About the Award 

The NVAR Brokerage Spirit Award honors a brokerage that gives back to the community. Brokerages can self-nominate or be nominated; the criteria is not based on funds raised but on the effort of the brokerage to influence its members’ charitable outreach individually or as a group. The deadline to apply was July 14, 2023. 

Nominations for the Brokerage Spirit Award are NOW CLOSED
