Today’s blog is going to be a little different. Today we want to tell you a little bit of WHY we do what we do. Whenever someone finds out that we’re in Real Estate we get one of two questions asked…


1.     How’s the market? Which, we love talking about, so you may find yourself stuck in a data filled conversation about all things Real Estate! 

2.     How do you like it? To which we immediately respond with “I love it!” (For real, we all truly love it!)


So why do we do it? It’s simple really: To help others. 


Yes, it’s hard work, it’s calls late at night or bright and early in the morning, it’s planning and prepping for showings, and lots of paperwork, it’s endless market research to make sure that our client’s best interests are being looked out for. 


But Real Estate is so much more than just selling houses. It’s helping our clients get into their forever homes, it’s helping buyers make a good investment for their future, or moving them closer to friends and family, or work. It’s about making this transition as easy as possible for those who are selling, so they can focus on the future and their new home instead of worrying about their old ones. It’s about helping our clients find their community. 


We know that buying a home is the single biggest investment that most people will ever make. It’s a huge decision and it’s stressful. We want to help lessen that stress and we do that by knowing our market from not only the data side of things but also the personal side. Want to be out in the country? Or up in the hustle and bustle of the city? Prefer to live next to the parks or greenways? Or are the suburbs for you? We know the places that fit what YOU want. Our goal is to make sure that we’ve found the community that fits you.


We want to help build up our amazing community.


So now what do we do with our Downey Properties community? Now we help! As we head into the holiday season, we wanted to do something meaningful for our communities, and with COVID we know that the smaller organizations are all struggling. So, throughout November you’ll see us highlight four local organizations, all doing amazing things within our greater Charlotte community. We hope that you take a moment to read about each organization, maybe spread the word about what they are doing, and if you’d like, contribute to one (or a few) of their causes. (We’ll match any donations made) And in December we’ve got a few things up our sleeve to support local businesses, along with some ambitious goals that we know our Downey Properties sphere can help us achieve, more details on this to come.
