Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty has a love affair going with the community. And that affair begins with home ownership, says Owner/Broker Diann Patton, The American Dream hasn’t changed. Home ownership is still the foundation of that dream.
“We believe everybody deserves a home. Helping a working class family become a homeowner, build equity and establish a solid foundation in the community gives us a great sense of pride,” she said.
As a (nearly) life-long resident with deep roots in the community, Diann – as a leader in the local real estate market – understands the necessity for housing that our local workforce can afford. So, supporting the Nevada County Habitat for Humanity mission wasn’t a difficult decision. The firm’s marketing manager, Chad Lyon – also a life-long resident of Nevada County – agrees.
“It’s cool that we can give an opportunity to people who want to stay here,” he said. “It’s rewarding to see people live and thrive in this community.”
Coldwell Banker promotes philanthropy within, encouraging staff and agents to not only give financially to local causes important to them, but to also volunteer. They honor this commitment by having created the Charles Brock Community Service Award within their business. One way the organization leads the way and sets the example is by being an ardent supporter of NCHFH since 2012, sponsoring Street of Dreams and other Habitat activities. “I think it’s important for businesses like ours to give back to the community – to create an environment that invites people to stay rooted here.” Diann said. “That’s why we encourage our people to give back.”
