Royal Pacific Realty Group cares about our communities and takes every opportunity to improve the lives of local residents.

For those of us who are fortunate, Spring is the season when we spruce up our homes and think about getting rid of items we no longer need. Instead of taking items to the landfill, why not recycle? There are many thrift stores in every community in dire need of donations.
