WE GIVE BACK
A quality that successful real estate professionals share is community involvement. RE/MAX Associates in particular are mindful of the impact they make locally, not just in real estate but as caring citizens. Over the years, our Associates have distinguished themselves as stewards for the betterment of their communities, concerned not only with contribution to their communities but also with the outcome of the contribution. These qualities are a dynamic part of the RE/MAX organization.
Children’s Miracle Network
RE/MAX associates are very active in their communities and volunteer and hold fundraising events for the Children’s Miracle Network and countless other causes all year long. Since 1992, RE/MAX has been a major contributor to the Children’s Miracle Network; a North American fund-raising organization dedicated to generating funds and awareness programs for the benefit of Children served by its over 170 associated hospitals. In 2019 RE/MAX across Canada has raised over $4.5 million on behalf of 14 Canadian children’s hospital foundations who are treating more than 2.3 million children each year. Throughout our 28 year partnership, over $79 million has been raised by RE/MAX agents who make a contribution with every home sold through the Miracle Home Program.
The needs of children-at-risk have always been our first choice, which is why RE/MAX has supported Children’s Miracle Network to fund sick children – in January 2015 we launched a partnership with Backpack Buddies who feeds children in Vancouver who otherwise go without good nutrition. Backpack Buddies is a unique program that addresses a very real need in the Vancouver community while providing a tangible opportunity for kids to help other kids. As of December 2019 our RE/MAX agents have donated $176,828 to this wonderful organization.
Sold on Saving Lives
The RE/MAX Sold on Saving Lives Program raises vital funds and awareness for the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation located right here in our city. The Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation funds, supports and advocates for:
- Accepting, respecting and valuing the dignity of each individual;
- Transforming despair, isolation, fear, and fatigue into inclusion, support, safety, and security;
- Comfort Care focuses on living, and dying as part of living.
Quest for Excellence
The Quest for Excellence program is a bursary program for grade 12 students in Western Canada. It was established by RE/MAX of Western Canada to recognize the success and ongoing pursuits of Western Canadian students in regard to leadership and community contribution initiatives.
Organ Donor Awareness
RE/MAX is committed to help raise awareness of the ongoing need for organ donation. Canadian Association of Transplantation assists Canadians in making informed decisions regarding organ, tissue, and bone marrow donation. With the continued support of RE/MAX of Western Canada and other organizations helping spread the word on the need for organ donors, we can help increase the number of donors across Western Canada.
We had our home on the market with Real Places and after only 3 viewings the house was SOLD!! And we got the price we wanted. When selling a house it comes down to the owner being given a realistic valuation, and ensuring the agent you choose knows their stuff. My advice to anyone considering selling your home is that they must feel comfortable with their agent choice. My wife and I would have no hesitation in recommending Real Homes to anyone in the future who is trying to decide between agents.
We have been extremely pleased with your attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the entire process. Selling a house is a stressful occurrence for anyone and you have helped to make it as smooth as possible for us. We feel that you truly go beyond the general duties of a real estate agent with thorough follow ups, reporting and always being ‘on top’ of potential buyers.
In a very difficult market, it took a lot of patience and persistence on your part, we very much appreciate all that you have done for us. You were always there and followed up on every detail and any queries we had during the process you were always helpful, professional and handled the situation with a smile.
