Realtors® & the Community

Realtors® care about the community in which they live and work. They fight for affordable homeownership opportunities and take pride in giving back to the community through volunteer work. PMAR recognizes those citizens whose extraordinary contributions have enriched our area.

PMAR established the Realtor® Good Neighbor Award to recognize the ongoing efforts of Realtors® who make exceptional contributions to improving the quality of life in their communities.

This prestigious honor is awarded to the PMAR member whose service to the Realtor® associations, the community, and the industry is truly outstanding.

The Portland Future First Citizen Award and $5,000 scholarship will be presented at the Portland First Citizen Banquet in recognition of a currently enrolled high school senior in the Portland metropolitan area who has made an extraordinary commitment to improving the quality of life in their community.

The PMAR YPN Rising Star Award recognizes and rewards a rising YPN Member for their exemplary efforts in their community, business, and industry and is presented annually at the PMAR Installation Luncheon in December.

The Portland First Citizen Award was created by the Portland Board of Realtors® in 1928 to honor civic achievements and business leadership in the community. Considered one of Portland’s most prestigious awards, the individuals who have received it are an honor roll of the city’s most prominent leaders.
