Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest privately-owned residential real estate company in the United States, is proud to announce that Sue Plaskon, an associate broker with the Charlottesville-Old Ivy Sales office, has received the second quarter Good Neighbor Award from the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors.
The Good Neighbor Award program highlights local Realtors who dedicate significant time and interest to projects that make a lasting impact on our communities. Plaskon was nominated by her Broker, Art Pearson, and colleague, Denise Ramey, for her dedication, commitment and fundraising efforts for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Virginia-West Virginia Chapter.
In addition to serving on the board of trustees from 2008-2015, she also attended important annual meetings, seminars and dinners for the organization. Through her efforts, she has helped raise almost $50,000 since 2008 by increasing awareness and participating in various fundraising events and activities, including bike rides, luncheons and walks.
In this past year alone, Plaskon not only volunteered 10 hours a month but also encouraged others to volunteer 200 hours to the organization, positively impacting at least 12,000 individuals and their families affected by multiple sclerosis. A $250 donation was made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Virginia-West Virginia Chapter in Plaskon’s name.
“Long & Foster is proud that the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors has recognized Sue’s many accomplishments and her commitment to the industry and her community. Sue is a true professional in the real estate industry, and her dedication to her buyers and sellers is a testament to her passion for the real estate industry,” Pearson said.
Plaskon, a professional in the real estate industry for the past 39 years has a master’s degree from University of Connecticut. She lives in Ivy with her husband, Stephen, and enjoys gardening, swimming and spending time with her grandchildren.
“It’s the commitment of agents like Sue’s that has enabled her to earn an honor such as this one, and we’re proud to have her as part of the Long & Foster family,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Our company has a reputation of honesty, integrity and best-in-class customer service that spans 45 years, and the talent of professionals like Sue is why we remain the top real estate company in the Mid-Atlantic.”
