Real Estate Pros Band Together


Many real estate professionals who sowed fertile ground in the recent boom years are now reaping the fallout of the downturn in the housing industry.

So some of them are banding together with a mission of self-help. They met this week at the Greater Tampa Bay Realtors Association office, to get tips on how to survive the economic downturn. Their goal is to get 300 people back to work.

The next meeting of 'Real Estate Lives' is 10 a.m. Feb. 2, at the Greater Tampa Area Association of Realtors auditorium on Kennedy Blvd. in Tampa.
