News Flash: Bert Waugh Jr, President of Prudential NW Properties, is the recipient of PMAR’s 2005 Realtor Good Neighbor Award!
From the PMAR (Portland Metropolitan Association Of Realtors) website: Realtors work hard to improve the quality of life in their communities. As a result, the National Association of Realtors has established the Good Neighbor Award. The award, in its fourth year, recognizes the ongoing efforts of Realtors who make exceptional contributions to improving the quality of life in their communities. Nominations reached an all-time high in 2003, with nearly 300 entries. Winners receive a grant for their charitable organization.
Bert was selected based on his service and dedication to homeless youth. Twelve years ago, he founded Transitional Youth, a non-profit group that works closely with local youth assistance centers such as the Salvation Army Greenhouse and New Avenues For Youth. The group’s mission is to improve the lives of homeless youth by providing food, clothing, education, positive recreational outlets and related experiences. Fully 100 percent of each donation goes to help homeless youth—Bert sees to it that Prudential Northwest Properties absorbs all overhead expenses.
Congratulations, Bert, on this well-deserved award. We’re very proud of you!
Bert will be honored at the 2005 Portland First Citizen Luncheon on May 5 at the Governor Hotel. This year’s First Citizen Award recipient is Gert Boyle, of Columbia Sportswear.
