Local Realtors Search for Funds to Aid Flood Victims


Realtors from the local area as well as from throughout Utah have rallied to find funds to aid flood victims.

Karen Martino-Basso from Trails End Realty is spearheading the efforts and recently applied for a Utah Association for Realtors Housing Opportunity Fund (UARHOF) grant. If awarded, the grant goes into a 501C3 nonprofit fund. Then, the Carbon Emery Board of Realtors Flood Relief Committee will handle the funds to assist with flood relief.

Martino-Basso, who has been working closely with the Utah Association of Realtors, explained that the process is in the early stages and is a work in progress.

“We are diligently working on it,” she said.

In addition to searching for funds, realtors can assist homeowners with a market analysis. According to Martino-Basso, the analysis will determine a home’s value before flood damage occurred. This will help with recording damage information for future relief and assistance.

Martino-Basso encouraged homeowners to still call (435) 472-HELP (4357) for assistance with flood clean up.

Representatives from Nagel Realty, the Mike Metzger Team at Bridge Realty and Etzel Realty are also assisting in the relief efforts.
