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. On November 13, 1973 the Elyria Area Board of REALTORS® and the Lorain Real Estate Board merged to form the Lorain County Association of REALTORS®.  Though history dates the Lorain Real Estate Board back to 1922 and the Elyria Board to 1938, it was this day in 1973 that brought agents throughout Lorain County together to unify real estate professionals in our area.

LoCAR REALTOR® Members' Dream Becomes a Reality

The “Lorain Sign” started as just an idea from LoCAR REALTOR® members Andrea and Jeff Neal.  The idea became reality through generous donations from the private sector and local businesses. The project would not have been possible without the creative assistance of Lorainite, Brian Bartlebaugh, a lifelong friend of the Neals.  Brian was more than happy to volunteer his time to give back to his community as the Designer Project Engineer.  Together they raised the $25,000-plus needed to begin fabrication of the sign.
