of our national reach, criteria, and resources.

Even if you don't have a local program, you may know someone in your association who deserves to be recognized on a national level. Learn more about how to nominate someone for REALTOR® Magazine's Good Neighbor Awards. The next deadline will be in May 2016.


  • Name your program in a way that differentiates it from other Good Neighbor programs; for example, the "Missouri Association of REALTORS® Good Neighbor Awards."
  • Your application deadline should be set so that you have time to submit your winners to the national contest, which has a May deadline each year.
