Real Estate Brokers For Veterans of Fairfield County CT- A Facebook Group to Help Veterans - Join In!

I have joined a Facebook group started by J Philip Faranda of Westchester County, NY for like-minded brokerages who feel that this

Real Estate Brokers For Veterans

would be a worthy endeavor. If you'd like to join us, please log into the  Real Estate Brokers For Veterans group and add your name to the list of brokers- this way, we can have a list of colleagues in the different markets to whom we can refer veterans when the opportunity arises. As J Philip said, "the late Joe Ferrara often said that real estate licensees should have pro bono obligations just as attorneys. We don't, so this is strictly voluntary and so worthwhile. "

If you are a broker who is interested in giving back to the troops by helping a veteran family in need, please only do this if you are properly able.   Only give if you can.   But if you can, please do log on and join.   If you are a broker and feel this is a worthy cause, please join us.

If you know of any veteran family in need of my help in the Fairfield County (CT) area, please email me.

J. Philip Faranda  started this Facebook Group to benefit the veterans everywhere, and I have opted to join in to help in my area.

This group is for real estate brokers who pledge in 2012 to list and sell the home of a US service veteran facing hardship pro bono. This is our way of giving back and thanking these veterans for their sacrifices in preserving our freedom and our way of life.
 
There is one thing I am going to do in my little corner of the world to make a difference to a veteran in the next 12 months. I will list and sell one veteran's house in the next year pro bono. They have to have a special need of some sort (it can be financial) because it is a waste to do it for a vet who is flush with cash or in a short sale, but so long as there is a DD-214 and the possibility of an equity advantage I'll get it done for this veteran gratis as my way of giving back. I can do this for one veteran (or their survivors)in Fairfield County (CT). There is minimal small print to the offer, because I can't guarantee that a buyer brokerage will be cool with forgoing their end, but there will be no listing commission. 
If you know of a veteran who needs to sell and a pro bono arrangement would make a difference between hardship or not, please let me know via phone or email. 
 
For those who want to help otherwise, the Fisher House is an excellent alternative to give back!
