Whether it is helping people buy and sell homes or supporting and/or assisting local charities and philanthropic organizations, local REALTORS® strive to make a difference. Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® is a non-profit organization with over 1,000 REALTOR® and affiliate members who provide professional and ethical real estate and real estate related services to Will and Grundy Counties. As members of the National Association of REALTORS®, they adhere to a strict Code of Ethics which protects their clients, the public and other real estate agents. REALTORS® also maintain a higher level of the knowledge of the home buying and selling process as evidenced by the level of satisfaction expressed by most of their clients.

National Association of REALTORS® research shows that nearly nine out of ten buyers are satisfied with their REALTORS® honesty, integrity, knowledge of the purchase process and the real estate market in general. David McClintock, Chief Executive Officer of Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® added “for many of our members, it goes beyond the day to day job of helping people buy and sell homes. It is also about making a difference in other ways, where we can, in the lives of families and individuals as a means of giving back to a community that gives us so much.” A sample of some of the things Three Rivers Association of Realtors members have done includes supporting a number of local charities and organizations like the Boys and Girls Club, Morning Star Mission, The Salvation Army, Will County Center for Community Concerns as well as participating in disaster relief when needed. Among the events that the REALTORS® have participated in are the annual Festival of Trees at the Rialto Theater and Wreaths Across America at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery which honors our veterans. “This is just a small sample of what we do as an association and does not include the countless other things that our individual members do personally in terms of contributions and volunteering for the betterment of the communities they service,” added McClintock.
