When you work with an real estate agent that is more motivated by making a positive impact on the lives of others than a commission check you get a completely different level of service. Although I too like nice things, I've learned in life that lasting happiness doesn't come from possessions. Organizations supported through my personal real estate practice help change the lives of children in extreme poverty - my goal is to sponsor 20 kids by the year 2020 through World Vision International; ending human trafficking through support of The A21 Campaign; supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of which I have been a "Big" for over 4 years - an experience that has been one of the main joys of my life.
