NEWS: MDR Establishes Dedicated Community 'GIVE-BACK' Program | 2020
YOUR MDR TRANSACTION MATTERS LOCALLY!
Our Give-Back program is a philanthropic program established by MAKING DREAMS Realty to support local area causes, either through financial donations or hands-on volunteering. Since the inception of MAKING DREAMS Realty in 2015, it has been a driving conversation on how to support, serve, and give-back to our local community.
Because of a great team and the community's growing trust in our real estate services, we have been able to establish this program. "It's been exciting to get this program up and running," says Kevin Clark. "Our company has grown, and we would not be where we are today without the compassionate hearts and team support of our Realtors and Administrative Team," he stated. "It's never been about the transactions for us", states Renee Clark. "It's always been about how can we serve people well by taking a holistic approach to our services."
What's especially important to note for clients of MDR is when you partner with MAKING DREAMS Realty on a real estate transaction, you become a part of the Give-Back program as well. Proceeds from each MDR real estate transaction closed goes to the Give-Back program. "Every transaction counts in our local community. It's a feel-good, win-win for all involved," claims Renee.
Establishing a dedicated process to provide donations and/or volunteer services to local establishments at various times throughout the year is just another stepping stone in the foundation and future of MDR. Learn more
