DAAR REALTOR® of the Year – Jackie Lawlor
This prestigious honor is awarded to the REALTOR® who excels in serving the real estate profession and community. DAAR is proud to select Jackie Lawlor as the 2017 DAAR REALTOR® of the Year. Lawlor epitomizes the REALTOR® Spirit through her commitment to professional development and educational excellence; advocacy at the local, state, and national level; and dedication to the industry and community involvement.

Lawlor is an Associate Broker with Jack Lawlor Realty Co., a family-owned business located in the heart of Ashburn and has over fifteen years of experience in the local real estate industry. “Helping people buy and sell homes in Northern Virginia is only part of what I do,” said Lawlor. “I have a passion for taking care of my clients and my community.” Lawlor has given countless hours of volunteer work for her company, the community, and at all levels in the association.

“DAAR is very excited to honor Jackie this way,” said Holly Weatherwax, 2018 DAAR President. “She has continuously given back and worked to make this industry and our community better.” Lawlor is a previous Circle of Excellence Award winner and has served in numerous roles with DAAR, including serving as the 2017 DAAR President and a member of Government Affairs, Budget & Finance, and Investment committees.

Jeanette Newton Community Leadership Award 
The new Jeanette Newton Community Leadership Award recognizes REALTORS® and Affiliates who have made an extraordinary commitment to improving the quality of life in their communities through their volunteer work. The recipient portrays a dedication to leadership, community and public service, humanitarianism and courage. Each year the winner will receive a contribution, in their name, to a charity or organization of their choice.

The first recipient of this award is Brenda MacEoin, with ERA Teachers. MacEoin has been active in the community for over 20 years. Since being named as one of the Outstanding Women of Loudoun County in 1996, MacEoin has continuously served on a variety of councils, boards, and non-profit associations. “Whenever there is a need for help,” said Weatherwax, “organizations and DAAR can count on Brenda to volunteer.”

The organization most dear to MacEoin’s heart is the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS). $500 will be donated to LAWS in her name.

The Jeanette Newton Community Leadership Award was established in honor of Jeanette Newton, who served as the Chief Executive Officer of DAAR from 1991-2016. Newton initiated several community service programs for the Association including the Habitat/RPAC Golf Tournament, Rebuilding Together/Christmas in April, Charity Auction and DAAR member participation in the Babe Ruth World Series. She served on various board and commissions including Loudoun Habitat for Humanity, Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Loudoun Board of Equalization.
