“Baldwin REALTORS recognizes the impact these organizations have on our area, and we want to support these causes because they create strong communities,” said Kandy Hines, 2019 Baldwin REALTORS President. “REALTORS believe in strong communities, and we will do anything we can to support what they do.”
Thanks & Giving is a time for association members to thank the local charities in the community for their work and to thank members for their hard work and dedication to the association, like affiliate members, committee chairs, and Omega Tau Rho Inductees — REALTOR Emeritus members who have been a REALTOR for at least 40 years.
This year, four Baldwin REALTORS® members were inducted into the Omega Tau Rho fraternity of the National Association of REALTORS.
Membership in the honorary fraternity is represented by the Medallion of Service which is awarded as a token of the high esteem in which inductees are held by their fellow REALTORS and symbolizes the recognition and appreciation accorded to them for their contributions to the National Association of REALTORS and its institutes, societies and councils.
