ORRA community initiatives elevate the REALTOR® brand plus fulfill those REALTORS® who seek to serve others
ORRA is always out and about within our local community, both representing the REALTOR® brand and simply lending a hand to those in need.
Whether it’s through ORRA’s sponsorship of a fundraising event; presence at a chamber of commerce meeting; or preparing and serving a meal at a nonprofit organization, we strive to make a difference in the community. Here are just a few examples of our activities in 2017:
>Packed “Totes of Hope” filled with donated toiletries for the Florida REALTORS® hurricane relief effort.
