Local REALTOR Donates 10% Her Commissions To Charity
Betty Aguilar, REALTOR with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate III, has created a very unique endeavor for herself, and it’s stirring up lots of interest that reaches far beyond her industry. Win Win For A Cause (www.winwinforacause.com) was established to communicate Betty’s “forever endeavor” to give back to the community and possibly encourage others to do the same. She has vowed to give 10% of all of her commissions from closed real estate transactions to a local charity or non-profit of her client’s choice.
“I am not wealthy, but I have what I need in life. Others do not,” Aguilar said. “Giving to those in need makes me happy. I feel that I can make our world a better place. I want my clients to experience that feeling as well.” In her website, WinWinForACause.com, Betty keeps her followers informed of her Win Win progress and also gives readers interesting information about how other organizations are giving back as she is.
This past Friday, Betty delivered a check for almost $500 to Disciples Kitchen in Waynesboro (www.discipleskitchen.com.) Disciples Kitchen provides hot meals and food pantry resources for individuals and families in need. They have no paid employees in the entire organization, everything is done by volunteers. The client who recently purchased a home with Betty asked that the money be contributed to the charity that someone he had met at the DMV had recently told him about. “He talked about his labor of love, Disciples Kitchen, and the great work that the organization is doing in the community,” the client said. “What intrigued me most about Disciples Kitchen was the inclusive nature (non-denominational ministry) of the organization and method of operations. Disciplines Kitchen is unique in the fact that it makes it easy for other organizations and individuals to help out the less fortunate by providing and serving hot, nutritious meals.”
“I am passionate about my work,” Aguilar states. “I will do whatever is necessary to make real estate transactions go smoothly so they are completely satisfied with the result – whether they’ve purchasing a home or selling one.” “I want to be MORE than just your REALTOR… I want you to WIN WIN for a cause,” Aguilar continues. “You can get the service that YOU need and give to a cause that NEEDS YOU. Win Win!”
