The Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors® Masters Circle held its 15th annual Silent Auction on Thursday, May 9th at the Hotel Eastlund.
Twenty-nine items were auctioned off to a crowd of 90 Realtors® and real estate industry professionals. A grand total of $3,725 was raised with 100% of the funds going to the African American Alliance for Homeownership.
Each year, the Masters Circle selects a charitable organization in the Portland metro area to support through this event. In addition to recognizing the achievements of top Realtors®, the Masters Circle is committed to holding real estate agents to a high standard of professionalism and community service involvement. It is in this spirit that the Masters Circle gives back to the community in which their members work each year through the Silent Auction.
