In our last newsletter, we highlighted our continued and strengthened effort to make an impact not just in Santa Barbara Real Estate, but in our community and around the world. Under the phrase “Real Estate. Real Impact.,” we commit to setting aside 25% of company profit to help meet the needs of those around us. We also like to give of our time, not just our resources. (And we like to have fun while we’re doing it!)
On February 22nd I, along with several members of my team, competed in a golf tournament in memory of a friend of mine from college. For the last eight years, Will’s Tourney has been raising funds for the William Wiersma Memorial Scholarship Endowment at Westmont College. Each year this scholarship is offered to an incoming Westmont freshman based on academic merit and financial need, but also celebrates recipients’ experiences in collaboration and teamwork. Will’s Tourney gathers the community in memory of Will’s life and character, especially his interest in collaborative thinking and action, and we love having the opportunity to encourage our community and support students who have a chance to follow in Will’s legacy.
