Insight May 2020 coverOne of the greatest impacts NC REALTORS® have on their communities is the coordinate efforts and immediate response to help those in need—even during a pandemic. This year’s NC REALTORS® Give Back Day shifted to a virtual collaboration of philanthropic activity, and we were blown away by the response. When REALTORS® come together, communities thrive. This is only a snapshot of the many activities and service projects submitted by our members and local associations. Visit for more stories and photos of this year’s event. #NCRGivesBack
