Swan Agency Real Estate’s Sharing Our Success Program is a throwback, reintroducing a program from many years ago that we loved and missed.
Our SOS program not only makes donations to local nonprofits but often introduces new community members to these organizations. The donations come from the broker and the company as a closing gift thank you to our clients that in turn helps so many others.
Post closing, all clients receive a letter with a list of SOS recipients from which they choose. A donation in their name is then made to their choice of local non-profits. They are also given a chance to share any thoughts on their transactions, what we did well, if there is anything we could have done better. We constantly strive to exceed expectations.
Our charitable giving program is one of the most important parts of our company effort, one that we are very proud of. We are thrilled to Share Our Success with our communities.
