The 2019 Membership survey is here!

The membership survey is our annual opportunity to find out what our members think about our programs and events. It also teaches us how we can better serve our members which is why this survey is so important. This survey will take no more than 11 minutes. Gift cards will be randomly awarded to three lucky members from now until the survey ends on April 12th.

We ask that ALL OBAR members participate in this survey: REALTOR®, Property Managment, Appraisers, & Community Partners.
