Meetings and Events

“The benefits I’ve received have been outstanding! I have met so many Realtors as well as other affiliates through tons of networking over the years that has helped me with my business. I feel it is important to get out there and be seen and, as a SPAAR volunteer, I have many opportunities to do so.”
