JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A local realtor was honored this week for her work with Make-A-Wish. 

Danna Reece Johnson received the Good Neighbor Award Web Choice winner from the National Association of Realtors.

According to a Facebook post, over 42,000 votes were cast in the poll.

"Northeast Arkansas may not be the largest in population but there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that NEA has the biggest hearts, especially when it comes to Make-a-Wish,” Johnson said in the post.

In addition to the award, Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-South will receive a $3,500 grant and an additional $1,000 grant from the realtor group. 

"To be the first Arkansas realtor to ever receive this award is a huge honor and very humbling but to be able to give a $3,500 grant to an organization that I am so passionate about is beyond thrilling," Johnson wrote.
