Last night I had the honor of attending my 3rd Good Neighbor Awards Dinner. Each year it’s been an incredible honor to meet and recognize REALTORS® who make extraordinary commitments to improving the quality of life in their communities.
Each year, realtor.com® does a contest for the “Web Choice Winner,” a top vote-getter who we give a $2,500 bonus for their charity. This year’s winner, Michael LaFargue and his wife Jenny, sat at my table and I had the immense pleasure of getting to know them. Michael is a tenacious champion for communities, taking leadership roles in multiple activist groups (related to transportation, schools, neighborhoods, and parks) to drive change in underserved areas of Chicago. A project he led to install neighborhood security cameras resulted in the arrest of suspects in the murder of a local judge.
Thank you to all the winners from last night, you are truly an inspiration.
