We launched a social media photo contest to help create a buzz of excitement on Facebook and Instagram. Stop by the VBR office and pick up your 40 th  Anniversary water bottle and post photos to social media all month long for a chance to win prizes. One lucky winner will get the grand prize of 2019 VBR dues valued at $348. We have a limited number of bottles so stop by and get one today.

I also want to congratulations Gary Pesso from Engel & Völkers who was selected as our new REALTOR® of the Year, and Katie Kuchler from Land Title Guarantee who is our new Affiliate of the Year.
