In June, I had the honor of listing the home of my fellow FamilyWorks board member Will and his wife Patty. Not only was the home a beautiful Seattle Craftsman and the sale exceeded the hopes of the sellers, the sale of this home resulted in Coldwell Banker Bain and I making a donation of $2,970 to FamilyWorks through our community partnership program.
Non-profit organizations who partner with Coldwell Banker Bain and I receive a donation equal to 10% of our side of the commission on the sale or purchase of a property. In addition to FamilyWorks, I have partnerships with Wallingford Boys & Girls Club, Central Area Senior Center, and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. I would love to add additional organizations to the list, contact me for more information.
Will and Patty’s home was listed on June 12th for $840,000, received 5 offers, and closed on July 6th at $990,000, 18% above list price.
“Jamie was a tremendous help in the sale of our home in Wallingford. We would recommend her in a heartbeat.”
~Will and Patty Lewis
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®.
* Excludes transactions that have a community partnership donation.
