Bay County Association of REALTORS®, the voice for real estate in Northwest Florida, announced the changing of the organization’s name to Central Panhandle Association of REALTORS® (CPAR).
The new name reflects the association’s prominence and reach in Northwest Florida and the REALTORS® of Bay, Holmes, Jackson, Washington, and Calhoun counties. CPAR agreed to pursue a name change when it merged with the Chipola Area Board of REALTORS®. CPAR’s service area now extends from the Gulf of Mexico to the Alabama border.
“The new name more accurately reflects who we are as an association and represents the rapid growth we’ve seen in recent years.” said Michelle Ginn, 61st President of CPAR.
Debbie Ashbrook, Chief Executive Officer of CPAR, added “As an organization with 80 years of experience and deep roots in our local community, we are committed to delivering superior service to our members and the citizens of our core counties”.
The new name is effective immediately and will be implemented across the association’s products and services throughout the calendar year of 2017.
To meet the demands of the associations ever increasing profile and membership, CPAR is renovating a building located near Hathaway Bridge into a new state-of-the-art office, with construction estimated to be completed by the end of 2017.
