CABOR Launches New Website
Independence, OH (May 21, 2012)— The Cleveland Area Board of REALTORS® (CABOR) has launched its new website at www.cabor.com. The dramatically redesigned site, created by Meritech, Inc. embodies CABOR’s forward-thinking vision and commitment to the growing needs of its members.
The site’s homepage welcomes visitors with bold new colors, a clean uncluttered design, optimization for mobile browsers, and features content centered on CABOR’s mission to be the leading resource and advocate for the real estate community, to enhance the ability, conduct and image of its members and to protect and promote real property rights.
