The work of a Realtor is to make dreams come true by helping people find, purchase or sell their residential, commercial or investment property.
In Burbank, local Realtors take the dream-making part of their job to another level by awarding scholarships to those who are pursuing their dream of attending a college, university or trade school.
Awarded through the Burbank Assn. of Realtors' charitable arm, the Community Service Foundation, $26,000 in scholarship grants were awarded to 14 local men and women during a presentation held at the association's Magnolia Boulevard headquarters this past week.
Presided over by the association's president Julian Munoz, past president Eric Benz, foundation chairwoman Marion Chase and committee member Christopher John Rizzotti, last week's presentation saw the highest amount of scholarships granted since the foundation was established in 1987.
Calling the city of Burbank's future bright due to the caliber of academic excellence of the recipients, Benz cited the work of the foundation to be one of the most rewarding components of the association's long-standing commitment to the betterment of Burbank.
