The National Association of Realtors has announced that a Purcellville-based Realtor has received the Good Neighbor Award.
Greg Masucci, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential in Washington, D.C. and Atoka Properties in Purcellville, was named one of five 2020 Good Neighbor Award winners. Together with his wife, Masucci in 2016 founded A Farm Less Ordinary, which employs young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, providing opportunities to work, learn and be part of a community.
NAR’s Good Neighbor Awards honor 10 Realtors annually for making an extraordinary impact on their communities through volunteer work. Over the past 21 years, the Good Neighbor Awards program has awarded nearly $1.4 million in grants to more than 200 Realtor-led nonprofits. Their impact has been felt in 40 states, 15 countries and in Puerto Rico, according to association officials.
“Our Good Neighbor Award winners leave a remarkable impact on their communities every year, but everything these Realtors have done in 2020 is even more impressive and more commendable,” NAR President Vince Malta said in a prepared statement. “I am proud to honor Greg Masucci for dedicating so much time and passion to providing opportunities for people with disabilities.”
At A Farm Less Ordinary, young men and women learn to grow produce from seed to harvest, attend farmers’ markets as ambassadors for people with disabilities and enjoy an environment that builds their skills and confidence.
With the award, Masucci will receive a $10,000 grant for his charity. In lieu of the traditional ceremony held every year at the Realtors Conference and Expo, each winner will also be honored by their local associations over the coming months.
