Real Estate and Philanthropy

I love helping people find the home of their dreams and I love helping people sell their homes to move on to the next stage of their lives. Although I miss working with the many wonderful non-profit groups I used to work for, I have been able to combine my successful real estate business with my passion for philanthropy—every sale I close results in a charitable contribution—either through a community partnership with a non-profit or a direct contribution I make. I also volunteer for a host of groups and am currently board president at FamilyWorks in Wallingford.

I am looking to grow my business this year, so that I can support even more charitable causes. You can help me out with this goal by sending people my way who are interested in buying or selling real estate. Whether it’s a vacation home on Whidbey, a condo downtown, or a house in Bellevue, I can help your friends and family with their real estate needs. Through the Coldwell Banker network, I am also able to help with real estate purchases and sales anywhere in the U.S. and most international locations.

For every closed transaction for the remainder of 2015, I will make a minimum $250 contribution to a non-profit organization. If the transaction comes through a referral from my network of friends and family, I will make an additional $100 contribution to the non-profit organization of the referrer’s choice.*

I appreciate all the referrals I receive and am happy to reciprocate by referring people to you as well. I look forward to offering you and your friends/family/colleagues these services, and I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve you as your REALTOR®.

Giving Back

Anyone who knows me knows that I spent 25 years working for non-profit and community service organizations, primarily those focused on the needs of children, women, and families. Even though I’m no longer working in the non-profit sector, I still contribute a lot of time to organizations I care about, such as the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, FamilyWorks, and Ingraham High School Auction. I also contribute financially to many groups, and am fortunate that Coldwell Banker Bain has a Community Partnership program that allows both Coldwell Banker Bain and I to provide additional financial support.

Through the Community Partnership program,Coldwell Banker Bain and I will donate 10% our share of the sales commission to the following organizations with which I have formal partnerships. All a client has to do is tell me they were referred by the organization.

Do you have a non-profit you’d like me to partner with? Give me a call or email and we can discuss it.

In addition, for any closing before December 31, 2014, I will donate $500 to your choice of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center or the Phinney Neighborhood Association. (This donation does not apply if there is a community partnership donation.)
