Admiring the fine work all of our charities do, I would like to introduce myself and our new project, The Heart 2 Heart program, to assist them with their fundraising efforts.
When you buy or sell your home or business using RealNeighborhoods we give you back directly 20% of our net profit for that sale after the closing. Our program was designed to help you to help others, but the choice to give is totally yours. In addition, we will cover up to 20% of your closing costs when using our attorney/title company. There is no additional or hidden cost to you for using our services to market or sell your property.
Why would we do this? Prior to becoming a real estate broker associate, my background was heavily invested in work for not-for-profit organizations (501(C) 3. I began as Marketing and Public Relations Director for Olympia Dukakis’s theatre in New York and went on to become the fundraising consultant for Marianne Williamson’s Manhattan Center for Living, helping those with life-threatening illnesses. From there, I started Hoffman/Michaels LLC, a national marketing and fundraising company that raised millions in support of hospitals and major symphony, ballet, opera, and theatre companies across the country. The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Atlanta Ballet, and Nashville Symphony are just a few representational clients.
Since moving to Fort Lauderdale more than a decade ago, I’ve become active in the real estate industry full time, but one who is still committed to contributing to the public good. Due to Florida Real Estate laws, we would not be able to donate to charities directly. But by us giving back directly to buyers or sellers and suggesting that you donate this refund to your favorite charity. We are confident that you and your family will provide an unlimited number of contributions. However, it is totally your decision on who to donate to. The decision to give is very personal and we would not want to interfere.
I am founder and owner of RealNeighborhoods.com, the GPS of Real Estate, specializing in the sale of residential homes and businesses in Broward County by Neighborhood. I am also part of Castelli’s membership in “The leading real Estate companies. (The top 500 companies worldwide).
Real Estate home sales in Broward County generated nine billion dollars in 2015. Baby Boomers constitute a third of nationwide donors, contributing more than 40% of non-profit receipts. We have our share of Boomers in South Florida, and interestingly, they often do not choose to downsize at retirement. Many will opt for a move that upgrades to more contemporary conveniences, while retaining the affluent life style they enjoy. This could be great news to your charity.
When donors participate in our program to buy or sell their property it will cost you no more than any other real estate service. We are different because we give back 20% of our own profits from each sale, and cover a portion of your closing costs. We are the only company doing this. By bringing this potential donation to your attention, I believe you will find this is an easy opportunity to further your charities support.
This is my way of giving back to the community I’ve chosen as home, and it’s an easy way for you to provide additional revenue to your favorite charity.
I sincerely hope you will accept my offer to participate in our Heart 2 Heart Project. Please visit our website at www.RealNeighborhoods.com to see the sort of properties currently listed. All properties that are available by Neighborhood are updated in real time.
Please call me to discuss the listing or purchase of a new home. I look forward to being a part of supporting others that need our support.
