Sotheby’s International Realty Gives Back with Donations to Five Local Charities

Foodbank, Transition House, Heal the Ocean, CASA and Unity Shoppe receive support

For the third consecutive year, local real estate firm Sotheby’s International Realty presented five local charities, including the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Transition House, Heal the Ocean, CASA and Unity Shoppe, with generous donations at their office meeting on Tuesday.

Out of every agent commission check, a portion is contributed to the local charities Sotheby’s International Realty supports. Through this program, the agents unite in a common initiative, increasing the impact of their efforts.

“The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Transition House, Heal the Ocean, CASA and Unity Shoppe provide enormous value to our community,” brokerage manager and Senior Vice President Greg Tice said. “I am honored to work with such a fantastic group of agents who give so selflessly. This is a town we’re all so proud of, and it’s important for us to give back. Our culture emphasizes that daily, especially this year when so many are in need of a helping hand.”

Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to affiliate with such incredible local organizations while also being a strong supporter globally of Conservation International in its mission to empower societies to responsibly care for nature and its gifts. Companywide, Sotheby’s International Realty has partnered together with Conservation International to protect more than 20,000 acres of rainforest and more than 88 square miles of ocean.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
