Philanthropy – Real Estate with a Cause

Not only are we full-time real estate agents, but we are full-time ambassadors for our community. Over the last 11 years, we have developed relationships with different 501(c)3 organizations to be able to give back on every successful transaction, as well as giving back personally.  For every success closing, Angels RE Group donates back to their preferred charity, or their clients charity of choice. If the referral came from within the 501(c)3 organization, a generous portion is donated directly back to the charity. If you have a charity you would like to see become a recipient of our successes, click here to let us know.  We would like to learn more about your passions and see how we can help support you as well.

Each of us have a preferred charity of choice, and pride ourselves on being passionately involved. We donate our time, energy, expertise, and commissions back to our local community to enhance the lives of others. Please watch our video below to learn more, and then below that you’ll be able to read more about our individual efforts with these charities.
