Realtors® Care Day- April 26, 2017 -

Save the Date!

Since its inception, Realtors® Care Day has been a great way for Realtor® members to give back to their communities through improvements including landscaping, outdoor cleanup, exterior repairs and safety modifications. Ultimately, the projects not only restore a homeowner's pride, but also instill a revitalizing momentum in the community. Equipped with hammers and nails, and armed with a passion to give back, Realtor® crews make a significant impact on a community's elderly, disabled, and residents living in substandard conditions.
