The National Association of Realtors is honoring five members who have gone above and beyond to support their local communities through selfless volunteer work. From saving stray cats to raising millions for cancer research, these agents embody the generous and philanthropic spirit of NAR's Good Neighbors program.

Carrie Lu, an agent with Signature Real Estate Group in Las Vegas, has always had a soft spot for cats. As a volunteer with a local vet surgery clinic, Lu saw firsthand how spaying and neutering can help control the stray cat population and alleviate animal suffering. Lu volunteers as a trapper, helping to corral the estimated 200,000 stray cats in Las Vegas and bring them in for sterilization. 

Pedro Fuentes lost his family home in a fire when he was in sixth grade. After that devastating experience, he vowed to help others in times of crisis. Now an agent with Real in Dallas as well as a volunteer firefighter and EMT, Fuentes responds to 75 to 100 emergency calls each year in a service area that covers three counties in rural Texas.
