SVAR welcomed a fellow REALTOR® with a cause on July 9. Drake Van de Castle, a Crozet resident and member of the Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS®, is pedaling across Virginia on a month-long Bike for Seniors campaign. He's raising awareness of, and donations for, senior citizens who need financial assistance when they can't afford necessary home repairs. Van de Castle also seeks to heighten awareness among REALTOR® associations and housing nonprofits along his 1,000-mile journey, which began July 1 in Chincoteague and will end July 31 in Bristol.
