Realtors in and around Osceola County are showing they’re not only passionate about selling real estate, they also are about keeping the state’s lakes, rivers, streams, retention ponds, bays, Intracoastal Waterway, Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean clean and healthy as part of their Clean Up Florida’s Waters project during the month of July.

“Florida is known for its beautiful beaches and outstanding waterways – what better way to celebrate this July than to help make our waters clean for everyone to enjoy,” 2023 Florida Realtors® President G. Mike McGraw, a broker-associate with RE/MAX Central Realty in Orlando. “Our waterways are one of the major reasons so many people love to live in – and visit – the Sunshine State. We encourage everyone who loves Florida’s waters to join Florida Realtors’ statewide effort to keep them clean and beautiful.”

The REALTORS® Care Committee partnered with the City of Kissimmee and the City of St. Cloud to select areas of the county that would benefit the most from the Association’s clean-up effort. The volunteer teams were divided between three locations in Osceola County. At the end of the project, the Association’s volunteers collected 390 pounds of trash.

The purpose of the Realtors Care Committee is to seek, develop and promote opportunities for the Osceola County Association of REALTORS and its’ members to be engaged in the community. The committee identifies opportunities and encourages involvement from REALTORS® in order to make a strong, positive impact in the community.

“The record-breaking heat in Osceola County is no match for the members of the Osceola County Association of REALTORS® and their commitment to keeping the local waterways clean so we can protect and preserve it for future generations. Healthy communities need healthy lakes, and it’s encouraging to see so many people across the state pitching in to protect their waterways,” said 2023 Osceola County Association of REALTORS® Board President, Imran Mohamed.
