Portion of Commission Earned Donated to Charity
I’m grateful to be in a position to help support a few charities that are making a real difference in this world. When you buy or sell with me as your realtor in 2023 you may choose a charity from below and a portion of my commission earned on the purchase or sale will be donated directly on your behalf. The amount donated usually works out to between $400 – $800 depending on the price range of the home sold.
I started this program in 2014 and have since been able to donate a total of more than $120,000 so far. Thanks for being a part of this!
