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...
Will Hampton and Marilee Morrow
Will Hampton and Marilee Morrow are the proud owners of their home at 630 5th St in Marietta. Like many people they decided to spend their down time during this challenging COVID time freshening up their beautiful family home.
They started their life in Marietta with a house closer to the college, but Marilee had her eye on a place she knew would be their perfect home. As the house was being used as an investment property, Marilee was tenacious in her pursuit and eventually convinced the owner to give them the opportunity to buy. This beautiful home, built in the 1850’s, was where they could finally settle down and finish raising their three children. The oldest Erin, who now lives in New York City, loves where she is at, but misses the small town she grew up in. Then there is Oscar, who is closer, attending Ohio Northern and Tucker, who is attending Marietta College. All of whom have always appreciated taking walks and playing with friends in their safe neighborhood.
The Marietta Board of REALTORS® wants to congratulate this family for winning Home of The Month for September 2020. We all appreciate what they have done to make Marietta a beautiful place to live.
