The housing crisis is a growing issue, not just for the United States but for the world. Giveback Homes, real estate’s social good movement, today names Jessica Northrop of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty in Denver, Colorado as a 2018 Advocate for Social Good. This distinction is given to prominent individuals within the real estate community who have demonstrated their commitment to giving back and pursuing the goal of safe and secure housing for all and are eager to do more.
“We started Giveback Homes because we saw the opportunity to bring a focus on social good to real estate,” said Blake Andrews, founder of Giveback Homes. “Through the years, we’ve found a tribe of real estate professionals who are going above and beyond in their communities and the world and the Giveback Homes Advocate program will aim to mobilize them even more. They will also help shape the future of Giveback Homes.”
The Advocate program is a select group of Giveback Homes members who each had to apply by describing what the future of Giveback Homes looked like to them. Some of their answers included, educational seminars about home ownership, meeting with Congress, referral programs, and partnering with more non-profits. The Advocates are dedicated to amplifying Giveback Homes initiatives, promoting new membership opportunities, and leading initiatives in their community. The Advocates will meet once a quarter to strategize on social good projects and mobilize other industry professionals through their engagement.
Jessica Northrop has over 23 years of experience in the Denver area and is among the exclusive top 1% of producing brokers. She has also earned her Certified Realtor Specialist and Certified Luxury Home Specialist designations. “As real estate agents we are put in a position of trust and leadership in our communities,” said Northrop. “It’s our duty to lead others to opportunities where we can all give back, make an impact and leave a legacy that lasts longer than the last transaction closed.
“Jessica’s heart and determination are incredible,” said Caroline Pinal, co-founder of Giveback Homes. “She worked hard in Nicaragua and in organizing two build days in Denver, the next to take place on June 9th. As a Giveback Homes member, she’s consistently helped fuel our mission. We are so thrilled to have her as one of our Advocates. ” To learn more, donate or sign up to participate in the June 9th Denver Build Day, visit: www.givebackhomes.com/jessicanorthrop or contact Jessica Northrop of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty at 303.525.0200.
