Here at Coldwell Banker Rizzo Mattson, Realtors ® we’re HUGE fans of giving back to the local community. Giving back is such an amazing, win-win experience: Not only does it help our local community flourish, it also nourishes the spirit of everyone involved. As recently reported by Greater Good Magazine, “Giving is contagious …. When one person behaves generously, it inspires observers to behave generously later.”
That’s a huge reason why “The Desire for Giving Back” is an all-important trait we look for when hiring real estate agents. And our agents have delivered! Here are specific ways that 8 of our agents are involved in giving back to their local community:
