OKC metro Realtors give thousands to state housing foundation

MLSOK Inc., a subsidiary of the Oklahoma City Metro Association of Realtors, has donated $42,250 to the Oklahoma Housing Foundation.

The foundation, which is run by the Oklahoma Association of Realtors, is an online resource connecting Oklahomans in crisis with housing solutions. The foundation creates partnerships with community outreach organizations and empowers Realtors across the state to meet the needs of their communities. It operates on donations, partnerships with local Realtor associations and proceeds from the state’s Realtor license plate.

"I am proud to be a part of an organization making significant contributions to help people in their most trying times,” said Monty Strickland, 2021 MLSOK president. “We appreciate the mission of the Oklahoma Housing Foundation and thank them for all that they do.”

Supporting the community is important to Realtors, said Jeff Langum, 2020 MLSOK president.

“Funding the Oklahoma Housing Foundation means our neighbors will have somewhere to turn when they suffer a tragedy and when natural disasters strike,” Langum said. “This is a critical way to protect our communities.”
