Plan and organize a weekly schedule of visits to homes that are for sale in our county. It is a home tour of 5+ homes on Thursday mornings where REALTORS® are invited to visit each home in a specified order and attend a brief open house. This helps better understand the property and gives other REALTORS® the opportunity to view the property and ask questions. Lunch is provided by a Business Sponsor.
