I was pleased to find another socially conscious brokerage this week — Giving Tree Realty in Charlotte. Short video: It’s no surprise I love their about page… What makes Giving Tree Realty different than all the other real estate companies? Our company is built upon a foundation of giving. While some real estate companies give a little here and there to charity, Giving Tree Realty donates 100% of the time to charity, which means on every sale! Here’s how it works: Our unique charity platform … Read More »

I’m a big fan of what I see from GiveRealty; how can you not be when you realize they have donated over $700,000 to charities? I actually came across their work in 2013, but took another look this morning and wanted to highlight two specific things on their website. First, their concrete giving examples on their how we give page: Second, their video… Keep the giving going!

I’m a big big fan of what I see from Conscious Real Estate in Denver… This blog post is spot on. IMHO, we need more of this in our industry.

Lets make the assumption you want your brokerage/franchise to be viewed as the local expert for the areas you serve. (let’s be honest: what agent DOESN’T want to be the local expert?) Lets make the assumption you buy into the long term lead generation concept/strategy I outlined last week. Let’s also assume you have the technology (either via StreetAdvisor, or the money and know-how to build it yourself) to execute the strategy. Assuming all of that is true — how, exactly, would you go about … Read More »

Another company I spoke with while in New York last week at Inman Connect’s Startup Alley was the Certified Charitable Giving Alliance (CCG Alliance). I spoke with co-founder and CEO, Robin Leigh, for a few minutes and learned a bit about her mission and organization. Since it’s not exactly a secret I’m a fan of anything in the social good space (see this), I asked her to answer a few questions and she obliged. Her answers are below… What do you do? The CCG Alliance™ creates and … Read More »

I’ve been promoting socially conscious agents/brokerages recently (& here), and here is another one (referenced in Brian’s post yesterday).

Do Good Real Estate is a homegrown, socially minded realty company focused on delivering a “feel good” client experience that no one else offers. Quality, Transparency & Giving back come standard. As part of our mission to “Make an Impact” we contribute 10% of our gross commissions to local charities in Wilmington, NC and Wrightsville Beach … Read More »

Those that know me, know I care a lot about doing something that matters. Where you are born shouldn’t decide whether you live or die. I live an extremely privileged life, as do you (I wrote that post 6 years ago). So, given I’ve been in the industry since 2005 but never sold an actual home – it probably comes as no surprise that I’ve thought a lot about the possibility of starting a “socially conscious” real estate brokerage (though I chose to start Oh Hey World / Horizon … Read More »
