Give Back Homes



Giving back to the community is a HUGE part of the vibe over here at – it is something we love to do!  A few years ago I heard about this cool little startup called Give Back Homes.  The founder, Blake Andrews, spent a few years working at TOMS (shoes) where he learned the value of giving back: for every pair of TOMS that is purchased a pair is given to a child in need.  He took that to heart and brought it to the real estate industry.  Through Give Back Homes, Realtors have the opportunity to truly give back.  For each home that Rosie and I sell a portion of our commission goes to building a home for a family in need.  Not only that, but we are able to actually meet the families we help- and so can you!  From Nicaragua and Haiti to Texas and Oakland, we are building homes all over the world.

On Saturday Rosie and I joined forces with Give Back Homes + SoulCycle to help raise money for a local build.  We had a great time cycling with other members while raising money. #ridetobuild



In January, while at the Inman Conference in NYC, my broker joined up with me at a party sponsored by Give Back Homes – we had a blast jumping and spraying confetti at the photo booth.  #forsocialgood
