Realty Pros Assured recently celebrated its tenth annual Executive Pros Club, 42 of its top producing agents, at a banquet at Oceanside Country Club.

"We're so excited about the growth this club has seen since its inception in 2008. At Realty Pros our motto is 'It's All About You'. This translates to our customers and our agents," said Bill Navarra, broker/owner of Realty Pros, "It's an honor to be able to celebrate the hard-earned success of these fantastic agents." 

The evening also featured local legend Ron Rice, creator of Hawaiian Tropic, as a speaker.

"He's such an interesting, inspiring and humble man" said Buzzy Porter, co-owner of Realty Pros.  "Ron's is quite the story, very motivating."


Lucky's Market now having a job fair


Lucky’s Market is currently hosting a Hiring Fair through March 22 to fill positions for its coming Ormond Beach store at 101 E Granada Blvd. in the former Food Lion building.

The job fair is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Best Western Plaza Del Sol, 205 S. Atlantic Ave., Ormond Beach. Lucky’s Market has both full and part-time positions available and is seeking more than 100 new employees, Spokeswoman Krista Torvik said.

The new store, planned to open in April, will occupy around 27,000 square feet and employ about 150 people.

Lucky’s Market is a natural foods grocer with a selection of organic, local, specialty and gluten-free items. The heart of the store, Torvik said, is the produce department stocked with everything from exotic tropical fruits to local and organic produce options.

The stores offer house-made sausages, seafood and a wide selection of meats which have never been treated with antibiotics or artificial growth hormones, Torvik said. Pressed juices and smoothies are available, as well as beer and wine. There’s also an apothecary department.

Customers can dine in the market’s outdoor seating area, or a café area inside the store.

Lucky’s Market was started in 2003 by two chefs who bought a convenience store in Boulder, Colorado. Lucky’s Market currently has 17 stores in Florida, with plans to continue to expand in the Sunshine State.

The Lucky’s Market Community Impact program supports local youth and education, healthy communities, sustainability and resilience programs. For more information, visit
