LA MESA -- The Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors (PSAR), a San Diego-area trade group for realtors who serve East County neighborhoods, was recently honored by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. The realtors were recognized for completing a home makeover beautification project for a disabled and unemployed La Mesa homeowner down on his luck.
The Supervisors declared Tuesday, July 30 as “PSAR Day” in the county. County Supervisor Dianne Jacob presented a proclamation to Jeff Campbell, 2013 PSAR president, and Carey Guthrie, chair of Helping Hands 4 Homes, a committee of PSAR members who assist less-fortunate homeowners facing hardships and in need of new hope.
Earlier this year, over several weekends, a small army of more than 100 PSAR members and supporters, including contractors and other building trade specialists, volunteered their labor over at a home previously cited by La Mesa city officials for housing code violations, said Campbell. The improvements included a new roof, landscape renovation and general clean-up. Donated construction materials included plywood, roofing, paint and plants, according to Guthrie.
