Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association member Joe Rempson received honorable mention and was awarded $2,500 through the National Association of Realtors®‘ (NAR) Good Neighbor Award. The award is given through NAR’s official REALTOR® Magazine. Rempson’s service to the Charlotte community is immeasurable, and his latest volunteer leadership for Realtors® Care Day put him in the national spotlight. Realtors® Care Day, a project of the association’s Housing Opportunity Foundation, has helped 64 families over the last two years. The project was Rempson’s vision back in 2008, and with the help of a core committee, Rempson was event chair in 2009 and served as co-chair in 2010. Realtors® Care Day 2010 is an all-day event that assists deserving homeowners with critical but often unaffordable exterior home repairs. The event is the largest philanthropic project of the foundation; more than 650 Realtor® volunteers perform repairs on more than 30 homes across Mecklenburg and Iredell counties. The project’s estimated financial impact amounts to more than $400,000 over the past two years. “Joe’s passion for helping others is inspirational and has been the key to the success of Realtors® Care Day,” says Terri Marshall, executive director of the foundation. “We are truly fortunate that Joe’s commitment to service extends to leadership roles within our foundation and association. He has helped guide the Realtor® community’s efforts to improve the lives of our neighbors.” Rempson has served as a Realtor® and property manager for the past 12 years with T.R. Lawing Realty, Inc., and is graciously supported by his wife, Rachel, and three children, Avery, Cole and Ryann.
