The Giving Back in Real Estate Discussion

by Drew Meyers on 9:00 am August 16, 2016

If you read this blog, and don’t know I’m passionate about giving back — well, you’re not really reading. While in San Francisco at Inman Connect, I attended the “Finding a Cause that Aligns With Your Brand” panel that included good friends Caroline (Giveback Homes) and Greg Fischer (Bend Station), along with Matt Beall at Hawaii Life and Gloria Castellanos at the Agency. In all seriousness, why hasn’t giving taken off? Why does it remain on the edges of industry conversation, rather than front and center? A few … Read More »

Giveback Homes + ReferralExchange = A Lot of Good Vibes

by Drew Meyers on 6:00 pm July 29, 2016

Am I a broken record yet about what a huge fan of Giveback Homes I am?I can’t speak highly enough of Blake and Caroline at Giveback Homes. I’ll keep beating the drum… This week, they announced a new partnership with ReferralExchange: current Giveback Homes member agents will receive a ReferralExchange submit license. ReferralExchange will also donate $100 for every closed agent-to-agent referral, up to $20,000. The goal is to raise enough money to host the build day in Sacramento and build 3 houses internationally. ReferralExchange … Read More »

Seattle…Come On. Giveback with Giveback Homes.

by Drew Meyers on 10:16 pm May 31, 2016

There are only 4 real estate professionals who are members of Giveback Homes in Seattle. What’s up with that? For such a socially conscious city home to organizations such as Gates Foundation, Global Partnerships, and Fred Hutch — I’m disappointed. I wanted to give huge props to the current members here in the Seattle area: Stephanie Kristen at Windermere Real Estate Phil Greely at Windermere Real Estate Gael Goodwin at Foundry. Living Real Estate Brian Losh at Ewing and Clark The rest of Seattle (Windermere, Coldwell Banker Bain, John L Scott…) — … Read More »

A Few Thoughts after at Week in NYC At Inman Connect

by Drew Meyers on 7:00 am February 2, 2016

Last week was spent at Inman Connect in NYC. The primary reason for the trip was meeting with potential enterprise partners for the recently redesigned StreetAdvisor.com. The other part of my time there was spent helping my dear friends at Giveback Homes with their Startup Alley booth. It was great to spend time with Caroline Pinal (see below photo), and speak to brokers and agents about the great benefits Giveback Homes provides its members. As you no doubt know from reading this blog, I’m a huge, huge … Read More »

It’s no secret I’m a fan of Giveback Homes, as I’ve written about their organization numerous times. One of their co-founders, Caroline Pinal, will be speaking on stage on Thursday at Inman Connect, so don’t miss it if you’re attending the conference. There are a number of other Giveback Homes members speaking throughout the week as well, all of whom you can find here. I’ll be helping Caroline at their Vendor Alley booth off and on throughout the conference, so please do stop by and say hi. Look forward … Read More »

Gifts for Real Estate Agents (Realtors) in 2015

by Drew Meyers on 3:51 pm December 11, 2015

Are you looking for gift ideas for real estate agents (aka Realtors) this upcoming holiday season? Those who know me, know I’m not the biggest fan of consumerism (read this post I wrote on Christmas day in 2010). Thus, in 2015, please don’t spend money purchasing worthless material items your friend or family (who happens to be an agent) doesn’t need. Here are a few worthwhile Christmas gifts to consider: The first month or two of membership to GiveBack Homes ($50/mo). I can’t think of a better way to … Read More »

#GivingTuesday

by Drew Meyers on 6:34 pm December 1, 2015

Many of you know today is #givingtuesday. I recommend you giveback by becoming a member of Giveback Homes. Or Kiva. Or The AdventureProject (which is what I donated to earlier today). Or any other cause you care about. And yes, Black Friday is a con. [Graphic via Mary]

Change Heroes – Fund a Home, Then Build It

by Drew Meyers on 9:43 am November 13, 2015

I was speaking to the founder of HelpingB (crowd funding for social good ideas) because we’re thinking about doing a campaign for Horizon to get us onto Android. On the call, she told me about Change Heroes, which helps people campaign with 9 other friends to build homes in Latin America (in partnership with Techo). They also help you go actually build the home yourself. Change Heroes’s campaign with Techo reminds me of NewStory (coverage) and Giveback Homes (coverage). It goes without saying, I’m a massive fan of … Read More »
