Taylor Swift isn’t just a hit with your kids. Her neighbors have given her a seal of approval as well. awarded the pop star with the distinction of Most Desirable Neighbor for 2016 after she received 12 percent of the votes from a general public survey.

“2015 was a landmark year for Taylor Swift, from her highly successful 1989 World Tour, to being named the youngest female ever on Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women list, so it’s no surprise America picked the down-to-earth singer-songwriter as 2016’s most desirable neighbor,” said Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow chief marketing officer.

Swift is a New Yorker and lives in a seven-bedroom, 5.5-bath Tribeca loft she purchased for about $20 million in October 2014.

Last year, fellow New Yorker Jimmy Fallon won the award. The late night television star lives in celebrity haven, Gramercy Park.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence and comedian Amy Schumer rounded out the top three positions, earning 11 percent and nine percent of votes, respectively. All three women were equally as popular among male and female voters.

Outspoken Republican candidate, Donald Trump, tops this yearʼs list for worst neighbor, moving up three positions from his fourth place finish in 2014.

Trump earned 24 percent of total votes for worst neighbor, but was especially disliked by females (27 percent) and millennials (33 percent) polled.

Kim Kardashian and Kayne West came in second with 22 percent of the votes, narrowly defeating last year’s worst neighbor, Justin Bieber, who ranked third this year (18 percent).

Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, finished fourth with 11 percent of votes.
