The Real Estate Award was established in 1998 by the South Carolina Chapter of the March of Dimes to honor a member of the real estate community who has demonstrated a long history of service. Recipients are chosen for their outstanding leadership and vision in the community.
Not only does the Real Estate Award raise money and awareness for the March of Dimes lifesaving mission of fighting for babies, but it also gives the real estate community a unique opportunity to network with associates from throughout the area.
This premier event, typically a breakfast, is attended by members of the real estate and corporate communities, including developers, architects, bankers, title companies and others.
