Reaching out to Realtors

WEDG recently hosted a luncheon for the Iowa City Area Association of Realtors (ICAAR). Almost 100 realtors and business people from Johnson and Washington County met on March 2nd at the Riverside Casino for an informal networking event. 

In addition to networking, the superintendents at Highland, Mid-Prairie, and Washington School Districts gave an overview of their District for the realtors. So did the City Administrators from Kalona, Riverside, Washington, and Wellman.
