Giving Back

Giving Back

It is a privilege to help people find a place to call home. Due to Hurricane Harvey, many people lost this basic necessity and so much more. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and County Judge Ed Emmett have established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax deductible flood relief donations for victims that have been affected by the recent floods. The fund will be housed at the Greater Houston Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. If you are able, we encourage you to donate to this charity.

Giveback Homes is a project that is near and dear to my heart. Their message is simple: “Homes change lives.” I am very grateful for the opportunities and good fortune I have experienced in my life. Giveback Homes is a way for real estate professionals and homebuyers to pay it forward.

I am joining a network of like-minded real estate professionals who are dedicated to social change. Through your business, I will make a contribution to help provide shelter for a family in need, in our local community and abroad. These efforts provide safety and build community so these people may thrive.

HandsOn Bay Area works with local nonprofits, schools and parks to identify high-impact, group-based volunteer projects. These projects may meet an ongoing need of an organization or its clients, or they may be one-time, large-scale transformations of facilities or green spaces. The Goldberg Group and Vanguard Properties were recruited recently to help beautify Mission High School. As alumni of San Francisco high schools, Justin and Nicholas recognize the importance of educational institutions, the learning environment, and the communities served by them.
