ACADIANA REALTORS® Reach Out

The REALTOR® Association of Acadiana (RAA) took action to help those devastated by the flooding in North Louisiana. At least 35 REALTOR® members lost everything from this historic flood. The RAA felt the need to give back to those fellow REALTORS® and understood the importance of binding our communities together to represent what it means to be REALTOR®.
Susan Holliday, RAA CEO, stated, “Our members are absolutely amazing. When we asked them to donate to help our colleagues up north, they did so without any hesitation. We were able to pack a U-Haul from all of our members’ generosity. It is truly a humbling experience.”
Several RAA Board members loaded up the U-Haul and headed to Monroe to extend a hand and bring all of the items collected. The Northeast Louisiana Association of REALTORS® were waiting to help unload and itemize the donations for their members to pick up.
Alice Clark, CEO Northeast Louisiana Association of REALTORS® advised, “Words are not adequate to express our thanks and gratitude to RAA for helping our members and their clients who were impacted by the devastating floods, recently, in northeast Louisiana. The outpouring of love and support has given us strength and a renewed awareness of what it means to “Love Your Community”, even if the path between us spans almost 200 miles. This kindness has brought together people who wear the REALTOR ® “R” as professionals every day to form friendships that will last a lifetime. Thank you, RAA, for being a friend!”
