Lorain County Association of REALTORS®:  50 Years of Facilitating Home Ownership

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a REALTOR® is experiencing the excitement of getting our client a beautiful new home.  Whether it is their first time purchasing a home or they have purchased several through the years, there is no better feeling of handing over that set of keys.  The members of the Lorain County Association of REALTORS® have been enjoying this feeling for the last 50 years.  As we celebrate this milestone, we as an association continue to strive to educate our members to ensure they continue to grow as professionals and can assist home buyers in making one of the biggest decisions of their life.
