The Good News Is... Realtors help those in need

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Friday marked a day of help for people who can't afford to repair their homes by those who are usually playing the salesman.

Local Realtors kicked off "Realtors Care Day" across the Charlotte area.

It's a community-wide repair project targeting elderly and disabled homeowners who need help.

One realtor named Tamala Harris tells us, "I'm feeling great about this because this is an opportunity for Realtors to outreach to the community."

More than 700 realtors took part at 32 sites around Mecklenburg and Iredell Counties.
