General Membership Meeting
looks at regional economic growth
The quarterly General Membership Meeting of the Montrose Association of REALTORS® (MAR) was held at the Montrose new Community Recreation Center on February 16, 2017.

Ken Sherbenou, Executive Director of Montrose’s new Rec. Center, talked about how that facility adds to the city’s amenities, making Montrose more attractive to new residents and businesses. Sandy Head, Executive Director of Montrose Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), shared information about past, present, and future projects backed by that organization, which is committed to helping the City of Montrose.

Why be a REALTOR®?
Every REALTOR® makes a commitment to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. They are also required to complete a refresher course every four years (through NAR).
Only REALTORS® voluntarily subscribe to this Code of Ethics founded on professional service and fair treatment. This is an important distinction that sets a REALTOR® apart from an unaffiliated real estate sales person.
