Good Neighbor Award
REALTORS® are known for being trusted authorities on the local housing market, but a new recognition program seeks to highlight the volunteer work they do to make Central Virginia the lovely place we know it is to live! The CAAR Good Neighbor Award will honor a REALTOR® member for significant time and interest he or she has dedicated to a local non-profit or charitable organization; the award includes a $500 donation to the organization for which his or her work is being recognized. This award is given bi-annually.
