FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Long Island Board of REALTORS® expands services to Brooklyn


The Long Island Board of REALTORS®, Inc. (LIBOR) is pleased to announce the formation of a Brooklyn Chapter. The recent westward expansion is the result of the Board’s commitment to providing services, benefits and networking opportunities to our Brooklyn membership. The Brooklyn Chapter joins the roster of LIBOR’s already established Chapters, which span from the North and South Forks of Eastern Long Island to Western Queens.

Chapters are geographically designed to meet the unique business needs of a specific market.  They have their own elected leadership who are instrumental in determining educational programs and networking opportunities that meet the needs of those members. “The formation of the new Chapter is crucial to serving REALTORS® in the Brooklyn area, which in turn will benefit the customers they serve. Increased access for our members to LIBOR’s resources will create a greater experience for all.” said Dianne Scalza, LIBOR President.

Sal Crifasi, President of the newly formed Chapter, who was instrumental in the development, explained, "The idea of creating a new Brooklyn Chapter of LIBOR is to grow the awareness of the value of the REALTOR® brand throughout the five boroughs. With the recent MLS Regionalization between LIBOR and Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® (HGAR) the need for stronger professional collaboration is vital to insure our future success.  The Brooklyn Chapter is a start.”

“The addition of a Brooklyn Chapter is an essential part of LIBOR’s strategic growth plan.  REALTORS® working in the Brooklyn community will now be empowered to take advantage of new business opportunities by getting involved with their own local Board Chapter.” said Joseph E. Mottola, LIBOR CEO. “The expansion is in alignment with LIBOR’s mission to provide to its members resources that will enable them to reach their highest potential level of business success by enhancing their value to the consumer.”

The Brooklyn Chapter will hold its first meeting on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 5:00pm at The Dumbo Loft in Brooklyn. For additional information visit: https://brooklyn.lirealtor.com/.
