Real Estate Connection Joins Frederick County Associations for REALTORS (FCAR)

This year Real Estate Connection (REC) joins one of the largest Associations in Frederick County. As we were now part of the Local Realtor Association, We are greatly honored to join their “Introduction to FCAR Membership” meeting were we are given a chance to finally meet those realtors who also joined the association. Our membership locally with the Frederick County Association of REALTORS® is an excellent way to network with other real estate professionals.  FCAR introduces us to more activities that can increase our knowledge, help others and have fun at the same time. Their volunteers and staff work to provide you with benefits to improve productivity ensure professionalism and help maintain the REALTOR image in our local community.
