When we sell your home, you will be given the chance to choose from among a dozen trusted local charities. We will then donate 10% of our commission for selling your home to that charity in your name. Although there are innumerable deserving local charities, we have narrowed our focus in order to more significantly impact the truly organizations we’ve chosen. With your help, each of these charities can receive healthy donations from us each year and together, not only will we make your move matter, but we will make a true difference in our community.
Here are a few of our most recent clients who, by working with us, used the sale of their homes as a way to do some very real good throughout our community!
