Missouri Realtors recently honored Ellen O'Brien, Coldwell Banker Gundaker independent sales associate, with its 2016 Good Neighbor Award for her work with the Realtors Housing Assistance Fund. O'Brien was chosen first from among 11 nominees for the award.
Good Neighbor Award recipients also receive a $2,500 grant to benefit their organization.
While serving as president the St. Louis Realtors, O'Brien recognized the growing population of individuals who were homeless in St. Louis. To raise awareness and funds to address this issue, she created the Realtors Housing Assistance Fund. Since its inception in 1989, the fund has raised more than $800,000 to assist with homelessness in the community. The organization is supported by donations and fundraising events.
