‘Good neighbour’ efforts recognized

Fraser Valley Real Estate Board to present awards for volunteer work in local communities.

Members of the public who nominate a realtor or real estate office for the Realtors Make Good Neighbours Award are eligible to win an iPad mini.

The winners of the Good Neighbours Award will have the opportunity to give a $500 donation to a non-profit agency of their choosing.

The award is the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s (FVREB) merit award for members who have provided outstanding service in their community.

The winners are selected based on: their time committed to volunteer work, the level of responsibility assumed, demonstrated results, and the overall impact of their volunteer efforts.

The work must have been completed in the 2012 calendar year. Nomination forms are available on the FVREB website at fvreb.bc.ca and must be completed by Dec. 17.

Valid nominations submitted by the public will be entered into a random draw for an iPad mini.

Non-profit organizations that would like to make a nomination on behalf of their organization will not be entered into the draw for the iPad mini, but will instead be eligible for a $500 donation if the realtor or office they nominated is selected as the award recipient.

For more information, contact Regene Lane at regene.lane@fvreb.bc.ca or 604-930-7600.
