Grants & Awards

The Salt Lake Board of Realtors® loves to recognize our members for the amazing work they do on behalf of their clients and their communities. From helping a first-time homebuyer get into their dream house to dedicating time and resources to charitable causes – they make us proud!


AMERICAN DREAM GRANT
Homeownership matters! That’s why the Salt Lake Board of Realtors® started the American Dream Grant, which helps first-time homebuyers with their down payments. These $5,000 grants help single parents, first responders, school employees, and veterans/military personnel in achieving the dream of homeownership. The Salt Lake Board of Realtors® Charity Committee awarded 9 grants in 2020 and will award 12 grants in 2021!

CURRENT GRANT: Open to all first-time homebuyers! Applications are open November 1 - December 10. APPLY NOW

REALTOR® 500 AWARDS
There is no application process for this award. The Realtor® 500 is an invitation-only event, which is limited to Realtors® who are primary members of the Salt Lake Board. Selection is determined by gross sales volume (as reported on UtahRealEstate.com). Sales are counted for the primary buyer’s/seller’s agent under which they are reported and must be reported to UtahRealEstate.com by December 31 to be counted. The top 500 member-agents will be notified by mid-January. Award recipients will be featured in Salt Lake Realtor® Magazine and in local newspapers.

HALL OF FAME
Members who qualify for the Realtor® 500 may also receive the Hall of Fame Award. There are two ways to qualify:
  • Earn 50 points throughout the year for Board participation and service.
  • Automatically receive the award (no application process) by becoming an RPAC Major Investor. Make a one-time investment of $1,000 or several smaller investments throughout the year (totaling $1,000). Investments must be made by December 31 to be counted for this award.

    GOOD NEIGHBOR
    Up to three individuals may be selected as Good Neighbor Award winners, recognized for dedicating their time and effort to the community or a charitable endeavor. In this, the Salt Lake Board of Realtors® is echoing the approach taken by the National Association of Realtors®, which selects five Good Neighbor recipients each year. Many of our members do tremendous work in the community, and we want to recognize as many as possible!


    REALTOR® OF THE YEAR
    The winner of this prestigious award is selected by a committee comprised of the past five recipients of the award. Selection is not determined by sales volume, but rather by dedication and commitment to serve and give back to the real estate profession and community. Considerations for recipient selection may include service and involvement in local, state, and national Realtor® associations, community and civic involvement, and other areas of service to the real estate profession. Past recipients do not qualify and cannot be nominated.
