It was such a great feeling to work with a Spark real estate agent because I knew that they shared my heart for helping others. It meant so much to me that when I purchased my home, a portion would go to help a family in need.

Spark Giving sparked my business mission! I had always had a vision to integrate service and nonprofits into my real estate business but didn’t know how. This professional-looking platform and simple mission made it easier to share with my sellers and buyers. They voiced to me how meaningful it felt to be part of a larger giving network.

Spark Giving’s model has not only enabled me to make a positive impact on the world, but it has also helped my business thrive in ways I never thought possible. By giving back to the community, I’ve seen firsthand how it can lead to increased customer loyalty, brand awareness, and even new business opportunities. It’s clear that what you give away truly comes back to you in more ways than one, and I’m grateful to Spark for showing me the power of this model for real estate.
