Close to Our Hearts

We’re on a Mission With St. Jude’s to Fight Childhood Cancer

knew we could do something on a larger scale. That’s how we got involved with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The things that led me and each member of my team into real estate are different from what fulfills us today.We initially pursued real estate because we all have a passion for beautiful and functional homes and properties. But once we started working in the field, we realized our greater satisfaction comes from helping people. We often face some daunting situations helping our clients through transactions. And this is where we really get to know our clients — and we become close. Through all these experiences, we found that we love working with people. The real motivation that keeps us passionate about this business is helping others and getting feedback from them. Everyone on our team contributes to charitable organizations. Diane has been involved with Operation Smile for years — it’s amazing how the relatively inexpensive surgery provided to children born with cleft palates changes lives. Cristina sponsors a child, Edward, in Kenya, and donates both her time and money to a local organization in Vista, called New HavenYouth and Family Services. New Haven is a private, not-for-profit, multi- service agency that provides professional care, education, and treatment for youth and families with emotional, behavioral, and learning challenges. And among other charitable activities, Chris and I have been involved with the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

We thought about what was close to our hearts.When we learned about what St. Jude is doing through their research hospital to help kids and their families who can’t afford medical treatment, we knew this was it.We felt passionate about giving back to an organization that helps kids in the toughest circumstances. Think about it — there’s nothing a child can do if their parents don’t have the funds to pay for treatment.We can only imagine the pain we’d feel as parents if our kids were sick and we couldn’t help them. Can you imagine? These children just wouldn’t get care. But St. Jude is changing that. While looking more closely at how they’ve made an impact, their stories really touched us. St. Jude provides outstanding medical services that kids can’t access elsewhere, and if parents can’t afford the bill, they don’t charge them. For any of you who’ve read or seen St. Jude’s “Meet our Patients” section — the stories of children who’ve experienced cancer — you know what I’m talking about.When you read about a kid named Zac who had a rare form of bone cancer, has gone through multiple rounds of chemo and an amputation, and is still fighting, still smiling — you can’t just read that and do nothing. So we’re giving back. St. Jude’s is our cause. In addition to other contributions we’re making, for every buyer or seller referral you send us that leads to a successful sale, we’ll donate $500 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.We want to make an impact, and we want to bring you in on the mission. Thanks for joining us.

We are so grateful to be able to do this, and while we all continue to contribute on an individual basis, we, as a team, were inspired to make a bigger impact.We
