Mark McConnell and Liz Lee Marziello, owners of Heart to Heart Real Estate donated $15,601.25 to local charities in January and February. The Realtors are working to make an impact on the community through their charitable business model of giving back fifty percent of their commissions earned.

Their clients, the Avila Family, the Barton Family and an anonymous client, chose these local organizations: Almond Country Quilt Guild, Boys & Girls Club of North SLO County and Rainbow Bright Christian Learning Center as the beneficiaries through their association with Heart to Heart Real Estate.

• Almond Country Quilt Guild received $3,630
• Boys & Girls Club received $7,496.25
• Rainbow Bright Christian Learning Center received $4,475

At the close of each escrow, Heart to Heart will disperse 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 individual 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 McConnell, “Our business involves transactions; many of which are based on the circumstances of daily life: re-location, 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?” The idea for Heart to Heart was born; creating philanthropy in the housing market.
