However, it’s not only the families of new homes that are reaping the benefits of the give-back model; “From the perspective of real estate agents, they need a way to differentiate their brand amongst local homebuyers and sellers and align with positive stories within the community,” says Andrews. “Naturally, giving back is a great way to accomplish this.”
Andrews notes that Giveback Homes’ members are attracting new clients solely because they are members. “Since homebuyers and sellers are inclined to work with a REALTOR® who gives part of their commission to those in need, this helps Realtors® acquire new clients,” Andrews explains.
