On the south side of the facility, WMLAR has its one-of-a-kind REALTOR® Memorial that made the ‘national news’ a number of years ago.
The West Michigan Lakeshore Association of REALTORS® has one of the most unique and meaningful ways to remember REALTORS® who have passed away: the REALTOR® Memorial.
Situated in a park-like setting is a bench, lovely landscaping and two granite markers that include the names of all former members that passed away since the year 2000 who were active members at the time of their death. This lasting remembrance is frequently visited by family members and friends.
Many have commented on this wonderful way to remember a loved one, a person that was Proud To Be A REALTOR®. Take time to visit this tribute the next time you are in the area.
