Welcome to EABOR


Meet 2019 President Mark Spurgeon

Being served by people who love where they live is a wonderful thing!

REALTORS® love where they live and love what they do. We have the pleasure of representing buyers and sellers during one of the most important events of their lives. Fulfilling dreams is the most rewarding aspect of our profession.

You have discovered a real gem…the Englewood area.  Being situated between two moderate sized markets, enough out of the way to enjoy a different pace, yet just a short drive to the hustle and bustle if you choose.  The best part is the sense of community we offer.

Choosing a REALTOR® is the wise choice to connect you to the community. They have the tools and expertise for a successful transaction. REALTORS® may be competitors but wearing the REALTOR® marker bears no small responsibility to the public and real estate profession. You can rest assured that the professional standards and the code of ethics REALTORS® subscribe to, will be the foundation of your relationship.

I have had the pleasure of growing up, living and working in the Englewood area since 1965.  The community is as vibrant as ever!  I am pleased to serve as the Englewood Area Board of REALTORS® 2019 President.  Because I love where I live and love what I do!  It is an honor to work with fellow REALTORS® in fulfilling our mission statement:

“The Mission of the Englewood Area Board of REALTORS® is to support the success and professionalism of our members while improving our community and protecting private property rights.”

It is my pleasure to welcome and introduce you to the Englewood area!


Best regards,

Mark Spurgeon

Englewood Area Board of REALTORS®

2019 President
