There’s more social good in real estate to report! Lanier Property Group, a boutique brokerage in Wilmington, North Carolina, has signed on as a Giveback Homes brokerage partner. You can read the press release here. The giving keeps going… PS #1: The “Inspiration Lab” by Stephanie looks like an amazing initiative. PS #2: I still wonder why more agents and brokerages in the Seattle market aren’t doing more.

I’m incredibly pleased that Concierge Auctions and Giveback Homes decided to work together on the “Key for Key” campaign. …Key for Key™, guarantees that a new home will be built for a family in need for every property that we sell this year.

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.
