2016 ACAR Awards

Awards

The REALTOR® of the Year Committee is accepting nominations for several special award categories. Each year, the Association names a deserving member as REALTOR® of the Year – the most prestigious honor that can be awarded to an ACAR member.  The Committee is also accepting nominations for Affiliate of the Year and Commercial REALTOR® of the Year. If you know an ACAR member that exemplifies professionalism — to the real estate industry and to the community — consider nominating him or her.

2 New Award Categories for 2016!

The Young Professional Award recognizes REALTOR® members under 40 years old who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and professional qualities. The recipient will receive a scholarship of up to $300 for the REALTOR® designation or certification of his/her choice from the Harold L. Klarreich Scholarship Foundation.

The Good Neighbor Award identifies and recognizes REALTORS® who have made an extraordinary impact on their community, or on the national or world stage, through charitable and volunteer work. The recipient will receive a $1,000 donation to the charity of his/her choice from the Real Estate Community Cares Fund.

All award winners will be invited to attend a private reception with ACAR leadership and will be promoted to members and the public.
