Live Urban Real Estate’s community commitment shines most through our Live & Give program!
Each year, in January, Live Urban agents nominate their favorite local charities and passionately plead their cases to the rest of the brokerage. In the end, Live Urban Real Estate elects 3 beneficiaries for the coming year’s Live & Give program.
Every Live Urban Real Estate closing signifies a collaboration between Live Urban, the agent, and the homebuyer or seller to provide valuable funds to the selected Live & Give partners. A portion of every commission is donated to the Live & Give recipient of the client’s choice, allowing the community to benefit from Live Urban, just as Live Urban is continuously benefitting from the community!
In 2014, Live Urban formed the Live & Give program as a way to respond to giving requests made by agents. The unique giving model was created to allow agents to have a voice in who the company supports, while also offering a way to help a variety of causes over the years.
Live Urban’s charitable donations have exceeded $45,000 the Live & Give program was launched and Live Urban will donate nearly $10,000 in 2017. Live Urban believes in the strength of our community and in using our success to give back to those in need. John Skrabec, President and Founder of Live Urban Real Estate, has seen the positive outcome of the Live & Give Program over the years;
“Brokers take pride in recommending their favorite charities, and are invested in the process. It also exposes the company, our agents, and our clients to many non-profits that are quietly working behind the scenes and don’t get much publicity.”
In 2017, Live Urban was lucky enough to partner with Mount Saint Vincent, Extended Hands of Hope, and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of the Rocky Mountains.
Extended Hands of Hope offers safe-housing and supportive services to young victims of Denver sex trafficking.
The Rocky Mountain Leukemia & Lymphoma Society exists to find cures for blood cancer patients, provide support to their families, and ensure widespread access to treatments.
Mount Saint Vincent provides housing and treatment to Denver children with severe emotional and behavioral challenges due to mental illness, trauma, abuse or neglect.
As we look forward to the New Year and to the exciting process of nominating our 2018 Live and Give Partners, we also applaud the amazing work of our 2017 partners and thank our agents and clients for helping Live Urban Real Estate give back to our unparalleled community.
