Here at Hodnett Cooper Real Estate we not only have the most talented group of agents but also the most giving. Since January 2015, Realtor, Carly Oxenreider has brought a new meaning to corporate charitable giving through her program, “Paying It Forward with Property”. She donates 10 percent of her personal commission at the end of each sale to a charity of her client’s choosing.
The Holiday edition of Golden Isles Magazine recently did an article on Carly’s giving demeanor. In the article readers discover that Carly’s passion for giving back started long before she came to Hodnett Cooper Real Estate, For her 40th birthday a few years ago, while living in Los Angeles, she asked family and friends to commit to completing random acts of kindness such handing out coats to the homeless or buying someones meal at a drive through window. We could not be more thrilled she brought her Real Estate talent and giving heart to Hodnett Cooper in 2014 . We look forward to many years of working along side this talented, selfless woman.
Carly hopes more real estate agents will follow her lead and create their own way to pay it forward. Maybe we can all take note from Carly’s example. With the holidays approaching the needs of others become more visible. There are so many opportunities to give back regardless of where you are.
