Fiver years ago I found out an agent in our company had been invloved in a life changing event. His wife had been carjacked in their driveway. She suffered severe head trauma and was in the hospital for 30 days. We knew our agent would need support, so along with Carol Perry, HomeSmart's Chief of Business Development and Eric Kilstrom with VIP Mortgage, we created the HomeSmart We Care For Others Charity. In the past five years we have raised more than $50,000, which has paid for a funeral,meals for a week or month for our agents’ families, free real estate dues, home cleanings, flowers and more;helping our agents out in times of loss,illness, injuries or other medical setbacks they’ve suffered. I am so proud of our HomeSmart agents. We have a big family at HomeSmart.
