A Bit About Us!

As an Association dedicated to building a strong community, the Cambridge Association of REALTORS® (CAOR) continuously supports local, non-profit charitable organizations by providing financial contributions, in-kind services, and volunteer support. In keeping with our corporate mission, we aim to promote home ownership and quality investments by strengthening our bond with the community and addressing the needs of the people of Cambridge and surrounding areas/townships, particularly the unsheltered, disadvantaged, and most vulnerable. Our Charitable Donations Fund is used to provide support to shelter-based charities or health care institutions.
