Running a good business means being a good neighbor. And as knowledgeable professionals who work in their local communities, real estate agents are in a prime position to give back and make a positive impact. For Natalie Vandenborn and Laura Blossey, real estate agents with Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty in Bend, Oregon, giving back means supporting New Story, a nonprofit that helps create housing for the homeless. “With every closing that we do, we donate either fifty or a hundred dollars on behalf of our clients as a closing gift,” explains Vandenborn. This allows them to build their charitable contributions directly into their business. “I always say, ‘If you want to feel better about yourself, help someone else’,” says Blossey. “There’s no better reward than creating a difference in someone else’s life.”
