Today I want to share something that we do here at Intero that I am especially proud of. The Intero Foundation.
Let me explain.
When we founded Intero just over seven years ago, we set out to create a company that was different. That difference would be based on our values. One of those values is commitment – defined as; a pledge to do something, a state of being bound intellectually to a course of action.
As Realtors we earn our living by serving our community. So it was fundamental when creating Intero to figure out a way to give back to the community. We express this commitment now through the Intero Foundation.
To date, the Intero Foundation has donated more than $1.5 million to local charities. These organizations range in size and mission, but all work to positively impact the growth and well being of children by enhancing their education and personal development.
So why does this matter to you? Well, there is an obvious connection: We are helping to make the place you call home (or are hoping to call home) better. And that matters.
But we are also expressing something about ourselves that might interest you: That we are a big organization, but not too big to remember that we are part of something still larger; that we take seriously our role as an organization rooted in a place; that we believe we must give in order to receive.
If you share these beliefs, if it matters to you what your real estate company does in the wider world, then we have created something for all of us.
