Real estate pros are expanding charitable outreach in their communities in a variety of ways, from reaching out to those isolated in quarantine to making food deliveries to the elderly and frontline workers.
The median annual value of REALTOR® associations’ donations to communities in 2020 has doubled to $10,000. What’s more, 92% of broker-owners have made donations this year, and two-thirds of REALTORS® report volunteering on a monthly basis, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ newly released Community Aid and Real Estate Report.
“REALTORS® are in the business of helping people and serving their communities, and we’ve seen countless examples of this play out nationwide during this pandemic,” says NAR President Charlie Oppler. “To hear that my colleagues in the real estate industry have pitched in to an even greater degree than usual is indeed heartwarming, but it is also not surprising.”
