Are you looking at my putt?

The HBA of F-M's most popular member events, our Golf Outings, will open for sponsorship and registration next month! Dates will be July 20 and Aug. 17 at Hawley Golf & Country Club.


Early next month, watch for sponsorship opportunities which allow you early team registration. These events routinely sell out so don't shank your shot!


Giving Hearts Day was a smashing success!

You generously gave over $50,000 to support Home Builders Care of F-M Foundation's community build projects, scholarships and workforce-centered programming.


Home Builders Care is the HBA of F-M's charitable arm. Their donor base increased by 66% over last year. A huge thank you to the F-M Area Association of Realtors for their partnership in fundraising and our friendly competition to win the "Building The Future" Cup. While the Builder Team came out on top, everyone was a winner in the end.
