MIAAOR Awards Lisa Grear

The Marco Island Area Association of Realtors (MIAAOR) has presented its 2018 Richard Shanahan MIAAOR Service Award to Lisa Grear, of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Florida Realty, Marco Island.

Lisa has exemplified the highest level of integrity and professionalism throughout her 19 years with MIAAOR. One of her noteworthy causes is the Collier County Honor Flight Program, whose mission is to transport local Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. Lisa has been very actively engaged in this wonderful initiative and says that she will continue to support the program in the future. “It’s an opportunity to show my gratitude and it’s an honor to volunteer for this worthy cause. It’s all about the Veterans, America’s Heroes….it’s their day …but it’s a shared experience between the guardian and Veteran that’s beyond measure…a feeling like no other.”
