We are sure you all have heard about the devastation caused in parts of Texas, Louisiana and surrounding areas from Hurricane Harvey. Though Superstorm Sandy was five years ago, it is not far from our minds here in New Jersey.  Just as the Realtor Relief Foundation accepted donations and provided help for those in need during that time, they will do so again.

The REALTORS® Relief Foundation is currently coordinating efforts to help families in that area that have endured unimaginable loss.

Please consider contributing—100% of your donation will be used for disaster relief.

Here's a heartwarming story about a small independent broker, Alissa Spears, and what she's doing to help families in her area of Rockport, TX.
