Giving Back To The Community

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties

Today I read an article about how the Napa, CA chapter of Realtors and Affiliates chose 14 charities to recieve proceeds from their 2007 annual holiday fundraiser.  This is a great cause and I think we should all take a lesson from this association.  It is important to give back to the community and there is no better way than hosting a fundraiser for local charities.

I give thanks every day that I am in a position to help others and not have to be on the receiving line.  Realtors should be giving back to their industry (in helping other Realtors) and their communities in any way they feel comfortable.
