That's Who We R
Realtors® understand the importance of paying it forward and dedicate themselves to giving back to the communities they know so well. Whether it's holding a can drive, sponsoring a team, or donating to their local charity, Realtors® are committed to enhancing their local areas in any way they can. Here are how Iowa Realtors® gave back in 2019.
