Nominations must be submitted by September 14 to be considered for the October 5 awards.
This award is presented twice a year to property owners that have completed a project that enhances the surrounding area. The project could be residential or commercial, a rehab/remodel/rebuild of a structure that improves the surrounding area, or new construction in an area that will be revitalized through its addition to the neighborhood. The committee prefers that the work was done within the past 18 months. The awards will be presented to recipients at two Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors luncheons, will receive recognition to all of our 3,500 members, and will be featured in a press release following the presentation. To nominate a property for the award, please complete the application below and submit no more than 12 before and after photos of the interior and exterior of the property with the application. Our committee is excited to see the amazing property that you nominate! For questions, contact Alyssa Born with GFWAR at 817-336-5165, ext. 112, or a.born@ gfwar.org.
