REALTOR® Sings for Needy Homeowners

A little more than a year ago, a tornado ripped through Joplin, Mo., claiming 161 lives and destroying real estate offices and housing inventory.

In the past 12 months, REALTOR® associations have pitched in to help wherever, and however, they can. For some this has meant picking up a hammer, and for others, a checkbook. For real estate broker Ken Rosberg it meant picking up a microphone.

The proceeds from the sale of Rosberg’s CD, Jazz for Joplin: Just Follow Your Heart, will benefit the survivors of the tornado.

“When he came to me with this CD and asked me to listen, I figured I’d politely tell him it was good,” recalls Diane Ruggiero, CEO of the Kansas City Association of REALTORS®. “But the CD was fabulous! I jokingly told him to give up his day job and go into the recording business!”
