Heart to Heart Real Estate donates $5,400
Real estate brokers Mark McConnell and Liz Lee Marziello, owners of Heart to Heart Real Estate, presented a check for $5,400 to Keith and Sidney Newsome of Templeton on Saturday, April 10. Homebuyer Lillian Metteer of Paso Robles designated the Newsome’s as the beneficiary through her association with Heart to Heart Real Estate. “Keith and Sidney Newsome were chosen by our client, Lillian Metteer, who are her friends in need of financial help,” says Lee Marziello. “They recently had a financial hardship.”
Heart to Heart Real Estate is based on the principle of utilizing funds generated by a real estate transaction to affect change through community partnerships, she says in a press release. At the close of escrow, Heart to Heart will disburse 50-percent of the commission to fund the nonprofit or charitable organizations that are designated by their clients; making it possible for any individual who otherwise would not have the means, to contribute to a nonprofit, charity, or individuals in need.
Heart to Heart’s guiding principle of giving through a real estate transaction applies to buyers, sellers and referrals from anywhere in the United States. According to broker Mark McConnell, “Our business involves transactions; many of which are based on the circumstances of daily life: relocation, divorce, taxes, death or simply the desire to make a change. If a transaction is going to
happen, either by necessity or choice, would people choose our company based on our core belief that we all “gain by giving?”
