Home of the Month Award Program
The Marietta Board of REALTORS® is expanding the Home of the Month program to recognize well-maintained residential homes in all of Washington County.
Each month, from March through November one home will be selected as the “Home of the Month” by the members of the Marietta Board of REALTORS® officers and directors. A yard sign will be placed in the yard for the month and a framed photograph of the house will be presented to the homeowner. We are partnering with local publications, media outlets, WMOA and social media groups who will showcase each month’s award winning home. The winning home will be featured on the front cover of the “Showcase of Homes” magazine. If you are a media outlet or social group that would like to help us celebrate the Home of the Month, please contact us at:
One of the monthly winners will be voted Home of the Year.
Awards will be based on the home meeting these qualifications: the owner will demonstrate an exceptional job maintaining the home, including overall tidiness, pleasing landscaping, demonstrating sound structural condition and appearance. City records will be reviewed to ensure the property is current on tax payments.
Simply complete the nomination form which asks for the owner’s name, the address, and a brief explanation of why this house should be considered. A photo of the front exterior of the house is also required.
Submit the nomination form and house photo to the Marietta Real Estate Board office by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations will be valid for this calendar year; nominations submitted by the 25th of each month through October will be considered; and realtors and their immediate family are not eligible. Forms are available at the Board of Realtors office or click here to download.
Home of the Month Announcement
Marietta Board of REALTORS® would like to recognize...
Ben and Melissa Cogswell
The Marietta Board of REALTORS® would like to congratulate Ben and Melissa Cogswell for winning the Home of the Month for November. This charming home is located on Muskingum River Road in Marietta. The family has lived in this beautiful farmhouse for over 22 years and raised their 2 children there. The family used to live next door, but had always dreamed of owning this home to raise their family and continue farming the land. The home built in the 1800’s was given a makeover in the kitchen and baths when they first took possession. It wasn’t until later that they were able to have the porch rebuilt during the exterior renovation. That was when they designed the wrap around porch they had always wanted & matched the original design to the create a beautiful curb appeal. We thank the family for creating such a beautiful home and making Marietta such a special place to live. Again, Congratulations to the Cogswell Family from The Marietta Board of REALTORS®.
