Nelsonians putting back into the local region

A few days ago the CEO of realestate.co.nz wrote a piece on his blog that drew attention to the fact that many companies in Real Estate do indeed make a real effort to put something back into the community.

2010 Summit Rescue Helicopter Appeal Day Overall Results

With that in mind, I’m proud to say that the team at Summit in Stoke, of which I’m a member, received this thank you from the Summit Rescue Helicopter.

As an office our team in Stoke raised the most – thanks to the generosity of local residents. Even though it was cold, it was certainly worth being out collecting on the day, many folks had stories, and earlier in the day while I was standing outside the local New World collecting, a young lady came up with a healthy donation, and said yes my Mum was rescued that past weekend.

Even at Summit you don’t have to look far to see the lives it touches, at least 3 Summit agents or partners have had unscheduled trips in the Rescue Chopper over the last few years.

Each branch, each & every real estate salesperson and each management team support the Rescue Chopper with funding. I am lead to believe the amount approaches a six figure sum each year, and Summit have just this year, re-affirmed their commitment again to the Rescue Helicopter organisation.
